McDonald's Mcrib Does NOT Look Very Appetizing Before It's Cooked!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooFast Food

Have you ever heard someone say that because you like sausage does NOT mean you want to see how it's made?

Well that goes triple for anything made at a fast food joint!

This month, McDonald's brought back their very popular McRib, and the highly anticipated return prompted some to wonder how the mouth-watering sandwich is made! The results were pretty disappointing.

The HSUS Sends Legal Demand For McRib Farm Records

Due to concern over the cruel confinement of pigs at Smithfield Farms (the suppliers of the pork for the McRib), the HSUS has served the farm with a legal demand for records documenting the pig's conditions.

They believe Smithfield has broken their promise to stop confining pregnant mama pigs in crates for nearly their entire lives.

The pigs are impregnated over and over again for the course of their lives to keep a steady flow of pork coming through the farm.

Smithfield farms said in 2007 they would stop using the crates in ten years. They took back that promise in 2009, citing economic reasons. But recently they have been constantly growing as a company.

A rep for the HSUS said:

"Smithfield has refused to answer basic questions about when it will finally get rid of gestation crates. If Smithfield is truly committed to ending its practice of locking pigs in cramped cages that prevent them from even turning around for months on end, it should produce the records that prove it."

As a shareholder in Smithfield, the HSUS has the legal right to inspect corporate records and review data directly.

Let's hope they get to the bottom of this so we can finally save the pigs.

The HSUS Sues The McRib!

Filed under: Legal MattersHealthPigDisgusting!Animal Cruelty

Well, more like Smithfield Farms, where the pork for the McRib is raised.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) announced that it had filed an SEC complaint against Smithfield Farms over the cruel and unusual conditions in which the pigs are kept.

Last year, the HSUS got gruesome footage from a Smithfield facility of animal abuse and tried to take action, but clearly, the McRib is back.

The McRib has always stirred controversy and finds itself in the public eye quite a lot, so the HSUS is hoping that maybe now is the time to strike, while people are still listening.

We don't really understand the appeal of the McRib other than it's "limited time only" appeal. Also the fact that it contains chemicals that are also used to make gym mats springy.

Seriously.

Even if the McRib doesn't go away soon, let's hope the HSUS saves the piggies!

McRib Contains Chemical Banned From Food In Europe And Australia

Filed under: FoodFast FoodSick

McRib is McGross

Yuck! It turns out the McRib may actually be McGross!

America seems to be lovin' the McRib, mostly because it plays hard to get and only appears periodically, but we bet the sandwich would lose a few fans if they learned what chemicals are inside of it.

Among the 70 ingredients you'd only find in a chemistry lab, one is BANNED from Europe and Australia as a food additive!

Azodicarbonamide is a flour-bleaching ingredient chemical found in the McRib's bun, which is also used to manufacture foamed plastics like in gym mats and the soles of shoes.

Mmm…yummy?

Even more disturbing than knowing what else the chemical is used for, azodicarbonamide has been determined by England's Health and Safety Executive to be a "respiratory sensitizer" that potentially contributes to asthma through occupational exposure!

As much as we love eating things we can barely pronounce, we'll be skipping the McRib next time we stroll through the golden arches.

If you're cool with asthma causing chemicals in your food, don't forget to check the McRib's nutrition label.

It's got nearly half of your recommended daily intake of sodium with 890 mg, plus 24 grams of fat!

Maybe McDonald's is actually doing our population a favor by offering the McRib for a limited time only.

Do You REALLY Want To Know What's In The McRib?

Filed under: Icky Icky PooHealthFast Food

mcrib-ingredients

We're warning you now!

It's not for the faint of heart! LITERALLY!

The always elusive McRib has somehow slithered its way back into the McDonald's menu at select locations throughout the country, and although it's no secret to most that no, it's actually not a real rib, one may surprised to find out exactly what's in it - and how unhealthy it truly is!

According to the fast food joint's website, there are 70 ingredients in the sandwich - 34 in the bun alone - which include ammonium sulfate, polysorbate 80, and azodicarbonamide, which is a flour-bleaching agent most commonly used in the manufacturing of foamed plastics and the soles of shoes!

And if that isn't incentive enough, one contains 980 mg of sodium, more than half your recommended daily intake, and 10 g of saturated fat!

YUM! Who's hungry?!

The McRib Is Back!

Filed under: Fast Food

The McRib Is Back

While the country was rocked by the midterm elections yesterday, the biggest news of the day had nothing to do with politics, and everything to do with juicy pork slathered with BBQ sauce and gently placed in between two buns.

We’re talking about the McRib — it’s back!

While we normally wouldn’t endorse fattening McDonald’s food, we might make an exception for the McRib. If you can squeeze a little unhealthiness into your diet, go grab a McRib! If nothing else, do it for nostalgia’s sake!
