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?

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.

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.

Here's what he's probably waffling on about. Soooo many people still believe that rubbish.

You have to add an extra slice of cheese, like I do. :woot:


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.

I thought we were talking about chicken nuggets?

EDIT: 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.
