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if you’re not already disgusted with McD’s and their chemically enhanced foods, keep in mind that McD’s also uses an outdated method of slaughter for its chickens—these birds are routinely hung upside down in shackles, have their throats slit, and are then dumped into tanks of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.

It’s so easy to eat with compassion. Click here for some yummy animal-free recipes and go vegan!

Just keepin’ it real,
Sunny

    ooh.. sounds delicous! lol jk
    I have been vegan for almost 2 years and feel so much healthier. I never ate bad before or much meat [chicken salad once a week and salmon about twice a week], but cutting out everything felt great! and it wasn’t placebo because I wasn’t expecting to feel better at all :)

    I’m new to PETA and I’m on the road to vegetarianism, and I have to say, if I keep reading stories like that, I’ll be too disgusted to touch meat… That story made my tummy hurt… Poor chickens… I’m new to PETA and I’m on the road to vegetarianism, and I have to say, if I keep reading stories like that, I’ll be too disgusted to touch meat… That story made my tummy hurt… Poor chickens…

    This should even detour non-veggie folks from eating this junk…but since the lethal doses of fat and cholesterol in fast food don’t stop most people, sadly, they will probably still continue to pay to eat garbage.
