The video was shot at a branch in Old Kent Road, south-east London, and was posted on TikTok
In the video, the person filming, allegedly a whistleblower from the fast food chain, shines a light on the drain of a soda machine.
It shows earthworms stuck to the top of the drain, below the signs for Coca-Cola, Fanta and Oasis.
The video is accompanied by the caption: ‘This is McDonald’s Old Kent Road in South London’.
The worker initially claimed the creatures were maggots, but McDonald’s said they were earthworms.

A McDonald’s spokesperson told MyLondon: ‘We take cleanliness and hygiene very seriously.
“Unfortunately, a few weeks ago we were notified of a problem with the drainage of the drinks station of our Old Kent Road restaurant.
“We immediately closed the beverage station and our hygiene team identified the cause of the problem which was rectified before a thorough cleaning was carried out.
“The space was inspected by outside specialists and no drinks were served to customers until we were sure the problem had been fully resolved.”
The spokesperson also told the website that it was an “isolated incident, not a plague.”
McDonald’s also had to apologize last week and close its restaurant in Beckton after a video was posted showing maggots falling from the ceiling and onto tables and floors.
