Silly Putty Ingredient in McNuggets?!
As if you needed yet another reason to steer clear of McCruelty foods … We know recipes can contain secret ingredients to give certain dishes an extra umph factor, but jeez Louise, some “special” ingredients should be left out of food altogether!
CNN recently reported that McDonald’s makes its Chicken McNuggets with the chemical preservative tertiary butylhydroquinone (tBHQ), a petroleum-based product that is also found in varnishes, lacquers, and resins—anybody getting hungry yet? Mix that in with a little dimethylpolysiloxane (an anti-foaming agent)—which is also found in Silly Putty (one of my favorite snacks *gag, puke*)—and you’re on your way to McNuggetville.
And if you’re not already disgusted with McD’s and their chemically enhanced foods, keep in mind that McD’s also uses an outdated method of slaughter for its chickens—these birds are routinely hung upside down in shackles, have their throats slit, and are then dumped into tanks of scalding-hot water, oftentimes while they are still alive and able to feel pain.
