You can try updating.mcafee and should remove the threat else mcafee should look into this since it's a valid detection and not picked up by mcafee

Hello @Bob-G 

We are sorry that McAfee is unable to remove the detected file. Please help us with the name of file or app which is being detected as threat. A screenshot of the detection will help us understand better. Also let us know the Android Version.
