Subject: Fw: McDonald's hamburger looks the same after 14 years
David Whipple, from Utah, had originally planned to keep the burger for two months in order to show friends how its preservatives would maintain its appearance.
But, after accidentally leaving the product in his pocket for two years, Mr Whipple decided to keep the burger for even longer to see how long it could continue looking normal.
Doctors on the CBS show noted that aside from the pickle disintegrating, the burger showed no signs of mold, fungus or even a strange odor.
Mr Whipple admitted that at one point he had considered selling the burger via online auction site eBay.
But, despite bids reaching close to $2,000 (£1,300), he and his family decided to keep the product for educational use.
He now admits he uses the burger to convince his grandchildren not to eat junk food from restaurants such as McDonald's.
