We're pretty lucky here in New Zealand. 

We get horror stories coming out from overseas (let's be honest, mainly the US) of the dirty truths behind fast food chains, that 99% of the time don't apply to New Zealand's chains. 

Another one of those stories have been doing the rounds on the internet and it's putting Filet-O-Fish in a bad light.

If you're someone that actually chooses to eat the fish burger (seriously why would you though - YUCK!), then you may want to keep an ex-Mcdonald's employees advice in mind. 

According to a Reddit post in which users came forth to reveal which restaurant chain’s food they should avoid ordering and why, the Filet-O-Fish is a big no-no unless it’s been freshly cooked.

User Exiled-Biblu explained that when it comes to McDonald’s, you should be prepared to wait around for the fish-filled burger.

They wrote: ‘At McDonald’s just say you want a fish filet cooked to order. It will take ~5 more minutes but worth it compared to the filet that has been in the heated cabinet for hours.’

Another user backed the comment up, saying: ‘I came here to say this. Seriously. It’s been 3 years since I worked there but I can promise you that filet of fish is not fresh by any stretch of the imagination.’

Luckily at the New Zealand McDonald's chains, all their items are made fresh-to-order, so your Filet-O-Fish should be safe!
