Morgan Spurlock conducted and filmed a controlled experiment by enclosing French fries in glass jars. One jar contained fries from McDonalds, the other from a local restaurant.

Similarly, in a recent interview with Author, Julia Havey, she also conducted a similar experiment and compares McDonald's French fries to that of a "regular" restaurant. Both French fries are (at the time of the interview) were 4 years old… and sure enough, the McDonald's fry still looked as if it was purchased yesterday. McDonald's fry did not exhibit a single mold spore and still maintained a normal appearance whereas the fry from another restaurant had completely broken down with mold.
