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?


I have no idea.  Lard just sounded better.

I'd be interested to see comparison between a McNugget and just a fried chicken cutlet to see if there are substantial differences.  But wait, that would be actual investigation.

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.


in similar ahem chicken wing places in the UK, there are signs announcing such a phenomenon.

it surprises me that you have not run into difficulties

IdBeCrazyIf: 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.


That's too bad since it was completely debunked a long time ago.  As a quick Google search will show you.

RockofAges: 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.

Me too. Plus, who listens to hippies when fast food talk is on the line?


...not sure if serious...

But if you are, *fistbump*. Otherwise, I love nuggets. I don't like fast food in general, but mmmmmnuggets.
 
2013-08-19 09:36:28 AM  

GungFu: Egoy3k: 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.

I thought everyone knew Chicken McNuggets has Morgellons Disease  filthy minimum wage farkers making them.

And despite what we try to instill in all the kids in our family, many of them still nom on hotdogs. I'm always like "seriously kid? at least try to hold out and force them to buy hebrew nationals"

Yeah I'm going to continue eating what I want and not listening to whatever internet hoax soccer Mom's share on Facebook without bothering to fact check.  That's adorable that you think less than desirable processing is unique to McDonalds.  Bet you don't vaccinate either.

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.


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.
 
2013-08-19 09:48:55 AM  
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.

You do realize your link more or less confirms what I was affirming right? That MSM though while not routinely soaked in Ammonia, it still is treated to some degree with ammonium hydroxide, even in non beef products.

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.

Very true.

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's hard to white-knight for Mcdonald's, but the Snopes link doesn't confirm your initial statement at all.

(Although McDonald's Chicken McNuggets are typically offered as an example of a popular
MSP-based food, since 2003 that product has been made with all white meat rather than MSP.)


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.

It's certainly good to encourage kids to eat healthier food, but lying to get your point across isn't necessarily the right way to do it.

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.

If this article bothers you it's time to face reality. Here are the FDA guidelines for for contaminants in various food products. These are the limits they inspect to, and the limit is not ZERO.

CITRUS FRUIT JUICES, CANNED

Insects and insect eggs:
 5 or more Drosophila and other fly eggs per 250 ml or 1 or more maggots per 250 ml

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

Try more like since this last February when the entire pink slime shiat hit the fan.

And the point isn't to get people to eat better, including here, although an admirable goal the point is far too many people stuff their face without full realization of the processes and procedures that go into creating said food item. Pay attention to what you stuff your face with.
