the American David Whipple claims that he is in possession of it, as he himself called for the 'world's oldest hamburger'. He has even a receipt from when he bought it in city Logan of the state Utah 7. July 1999.
In the above video you can see David showing his 20-year-old hamburger over 2 News. Over the last six years, David has had his hamburger stored in a tin can. But from 1999 to 2013, he had forgotten it in a pocket in a coat.
It writes multiple media including 2 News KUTV and KKTV 11 News
David Whipple has also posted more spread out on his Facebook profile about the special hamburger-history
The remarkable thing about the now 20-year-old hamburger is that it today looks as if it is only a day or two days old. One thing has, however, changed by the user. The pickled cucumber has completely dissolved and disappeared.
When David bought his hamburger in 1999, was Bill Clinton president of the united states, and the famous song 'Believe' by the singer Cher was still a hit on the radio. The price for hamburgeren was 79 cents.

David bought at the time of his hamburger, because he had to make a presentation about enzymes, and how things can languish.
- I forgot the subsequent hamburgeren in a frakkelomme. I threw the jacket on the rear of my car, and it ended up later in our wardrobe in the city of Logan. Since we moved to St. George, Utah, and the jacket hung still here a couple of years before my wife would give it away and found the old hamburger, says David Whipple, to 2 News, which at the time made a tv-feature on the 14 year old hamburger.
the TV station 2 News, however, has now made a follow-up on the incredible story, because they wanted to see how hamburgeren looks now, 20 years after it was purchased. And it has, according to 2 News basically not changed.

According to the hamburger-the story was spread in the media in the u.s. state of Utah, have a spokesperson from McDonald in Utah, Barbara Schmiett, stated the following to 2 News:
'Under the right circumstances, our burgers, like most other food, also decomposes. But as the story suggests, it requires special circumstances, that the food can be broken down. In particular, humidity. Without moisture either in the food itself or in the environment, bacteria and mold do not grow, and therefore it is not likely with a decomposition of the food. If the food is dry enough, it may not be broken down.'
So writes Barbara Schmiett, and adds:
'This is the hamburger is most likely dried out, but in no way it is the same burger as when it was purchased. Our burgers are made from 100 percent USDA-inspected meat. There are no preservatives or fillers in our patties. And the only thing that will be added bøfferne, is a little salt and pepper, when they are on the grill.'
It is not the first time that people show the old burgers back. It also happened in Iceland with a ten-year-old McDonald's burger.
