Dave Alexander, who is a framer from Ontario, kept a meal in his shelf for 6 years since he had heard that McDonald's meals would not decompose. Due to the interesting hearsay, he bought a set of a meal, including a cheeseburger and French fries for experimentation on June 7, 2012.

For the six years, the meal has been placed shelf and it only darkened and got molded a little bit. The bun is about as hard as a hockey puck, but it looks just like it's brand new cosmetically.

Recently, Alexander and his wife downsizing his home and decided to sell the meal on eBay with a starting bid of US$22, and people all over the world can bid. At 2 pm on Friday, the bid price reached US$114.

Alexander was asked if the McDonald's can be eaten. He replied humorously, "I strongly recommend not to do that. This burger looks like that it can be eaten completely, however, it has been in the dust for 6 years, so don't, don't eat it!" 

The auction was scheduled to end next Thursday, but eBay removed Alexander burger and fries from the shelves for these products violated its food policy, which underlines that the food must be "clearly marked for an edible deadline." Alexander responded that "A man is joking if he said that a 6 years old cheeseburger needs an edible deadline."
