Duh dun dun dun duh, I'm puking it!
 
2013-08-19 08:29:46 AM  
I'm actually relieved that they found proof of actual chicken in the nuggets. Wouldn't you be more worried if they did NOT find bits of chicken hair in them?
 
2013-08-19 08:29:50 AM  
I question the validity of this "source".
 
2013-08-19 08:30:20 AM  
I'm not saying that nothing is wrong with the nuggets but honestly if you examine any food no matter how 'pure' and 'organic' under a microscope it will look disgusting.  Hell, take a high powered magnification device and look at the fingers that you eat nuggets with, I'm guessing the results are not that appetizing.
 
2013-08-19 08:30:43 AM  
Under high powered microscopes pretty much anything looks disgusting. Let's do some veggies next, I'm sure there won't be any dirt or tiny bug particles on those.

Very true.

In particular, where are the hair-like structures coming from?

Perhaps from the chicken?
 
2013-08-19 08:32:54 AM  
I haven't had a craving for McNuggets in a long time, since before this "all white meat" crap that has no flavor came out.  Now, a chicken biscuit in the morning, that's some good shiat right there.

Yah, but it just goes to show they aren't shaving all the fur off the chickens before they butcher them.
 
2013-08-19 08:34:11 AM  
One of the fibers looks like it's from a feather.  The other is probably either from a worker's arm or shirt.  Whoop dee farking doo.  Fast food contains gross shiat: film at 11.

We have a nice who loved chicken nuggets, I mean she'd horf those things by the pound. So one day I asked her to watch something real quick, and I showed her the pink slime video.

She doesn't eat nuggets anymore.

It's not unusual to have a lot of textile fibers in the air.  When you process food at a large scale and blend everything up, well, you get contaminates inside it.  Ground beef is like that too.
 
2013-08-19 08:39:30 AM  
I have to think this website is full of shiat.  They say the fibers look like Morgellons.  That means one of two things, they are idiots that don't know that morgellons is  a form of delusional psychosis, in movies where you see the person imagining bugs under their skin, that is morgellons disease.  Or they believe in conspiracy theory bull like what is found on this website:  http://www.morgellonsexposed.com/

What does this even mean?  Ooh the slime is gross?

Show her a video of a chicken, cow, or pig being slaughtered, hell, don't even show her one of it being factory slaughtered, show a her a local farmer doing it in his back yard as humanely as can be expected.

All food is brutal and gross, either you accept that and eat it anyway, or you become a vegan.

I think in general factory farming is the best way to remove all flavor from your food.  While I don't really believe the label "organic" generally means much, it does seem more ethical treatment of animals generally does tend to lead to tastier food products.  Our chicken eggs do seem to taste better, They aren't pooping on each other in tiny cages and get to eat a lot of tasty bugs from our yard.

As for your idea of shooting the animal with a marinade... I don't known, feeding the cow better food over his lifetime would probably do as much or more to increase flavor.

The main reason I buy freerange quality feed local eggs is they are delicious, unlike the factory farm eggs which stink like farts and give you bad gas after you eat them. Plus they're like xl to xxl sized with huge dark orange yolks. They're no pansy ass pathetic eggs.

Complete lack of reference in this article.  How many parts per million are these contaminants?  How does it compare to a store bought nugget, or a competitors product?  I don't eat the things anyway, but that's pretty much because I don't like the texture/taste of the things.  Microscopically, a whole lot of things look weird.

I wonder how many Morgellons sufferers have used methamphetamine sometime in the past. The neurological toxicity is well-established. Aside from the massive destruction in the brain itself, I wonder if there is similar effects on the spinal chord and in the nerves in the skin. I'd be willing to bet those toxic effects last for years or even decades after the usage has ceased.

I knew a guy a long time ago that used Meth occasionally. Not a full-blown tweaker, just on occasion when he wanted to stay up late and party all night long. He was pretty insistent that he had Morgellons, as well as being convinced that he'd been subjected to several "Alien interventions". Like being floated out of his bed at night and experimented on when he was a kid.

He was a little crazy before he ever used the tweak. That shiat just made him insufferable. And the damage is visibly and psychologically permanent.

I work at a...chicken wing place, shall we say. Due to our location, we have a large number of Indian (Continental, not American.) customers. Many of them are of the religion that cannot consume any beef. They order chicken wings. We use beef tallow to fry things. Including wings.


Jesus, you guys trying to kick off another Sepoy Rebellion? And just when the Raj got the wogs pacified again.

Yah, but it just goes to show they aren't shaving all the fur off the chickens before they butcher them.


They don't shave them at all.  They skin them with the hair attached.  I have a friend who works in their corporate office and you can buy the pelts at their employee outlet.  He got me a few and I made some seat covers.

It even goes on to explain that the "pink slime" you were referring to is a beef specific by-product that is different from mechanically-separated meat.

The Snopes link goes on to say: In February 2012, fast food chains McDonald's, Taco Bell, and Burger King announced they would stop using BLBT in their food products.

Like everything else in the world, what matters isn't so much the substance itself, but the amount/concentration you are exposed to. Ammonium hydroxide is classified as "Generally Regarded as Safe" by the FDA, and the amount you would actually consume from MSM is quite low. There is also a big difference between whether food is treated with versus "soaked in" which implies massive quantities to most people.

But really the main point of the article he linked to was to show that you had lied to your niece. McDonald's doesn't use mechanically separated meat to make McNuggets and hasn't for 10 years.

I'd be surprised if any chicken product did not occasionally contain a few feathers or fiber from feathers. Plucking chickens is not a science, it is an industrial process. It is messy and unreliable. I can't even shave every whisker off my face and neck.

Imagine trying to remove every feather from a chicken. Back in the day when housewives bought their chickens live and they were butchered and plucked at home (some little old ethnic women still do), this must have been a daily experience for some people.

Kitchen maids and cooks were as dumb as half a brick in those days--mental retardation caused by malnutrition, poor obstretics, disease and being born Irish (just kidding--the Irish maids were probably no dumber than the black maids on average or even French maids).

As for Morgellon's disease, I am a skeptic. Most likely it is like the panic after Mount Saint Helen's erupted and people began to notice pitting and scaring on their windscreens. These were already there but they had literally looked through them the way I look through the fingerprints on my glasses much of the time.

The ash fall didn't scratch most of those marks into the glass--few if any I should think--but people looked with fresh eyes and saw something that looked new. Post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy.

If you look at the left hand picture above, and then the right, you might naturally conclude that one is synthetic fiber and the other is synthetic fiber embedded in the skin. I've had that problem since I am a slovenly housekeeper at the best of times. You step on a fiber or perhaps a hair from shaving and it gets embedded in your skin. Perhaps the fiber of a shirt or sweater rubs against your skin.

Boy, is it a pain to try to remove a whisker or a bit of synthetic fiber from your feet. The older I get, the harder it is because I am not so limber as I was in my youth. Also, it can be quite painful if you don't remove it. In time it will probably grow out, but it might also be pushed in deeper. In the meantime, it is likely to become part of a callus that will put very painful and irritating pressure on your sensitive sole. Like paper cuts, these little beggers hurt like the Dickens out of all proportion to their seriousness and size.

In short, the fibers that people who believe in Morgellon's disease find in their skin or on it are perfectly ordinary organic or artificial material--hair, cloth fibers, etc. They have never turned out to be highly sophisticated nanotechnology used by aliens or the Big Evil Gubbermint to spy on people or unknown living or dead material when tested.

In short, ho hum, another journalistic mystery solved by the application of common sense and my remarkable ability to know things about the details of domestic life decades and centuries before I was born (if you were to read as much weird and antiquated humour as I have, you'd know more about life in the 1800s and early 1900s than the average social historian). Half of everything I know comes from reading hundreds of thousands of cartoons ancient and modern. They're a king's ransom in details about day-to-day living between the rise of the semi-literate middle class in the early modern period and today.

Yeah, but you showed her a lie (if it's the one with the raspberry sherbert looking stuff standing in as chicken meat at least). Chicken is much paler when ground and blended.

Plus, they don't use mechanically separated meat in their chicken nuggets.  Yeah, it's thrown in a giant blender.  The MSP is in some hot dogs though.

http://www.mcdonalds.ca/ca/en/food/all-access_moms/from_chicken_to_m cn uggets.html It's a touchy feely ad/propaganda piece, but it does show the real chickens in part.  It leaves out the messy "blend the chicken breasts up and mold into the shape we all love.

Also, since mad cow, mechanically separated beef is a not allowed to be produced in the US due to fears of contamination of spinal and brain tissue in the process.

All food is brutal and gross, either you accept that and eat it anyway, or you become a vegan.

I'm beyond acceptance into full blown embracing it. Could we raise and slaughter the animal in a way that ensures its flavor is at the maximum? Could we make a gun that shoots bullets that degrade when they are cooked, but also be filled with a delicious marinade? That'll save me a few days.

Pink Slime and Mechanically Separated Meat/Poultry are actually two different things. Pink slime is "Boneless Lean Beef Trimmings" and yes, they used it in hamburger patties until people got all up in arms about it, mostly just because it "looks gross."

McNuggets haven't been made with mechanically separated poultry (again something different from pink slime) since 2003.

So for someone professing that people should be more aware of what they are stuffing their face with, you're confusing separate products and making assumptions based off of youtube videos.

Damn right. Some people are pretty fastidious about dusting their homes. And we all know that dust is, for the most part, skin particles. I say, why waste the flavor you created yourself? Instead of dusting, I have a dedicated vacuum cleaner I use to collect all of this seasoning (It must be a separate vacuum from the one you use on carpets, sinks, and kitty litter for sanitation's sake). Simply empty the collection bin into a seasoning jar, recycled of course, and you have an instant "kick it up a notch!" moment just waiting for any special occasion!

As for Morgellon's disease, I am a skeptic. Most likely it is like the panic after Mount Saint Helen's erupted and people began to notice pitting and scaring on their windscreens. These were already there but they had literally looked through them the way I look through the fingerprints on my glasses much of the time.

The ash fall didn't scratch most of those marks into the glass--few if any I should think--but people looked with fresh eyes and saw something that looked new. Post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy.

If you look at the left hand picture above, and then the right, you might naturally conclude that one is synthetic fiber and the other is synthetic fiber embedded in the skin. I've had that problem since I am a slovenly housekeeper at the best of times. You step on a fiber or perhaps a hair from shaving and it gets embedded in your skin. Perhaps the fiber of a shirt or sweater rubs against your skin.

Boy, is it a pain to try to remove a whisker or a bit of synthetic fiber from your feet. The older I get, the harder it is because I am not so limber as I was in my youth. Also, it can be quite painful if you don't remove it. In time it will probably grow out, but it might also be pus ...


a level FIVE plague? oh crap! i think i could handle a level 4, but level FIVE?? SHUTTUP AND TAKE MY MONEY

megarian: Fark you. Nuggets are the only thing I like at McDonalds. I'd still nom them even if they contained spider babies and dog.


And if it contained a Spider-Baby? They've got the body of a spider, but they're actually a baby.

did you even RTFA? or you need to go back to 2nd grade science.
 In particular, where are the hair-like structures coming from? This is especially important to answer, given that chickens do not have hair.

manimal2878: Kristoph57: Could we raise and slaughter the animal in a way that ensures its flavor is at the maximum? Could we make a gun that shoots bullets that degrade when they are cooked, but also be filled with a delicious marinade? That'll save me a few days.

I think in general factory farming is the best way to remove all flavor from your food.  While I don't really believe the label "organic" generally means much, it does seem more ethical treatment of animals generally does tend to lead to tastier food products.  Our chicken eggs do seem to taste better, They aren't pooping on each other in tiny cages and get to eat a lot of tasty bugs from our yard.

As for your idea of shooting the animal with a marinade... I don't known, feeding the cow better food over his lifetime would probably do as much or more to increase flavor.


Yeah but that sounds much more fun.
BTW what do you think for this duck the French seasoning shells or the Peking duck?

manimal2878: All food is brutal and gross, either you accept that and eat it anyway, or you become a vegan.


Yep, well said. Part of me does not like that animals have to die for my tasty, tasty meat. Some times I am very confused. I could see myself going vegetarian one day (but probably not).

Nuggets are farking disgusting though. As I kid I snarfed them back like mad but a few years ago I got some for kicks and was disgusted by the texture. It really is mystery "meat" at its finest.

SpectroBoy: WHEAT FLOUR

Insect filth: Average of 75 or more insect fragments per 50 grams

Rodent filth: Average of 1 or more rodent hairs per 50 grams


It's suspected that those populations subsisting on a vegan diet were able to do so for centuries because the weevils ground up in the flour they consumed gave them enough animal proteins and B vitamins to stave off the worst deficiency symptoms.

I never thought I would refer to a chicken as "fancy", but that is a fancy chicken.

I would pet that fancy chicken so hard.

PizzaJedi81: hej: People are getting all upset about this, as if they don't take the nuggets and dunk them in a vat of boiling lard for several minutes.

Does McD's use lard or vegetable oil?

Funny story:

I work at a...chicken wing place, shall we say. Due to our location, we have a large number of Indian (Continental, not American.) customers. Many of them are of the religion that cannot consume any beef. They order chicken wings. We use beef tallow to fry things. Including wings.


It'd be nice if your restaurant stated that kind of shiat.

I don't get what is so disturbing about these images. We all know that there are specific rules about exactly what can be in our food- no matter where or what you buy there is an allowance for bugs, dirt, whatever. I feel like the people who get grossed out by this shiat have possibly a) never used a microscope and b) never cut up a whole chicken. The only thing that really disturbs me is when I buy a 10 lb bag of chicken quarters and most of the legs were broken. Please god somebody tell me the legs were broken after the chicken was dead or I feel like a horrible person.

Very true.

Yah, but it just goes to show they aren't shaving  torching all the fur off the chickens before they butcher them.


FTFY

when I was in college (20+ yrs ago) one of my friends worked for the local McD's. He said the nuggets came in as paste which was squirted in blobs into the fryer. Maybe it's changed since then but my view on eating them hasn't.

/no.

Have you even seen a chicken nugget? there are only three shapes. How could you possibly believe this to be true information?

When I was in high school I worked at McDonalds.  One of the three stores was attached to a wallmart.  The storeroom was located at the receiving bay so we had to bring stock in through the wallmart.  One day a man stopped me and was surprised that I had a crate of eggs on my trolly.  Apparently he thought that we used 'artificial' eggs. I asked him nicely if he thought that there was such a thing as artificial eggs that actually costs less than actual eggs.

actually I just read it's four shapes. And in my defense, why wouldn't I? I'm not stupid enough to eat them. UN like gweilo8888 who likes the bone shaped ones best.

Like in Belgium(I live in France) and certain specialty food places here. The beef tallow is pre-mixed with vegetable for everything fried. Delicious, though I do avoid eating too often.

This always bothered me too. I don't ever remember seeing a broken chicken leg on the farm growing up. Maybe it was because Grandma was quick with the axe. But I'm not sure me and my cousins were that quick in catching the chickens.

I didn't say you were stupid. I said you were gullible.

/or do you really believe your friend was hand-breading the meat product he'd squirted into the fryer, cooked, then presumably recooked to finish? (Because if he was squirting it, it wasn't pre-breaded -- you can't put breading on a squirtable paste. And if he was squirting it directly into the fryer, he never got a chance to bread it before he fished it back out.)
//man you're gullible
///if you even thought about it for one second you'd know he was pulling your leg

Meh. The FDA has an acceptable level of contaminants in food and medication. It's practically impossible to not get any contaminants in food during any process.
