A man has made a vow to go vegan after he claims he found a nipple in his McDonald's bacon sandwich.
Simon Robinson, 27, popped in for an early breakfast treat from a Gateshead branch of fast-food chain earlier this week.
He walked back to his car and unwrapped the meaty treat to have a bite before the drive home.
However, before he tucked in to the sandwich, he quickly checked to see how many slices of bacon.
To his horror, he opened it to find what he thinks is a pig's nipple on one of the rashers.
Simon, from Prudhoe, Gateshead, said: "To open it up and to find that was revolting. It has put me off meat entirely.
"So much so I'm considering going vegan now.
"It's a fairly regular treat getting a bacon roll from McDonald's.
"I always open up and check what's inside because I have OCD. This time it seems it was entirely justified.
A shocked Simon, who is unemployed, drove back home to show his mum the nipple inside the sandwich.
He took pictures of the nipple so he could complain to McDonald’s head office.
The fast-food chain has been in touch with Simon and he says they have asked him to send it to them for testing, but Simon has refused.

Simon added: "I know you can find that on pork belly but I didn't ask for a pork belly roll. I asked for a bacon sandwich.
"I dare not eat it but I did eat the rest of the roll.
"I contacted McDonald's who told me I had to send it to them so they can send it off to a lab.
"If I did that they could just do away with it.
"I can't believe it. When I showed my mum she was disgusted too."
McDonald's has been contacted for comment.
