A New York woman who fetched a McDonalds Happy Meal six months ago found the uneaten food were still as fresh as the first sight, according to AFP news last Thursday.

The artist-photographer Sally Davies claimed that her primary aim was to capture the forms of a hamburger in the intervals of changing from fresh to corruption.

Six months after taking photos from the day she purchased the McDonald's hamburger, she showed the photos that nothing big has changed.

The McDonald's said that "bacteria and mold only grow under certain conditions.... If food is/or becomes dry enough, it won't grow mold or bacteria".

Being questioned about the proof of her experiment, Davies suggests people to do the same.
