McDonald’s Begins Efforts to Debunk Pink Slime Myth
WTVR ^ | Alix Bryan

Ever wonder what exactly is in a chicken McNugget?

Mcdonald’s of Canada is inviting folks on a video tour that shows the making of a McNugget , trying to debunk the rumor of “pink goo.”

Jeanne Moos, CNN, reports the fast food giant isn’t chicken when it comes to taking on a misleading photo: considered the pink elephant in the room.

“What are legitimately in McNuggets. Is there pink goop?”

This pink goop — a photograph that has snaked around the internet with the caption, “can you guess what McDonald’s food item this is.”

It’s said to be the entire chicken — eyes, guts, bones ground up into something called mechanically separated poultry.

Not us, says McDonalds.

“Photo hoax.”

But, pink goo won’t go away.

“For years McDonalds has been trying to kill this photo.”

Now, McDonalds of Canada has taken the goo by the horns, directly addressing the question in a super bowl commercial seen only in Canada.

“What’s actually in nuggets? Is there any pink goop?” Nope. Nada. None.

Mcdonalds wants you to see what’s in their McNuggets, so they’ve released a video tour. Starting with whole chickens, the breast meat is set aside to make McNuggets.

“…Dumping it into the grinder and adding the ground chicken breast meat to the blender with some seasonings and some chicken skin.”

That’s pretty much it: ground up breast meat.

“Here’s pink goo image, and here’s what we actually have, so it’s very different.” Yeah, beige goo. Just kidding.

Two independent food science experts told CNN that McDonald’s seems to be giving the straight scoop, though of course, there’s nothing healthy about all the fat and salt in McNuggets. There is one other secret revealed on the tour.

“The four chicken mcnugget shapes: the ball, the bell, the boot, and the bow tie.” “The ball, the bell, the boot, the bow tie? Do you see any of those things?” One thing they’re not making McNuggets into is the shape of a snake.

“Turn it into a bow tie.”

The fact they took 2 years to call it a hoax undermines their contention.

They’ve been calling it a hoax since about 5 minutes after the photos came out, but nobody listens.

Hot dogs were ALWAYS made of this stuff, if you ever saw them being made...

Some idiot libtard decided to do an ‘expose’ and called it ‘pink slime’ and should he horsewhipped for defaming the industry that way and costing millions of dollars.

Probably a vega-nazi who thinks everyone else should not eat meat because he doesn’t like it

People like sausage, but they don’t want to see how it’s made.

I thought the pink goop was what they put in the burgers.

Because you can't trust someone who makes pink slime.

Ok. I’m persuaded that “pink slime” is a myth. What about green slime!

Pink slime and the sweat of 7 nations?
Must be why they taste so good.

If the Lord did not want us to eat chicken, He wouldn’t have made them out of meat.

Why not just cut the breasts up into little nuggets and call them chicken strips or chicken tenders. Oh, they already do that?

I used to run a packing plant and we used to sell our chicken rib bones to a place that made hot dogs. They would crush the rib bones with a mechanical press which gets all of the meat out from between the rib. It’s basically the same thing people eat off the barbecue only from a chicken instead of a pig.

There is nothing unwholesome about it.

I have a theory about McDonald’s, that is, everything they make is all one thing, and in the back they have this big vat full of this stuff, these little molds combining, like SPLURT ‘Hamburger!’ SPLURT ‘Malt!’ SPLURT ‘Paper box!’ SPLURT ‘Here’s your change!’

Yet, I can remember sitting in history class and hearing that the Indians literally ate “every part” of a bison, and were called noble for doing so.

I have no problem eating “every part” of an animal. Even bone tissues and sinew contains nutrients that aren’t normally found in muscle tissue.

Pink slime was beef related, not chicken.

"Yet, I can remember sitting in history class and hearing that the Indians literally ate “every part” of a bison, and were called noble for doing so."

where worlds collide... funny, the McDonald's south of Chinle, AZ (on the res) has a large print of a painting of these nobles running a huge herd of bison off a cliff.

Not too certain the implication is they used every part. :)

Thank they are “inverted.” I was afraid those brown specks in the sausage were something other than pepper.
