Dunkin', formerly known as Dunkin' Donuts, is a fast food chain that many Americans stop by before they go to work.

They've got a delicious selection of breakfast sandwiches, donuts, coffee, and other beverages.

Krystle Platzer from New Jersey used to love eating at Dunkin' for all those reasons, but after finding bugs crawling in her breakfast sandwich, she says she's done with fast food altogether.

"I'm done with everything."

Platzer was running errands with her baby boy when she stopped by a Dunkin' in Lakewood and ordered two bacon, egg, and cheese croissants.

Her two-year-old, Gianni, ate one of the croissant sandwiches in the car, but Platzer waited to get home before she ate hers.

"I took a bite and a worm came "” I swallowed the first bite "” but there was a worm on my lip and it fell on the Dunkin' Donuts wrapper," she said, according to The Asbury Park Press.

"And it was moving and I freaked out. I was on the phone actually with my mom and I started screaming and hung up on her. I said what the heck is that? And I was going to take another bite out of the sandwich and I was like, don't even tell me that came out of the sandwich."

Upon closer inspection, Platzer found more worms, larvae, flies, and other small bugs on the sandwich.

But that wasn't all! She also said the bacon was raw.

The concerned mom took to Facebook to address the issue, where she posted many photos and a video of the sandwich.

"I got live and hatching maggots, dead flies in a bacon egg and cheese and my baby ate the same one before I got home to see this. CHECK YOUR FOOD PEOPLE. This is what makes us sick with parasites."

People on the social media platform were appalled by what they saw.

"Sickening," someone commented.

"I think you got the special Halloween sandwich," someone joked.

Another user urged Platzer to sue the fast food chain.

"I'd take that to a lawyer... that's a lawsuit... that's just so not right on so many levels... I'd also call your local food inspector."

Platzer returned to the restaurant to complain, but she wasn't satisfied by the response she received.

Platzer told a local news outlet that the owner didn't give her a refund but said he would look into the matter.

Dunkin' Donuts corporate spokeswoman Olivia White told The Asbury Park Press that they're working to resolve the matter and apologized for the poor experience.

After the county health department inspected the location on Friday, they reported that they found "no problems."

Platzer, however, says this experience has scarred her. Currently, she and her boy are taking pills for parasite infections.

"From now on, it's all organic for me and my baby."
