Scary, subby? Really? You ever eat ground beef? It's a vein. OH THE HORROR!

I bet your house reeks of Clorox and cleaning wipes, and you suffer from food allergies.

Still tastes like chicken.

Enjoy ... but not for me.

That picture almost made me vomit.
Then again, any picture of a McDonalds product tends to do that.

This is surprising; I would never have expected to see a story like this.  I didn't realize that the type of people who eat at McDonald's actually chew their food carefully enough to notice something like that, or indeed that they chewed their food at all.  I just assumed they crammed the vile globs of grease into their gaping, salivating maw, and swallowed them whole, like some kind of obese, waddling, brain-damaged Sarlacc.

Parts of animals found in meat.  Film at 11.
 
2013-09-08 04:34:59 PM
Still not sure if that's as bad as finding a vein in a hotdog or not

Chicken sausage?

THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!

I feel like mcdonalds probably planted it there to make people think they actually serve meat.
 
2013-09-08 05:30:50 PM
Oh my God, it's made with actual meat!?
 
2013-09-08 05:42:37 PM
Wait, are they actually saying their sausage isn't exactly 'normal' sausage (as in 100% porktastic) in other countries? I'm now actually interested in hearing if the stuff they serve in the US is pork or what now...

Actual meat, from an actual named animal.


OK, the name was "Rover," but even so...

Everyone seems to be missing the most telling statement...

"Said McDonald's senior communications manager Kevin Lim: 'The vein is white in colour because of the Halal slaughtering process where blood had to be drained.'"

McDonald's is selling Muslim food! They are trying to make us into Muslims!

I know, but unless it was advertised as such (or live in a country where pork isn't eaten) it's a valid question. Singapore does serve pork, but every single one of the articles on this I've seen just refer to it as a "Sausage McMuffin", not "Chicken Sausage McMuffin". Not even McDonalds' own releases I've searched for state an actual meat-type that the sausage is comprised of. And while "sausage" can be any meat really, it's not traditionally made from bird.

From the McDonald's website, the sausage in the US is pork, water, seasonings, preservatives

I used to love scrapple. Until I figured out what it was. Oh who am I kidding? I still love the stuff.

They're not kidding when they say that you do not want to see the sausage made.
 
2013-09-08 06:30:01 PM
I would have hoped that their sausage was made out of pork.  But that is hard to make halal.

sausage mcmuffin burger?

that is almost as bad as saying, burger sandwich.
 
2013-09-08 07:34:01 PM
Oh, noes! Chickens got veins! Chicken sausage patties got chicken veins in 'em! RUN! AAAHHHHHH!

First, it was too homogenous. Now, it's not homogenous enough. Stop biatching and eat your cheap-ass protein.

Nothing wrong with eating McDonald's occasionally. Every day is probably not healthy. I like their fries.

oh good, no issues reported
so long as no issues were reported i feel safe

When your food isn't over processed, you know that it's part of an animal.  I can see how McDonalds customers would get confused.

That's a good point. I don't eat McDonald's burgers because they don't taste like beef. While they are technically all-beef, they are a homogeneous, flavorless grey mush. Beef is what comes off my grill.

Chicken sausage. Just reading those 2 words together make me feel violated.

... Why? If an animal  has meat and intestines, you can make sausage out of it.

you realize Turkey Sausage and Beef Sausage is also a thing, right?

From the Singapore McDonalds menu:

Sausage McMuffin™
A delicious chicken sausage patty served in our classic toasted muffin. Simplicity perfected.


Flicking through the breakfast menu, half of the items called "Sausage xxxxx" are described as chicken sausage.

I don't really care about the article, but my complete lack of self-confidence is forcing me to take this opportunity to point out that I'm obviously superior to anyone who would even consider eating at McDonald's.

Thanks for understanding.

Felgraf: you realize Turkey Sausage and Beef Sausage is also a thing, right?

When someone says 'sausage', it brings to mind certain animals.

Those animals don't tend to include poultry (don't know why, but my guess would be that poultry tends to be lean).

Beef, Pork, Lamb, Goat, venison.

// Also duck sausage, but ducks are fatty ass birds (waterfowl have a fat layer for insulation).

Okay, that's supremely odd... They eat pork over there, but a good chunk (not all) are chicken sausage...? Weird...

Also, I find this to be supremely hilarious for some odd reason:

Well, if the animal's intestines aren't suited to make sausage casing then it just isn't a sausage animal.
