McDonald's McRib sandwich may be a cult favorite but a new viral photo that shows the pork patty in its pre-cooked, frozen form is making the rounds online and grossing out customers everywhere.

Billed by the fast-food chain as a "boneless, seasoned pork patty on a bun with slivered onions, two dill pickle slices, and plenty of sweet, smoky, barbecue-style sauce," the McRib, in reality, looks like a "frozen pig sponge," as one columnist put it.

A McDonald's employee snapped the photo of the frozen McRib at a Mickey D's in Canada, and then sent it to a friend who uploaded it to the social news site Reddit earlier this week.

Here's how the sandwich is advertised:

And here's how it really looks:

The photo immediately caused an uproar on Twitter from the McRib faithful.

McDonald's issued a statement about the viral photo, saying the frozen McRib is no different from frozen meat in a person's freezer.

"One reason our customers love the McRib is its fun and wonderful shape. Just like a burger patty is formed to be round and flat, we form the iconic McRib in the shape of traditional ribs," the company said. "We then flash freeze the patty to seal in flavor and freshness, just like you freeze meat in your own freezer, before going to our restaurants. The McRib is also known for its iconic taste, which is why we use a quality cut of pork — pork shoulder — to give our McRib lovers a thicker, meatier McRib experience."
