A retired prison guard in Wisconsin has eaten his 25,000th Big Mac, 39 years to the day after eating his first.

Don Gorske was honoured after reaching the meaty milestone during a ceremony at a McDonald's in his hometown of Fond du Lac.

Guinness World Records recognised Gorske's feat three years and 2,000 Big Macs ago, and the 59-year-old says he has no desire to stop.

The loyal McDonald's customer said: "I plan on eating Big Macs until I die."

The sign beneath the golden arches read "Congrats Don Gorske 25000 Big Macs."

Before he ate No. 25,000, he showed dozens of onlookers many of the different styles of cartons he has collected over the years and other Big Mac-related stories.

Before biting into the sandwich, he said, "It's been seven years since 20,000. Same thing goes this year folks. You can't have the carton and it still takes me 16 bites for me to finish a Big Mac."

The crowd erupted into applause.
