Another individual chimed in, stating, “It’s not hair.” Similarly, another burger enthusiast commented, “I don’t think that’s hair lol might just be from after blending the ingredients.”

It’s worth noting that there is no implication that the object in question was indeed a hair found on the burger.

Nicholas Wolf expressed, “Looks yummy.”

A spokesperson for Gordon Ramsay clarified, stating, “It is clearly the kink/risen bit of the chicken breast that creates a shadow once the cheese is poured over it. Hope that clears that up.”

This incident follows criticism of a £29.50 Gordon Ramsay burger sold at his Harrods restaurant two weeks prior, which was slammed for appearing dry, as reported on Need To Know.
