Well the last time had Mc D's was around 8 month back and I feel a lot better now. All their food is cheap crap on fake buns I did take one bite a few weeks back but spat it out the taste was that bad. Now they try and cater to the healthy food that people eat with here salad bowls n pasta would't surrprize me if it was laced with fat

I think the only fast food places I go to on any kind of regular occasion would be taco bell, subway and whataburger.

I wouldn't be surprised if there are cow eyeballs in their meat....they slipped up once and got a fried chicken head in their nuggets before....not to mention people eat far more adventerous things in other countires....I think I'd be far more worried about HOW they process their meat as opposed to WHAT is in it...

I had a friend who worked at McDonald's for a brief little stint - he grilled the hamburgers while he was there - the first thing they do in the mornings is take a a vat of dehydrated onions and add water to it - they use these onions to coat the burgers in before they slap them on the grill - I don't think it matters to much if you ask for no onions cuz they cook them ahead of there's all sorts of things going on you probablly don't want to know.....if you have the urge for McDonald's, order the it...and don't sue them b/c it was too hot - lol

Personally, I avoid them as much as, they don't take debit cards - talk about lame.....

Doesn't McDonalds claim that their burgers are 100% beef? If this was untrue you would think it would be an easy claim to disprove.

I think under the legal terms they use yes, they do use 100% beef... Now I think that means that the beef they use is 100% beef, but I dont think they have to list fillers.

There was a guy on TV a few months ago, I think it was on CNN....anyhow, the guy ate nothing but McD's for a month- he was of average weight and height. After eating for a month- he gained 28 lbs.

Sure, it's 100% beef... they just dump whole cows into a meat grinder and wah-laa, 100% beef, the whole damn thing

Just think of all the vitamins and minerals, mmmmmmmmmm...

I paid my way through college working on ranches in the southern plains. Once a year we took all of the steers to auction (about 500 or so). Definitely an anthropological odyssey.

Anyway, everyone I went with knew the McDonald's buyer. The rule is that cattle are graded, and marched onto a giant scale that weighs them in lots of 50 or 100 head. They are bid, and the longer it takes to bid, the more they move around. The bids come in slow at first; usually a crew from each firm is watching the herd, since one dying cow can blow the profitability on the other 49. So you watch really careful for any cow that has a broken leg, or is in obvious distress.

These are called "Downers."

Occaisionally, the bidding will be stopped, because no one will bid on the lot with an obvious downer in it. We resorted to some fairly devious things, like trying to get the one with the broken leg into the middle of the herd, so buyers might not notice him. (Never works--a limping cow bobs his head in a very obvious way.)

Anyway, the McD guy would bid on every lot with every cancer-eyed, wheezing, limping, blind and ulcerated beast you ever saw. It was pathetic. They literally dragged em on to the trucks sometimes.

Most meatpacking plants will refuse to take downers, or sometimes even the whole load that a downer came in with, just in case the downer has some new and spooky virus that looks like the start of an x-files episode.

I don't know, but apparently, McD has it's own meatpacking operation, or a close relationship with a single packing contractor. Because they bought steers no one else would.

The disdain was so palpable that, seriously, no other buyers or ranchers wanted to sit next to the Micky D dude. He was definitely a Pariah.

All this got changed in 2002, of course, since it is now illegal to slaughter out downers. They have to be destroyed.

Maybe that's why Mick Dunulds' stock has tanked over the last 2 years.

Eyeballs wouldn't worry me much at all. Cow BRAINS and Spine are very risky to eat due to Mad cow disease. If they truly are using the whole cow that is dangerous, I assume they do disembowel the animals first? Do they de-bone them? I am no longer eating ground beef, sausage, lunch meats or gell caps. I taken to squeezing the contents out of gell caps then tossing them.

Eyeballs are apparently a delicacy in some Middle eastern countries. But if you think McDogturds are iffy, read on ...

There's a Mexican restaurant near where I live that sells 'Brain Tacos'. Cows brains are fried and put into tacos.

Now, when I was a little pixy of about 7 years old, we used to eat fried sheeps brains and I enjoyed them, but there is definitely no way I'd eat any brain now, just in case. Especially a cows brain with all the BSE crap going on.

An episode of 'Fear Factor' included someone eating a cows brain. I wouldn't like to be him in a few years if it was BSE infected. And he didn't even win the 50 grand !

Reading through this is making me

If this stuff is true, why do people still go to McDonalds?

I'm glad I never eat any meat from there.

Here is an interesting story by MSNBC:
Certian parts snipped

After eating at this McDonalds in Erwin, Tenn., last March, one hundred people became violently ill. Some ended up in the hospital, dehydrated and even hallucinating. The Centers for Disease Control says sick restaurant employees very likely contaminated food with a virus, although McDonald’s disputes that.

Meanwhile, after eating at a KFC in Colorado, Gianni Velotta was infected with a dangerous salmonella bacteria. His mother says he almost died.

In a first of its kind national investigation, Dateline is going to use these health inspection reports to find out which fast food chains in our survey are the cleanest and the dirtiest. What we found may do more than surprise you. Some of the horror stories in Dateline’s dirty dining survey just might turn your stomach.

Looks like Taco Bell made out the best.

The 100 Taco Bells we sampled had the fewest total critical violations, 91, making it the best performer in our survey. But it was not without problems. Recurring violations included dirty food preparation counters and rodent droppings.

The golden arches, the 100 McDonald’s we looked at came in with a total of 136 critical violations. Some didn’t have a trained and certified food handler on the job, required by law in many states.

8. KFC
The 100 KFCs we sampled tallied up 157 critical violations, and two thirds of the “finger lickin’ good” restaurants had at least one critical violation. Remember, it was at a KFC, the Health Department says, little Gianni Velotta picked up salmonella poisoning last year. We’ve now learned that another child was also sickened there, and the same restaurant has since been cited for three more critical violations.

The 100 Subways we looked at totaled 160 critical violations. A recurring problem at the sandwich chain was improper food holding temperatures.

The 100 Jack in the Box restaurants had a total of 164 critical violations. A Ventura, Calif., Jack in the Box was a trouble spot. It had several customer complaints of food borne illness.

The 100 Dairy Queens we examined totaled 184 total critical violations. One Dairy Queen in Hampton, Va., rang up a number of critical violations last summer for grime, debris, and a inaccurate thermometer.

The 100 Hardee’s tallied 206 critical violations. Again and again inspectors cited the presence of insects and rodents.

100 Wendy’s had 206 critical violations. That’s the same as Hardees, but more Wendy’s restaurants had violations. So Wendy’s is number three in our Dateline dirty dining survey.

The 100 Arby’s had 210 critical violations. The roast beef specialists had recurring violations for improper hand-washing and employees handling ready-to-eat foods with their bare hands.

So which fast food chain finished number one on Dateline’s dirty dining list? It’s Burger King. The 100 Burger Kings we sampled rang up a whopping 241 total critical violations. Health inspectors cited a Virginia Burger King for 14 separate critical violations: employees not washing their hands, uncovered food in the fridge, grime and debris found on this ice chute, and on the drink machine at the drive-thru widow. We observed one employee scooping ice into a cup with his bare hands, an apparent critical violation.

Dammit, I likED Arby's too. I was hoping they would be an exception.

I'm not sure if it's policy everywhere but there is ways to find out what restaurants in your area have had violations regarding the handling of food. In Fairfax County (where I work) the information is on a website available from Virginia Dpt Of Health. Suprisingly, alot of McDonnalds scored pretty high. Anyway, here is the link to the Fairfax County Food Violation site thru V.D.H.:

The're's a great book "Fast Food Nation" by Eric Schlosser. He loves the taste of McDonalds but hates McDs with a passion.
