McDonald’s has denied recent allegations that its ‘burgers are shrinking’ after customers, who have visited its Australian branches, have complained about the size.

A spokesperson for the international fast-food chain, via Yahoo News, has said: “There have been no changes to the size of our burgers.

“We are committed to offering our customers great quality, great value burgers featuring 100 per cent RSPCA approved chicken and 100 per cent Aussie beef.”

The statement comes after customers have been uploading pictures of their burgers from McDonald’s on social media and alleged they look smaller. 

One person shared a photo of a Filet-O-Fish compared to a McChicken along with the caption: “Have McDonald Filet-O-Fish always been this small? I don’t remember it being mini, kid-size like this?!”

People on social media responded in support of this individual.

One user replied: “We had Big Macs last week. Not only have the buns shrunk but the meat patties were so thin we could see literally through them. Was as if they had sliced them in half.”

Someone else said: “Just like the Quarter Pounder, got its name as it was a quarter pound of beef, it’s barely that now.” 

Finally, one person on social media has claimed it is due to the cost of living crisis, as they commented: “Inflated price…deflated goods.”

However, some customers have leapt to the defence of the fast-food giant, as they argue that nothing has changed.

“It’s the same size bun as the cheeseburger, it’s always been small,” one argued. 

Someone else commented: “Been like that for as long as I can remember. Only [with a] steamed bun.”
