A Canadian man placed a 6-year-old McDonald’s meal on eBay on Thursday. By Friday the ancient cheeseburger and fries reached $150 on the site, before eBay shut down the auction for violating its food policy.
Ontario farmer Dave Alexander had purchased the plain McDonald’s cheeseburger and small french fries on June 7, 2012 as part of an experiment.
For six years, the cheeseburger and fries have been sitting on a speaker cabinet in his office, and they still mostly look like new…
However, now Alexander and his wife are downsizing and he did not want to tote around the age-defying food.
Alexander listed the items on eBay for $29, saying he wanted to be able to cover shipping if someone across the world decided to bid on it. As of 2 pm Friday, the bidding had reached $150 and received many questions about its edibility.
Alexander planned to end the auction next Thursday, giving eager buyers amble time to bid – but they now will never get the chance as eBay pulled the auction for violating food policy, which states any food sold must have a “clearly marked expiration or use by date.”
