They are hard to stomach at any price.

[quote name='FloatingFatMan' timestamp='1360694130' post='595517402']As for their McNuggets.. I don't know about in the US, but in the EU they're made from chicken breast. They have to be by law or they can't call them chicken. :p
[/quote]

I thought I'd seen Chicken McNuggets advertised as containing chicken breast in the UK but I can't seem to find any mention of it on the website (though the ingredients list reveals that they contain only 45% chicken). That's strange as the Grilled Chicken Salad Wrap mentions that it uses chicken breast quite prominently.

I know in Canada, there's no pink anything, and they pride themselves on that. McDonalds Canada has ridiculously high food quality for being a fast food chain.

Do a search pink slim chicken nuggets.
[/quote]

I did a search for that I couldn't find anything confirming that is what they actually use, merely a bunch of rumors to that fact. Do you have a legit source for this? Everything I've read said they've used proper white meat for at least the last 10 years along with using fillers like corn.

Oh god not this again.

A. McDonalds does not use mechanically separated chicken (the "pink slim") in their chicken nuggets
B. Why the hell do you find mechanically separated chicken disgusting? If you do you should never eat a hot dog ever again.

Is it because its pink? All raw chicken in pink. Do you not like the idea of it being goopy? You're cool with eating animal muscle, but if its mashed into a goop. Nope, its disgusting. What?

One about their burgers and then stopping the use of it. However, I still wouldnt trust them. There are also a lot of other options to choose from restaurant wise.

Well that's what it used to be. McDonalds and Burger King both sold double cheeseburgers for $1. Obviously, Burger King's were far better, but they both made the move to a double cheeseburger with one slice of cheese claiming cheese prices were too high. Now I guess they won't have any doubles for $1. I actually used to get the doubles every so often from Burger King back when they sold them. I haven't been in a Burger King or McDonalds in many months though.

Only things I like from McDonalds are the fries and the coffee. I very seldom go there. I prefer Wendy's, or A & W.

But yet McDonald's admits to using it in their burgers...so I wouldn't put it past he nuggets either. Maybe they do not use it anymore...but they have at one time.

[b]EDIT: [/b]You're assuming things about some of their products without anything to back it up (I don't really care either way to be honest as I don't eat there except maybe a couple times a year). Just find it odd how people automatically assume the worst without any evidence to the fact.

They used it in burgers so I wouldnt doubt they used it in nuggets as well.

Point is, never know what you are getting at McDonalds.

Yes, I am assuming a little but do you think they would of just limited the use of that to the beef?

Pink slime is essentially dog food.
While this assertion may be used derisively, most dogs seem healthier than their owners.

It's cheap meat. But it's still meat. All McD did when they banned it was move up to higher priced meat.

We're talking about now, not 10+ years ago.

And sure you do. Just look at the ingredients list. Bam, instant knowledge.

Yet 'pink slime' wasn't used in Europe, which goes to show that McDonald's never needed to use it. It just shows that without adequate regulation businesses will take whatever steps they can to reduce costs.

The article I posted with them using it in beef was from 1yr ago. About the time I last looked in to it (besides this afternoon).

The EU probably has a bit of horse going spare.

McDonald's McNeigh Burger has a ring to it.

Too much soy for a male is not a healthy thing. It can lead to a lower sperm count, lower testosterone, and makes it harder for the male body to absorb vitamins and minerals. Males should generally not each much soy, and eat more almonds.

Depends on how much of it you eat. If you make it a daily habit, then yea. But every now and then wont hurt anything. I will not ever have their chicken nuggets after I saw that it is made out of pink slim. Grossed me out. I mainly just go their for their fries...as long as they are fresh. But again, I maybe go there a couple times a month. If that.

Genetic modification is not a one time deal. You eat something genetically modified to produce its own pesticide, it turns your gut bacteria into the same thing.

I am constantly dealing with people who spout "oh once in a blue moon doesn't hurt". It does. No matter how small, it does, especially if the person eating it is young with a developing mind and body.

FWIW, I am a health advocate constantly trying to improve people's lives, including my own, via nutrition. You could call me a nutritionist, but I have no desire to get into the career field.

Oh and as for those fries, they're not real either. They don't decay like normal food; you can store them for months without issue. Do that to real fries made straight from real potatoes, they start decaying like normal. I honestly don't see how anyone can find their fake food appealing.

I could be alone in saying this, but I like Mcdonalds. Even if they upped the price by 10 or 20 cents, its still a great price.

[quote name='Blank' timestamp='1360706501' post='595517772']yeah but you guys have that premium horse meat in it.[/quote]

As far as I'm aware McDonald's wasn't actually affected by the horse-meat scandal because they have quite high standards for beef in the UK and have a lot more control over the supply chain than most businesses. Burger King was affected though.

The horse meat scandal has certainly revealed some major faults in the supply chain of manufacturers and the regulatory efficacy of the EU as a whole, which highlights how easily criminals can exploit the system. Consumers should never have to worry that the contents in the box match the label and it's very embarrassing for the EU and more specifically the UK and Ireland.
