One Bad Apple: Hey guys what's going on in this thread


YOU!

/you know, I thought it strange that McDonalds had a sign saying there were no apple products available today...

We as a species are getting weaker anyway. They used to say an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Now they say we need five servings of fruits and vegetables.

I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague and we are the cure.

What? Does this mean that McDonald's does not individually slice each apple serving from locally-sourced, organic apples?

What is it with you Americans and the bacterial contamination of you fruit and salads?

Europe has its fair share of meat scares... but c'mon now.

It was the trade off for not having to worry about Mad Cow Disease in our hamburgers.

The problem is that we're processing raw foods and mixing them together and spreading it around the nation.

If you took a single apple, rinsed it briefly, and ate it then your odds of picking one with enough listeria bacilli to infect you are near zero. But if you chop up a hundred thousand apples on the same machines and one of them had a sub-critical amount of bacteria on it then it spreads to all the other apples, and might stick to the machine if your washing regime isn't tough enough.

This isn't an issue if you're about to make apple pies or apple sauce, but when you're just going to rinse everything with a bit of ascorbic acid to deter browning and bag it to be cold shipped it's going to put some bacteria into the product. And if you're unlucky it's going to be the bad stuff.

What's really insidious here is that it's then being served to children. They'd be better off with whole apples. If you want to make them easy to eat then just put an restaurant apple cutter. It's about $100

And it's as simple as scooping fries in a sleeve. It's not a complicated process like making french fries properly, or anything else that would require more than 2 minutes training.

I know what listeria is, but what the Fark are packaged apple slices?
Does that mean there are actually people that are TOO LAZY to bite and chew an apple??

I've have seen lately that the "An Apple A Day" idiom should be changed to "A Banana A Day".

Easy to eat if you peel the seedless mutant Bananas like the monkeys do.

Happy Meals come with little tiny thing of fries and a package of apple slices that look like they are bagged in the same plant as their toys. I'm not sure if I'm just biased, but the fruit and salads of McDonalds have never struck me as appearing more healthy than their other offerings.

That said, Listeria can really fark up people with compromised immune systems. -_-

We prefer to be free of overreachin' gubbmint. If we had no FDA, and a fair and balanced press, you'd never hear these stories. So work remains to be done.

It's not laziness. It's giant junk-food pushers wanting a "healthy" alternative to the heart-stopping sewage that 99% of their customers buy. But it has to be cheap and have a long shelf life and be totally mindlessly uniform, like five trillion french fries that all look, feel, smell and taste EXACTLY alike. And it has to be branded, packaged, logoed.

That rules out whole apples. That rules out any kind of real food. Must be factory processed.
