    Because of the low water content.

    Not because it's toxic plastic nasty food.

      If you left fresh minced meat out, it certainly wouldn't look like that 14 years later.

        But it is toxic nasty food. I assumed the fat content played a part, given that it looked dehydrated, but I assumed the bun would at least show signs of age. calcium propionate and sodium propionate keep it looking new, I guess.

          Well, the heat from cooking it at those temperatures sterilized it. That, and the small size.

            Pretty sure all their meat has an ammonia bath beforehand, too.

                i kept a mcd burger once the ex had left. i kept it out on the counter for 18 months before i got bored and threw it away. it made it thru 2 auckland summers. no mould anywhere to be seen. not on the bun or the lettuce even. i reckon i could have spritzed it with some water and nuked it and he wouldnt have noticed lol euww!!!!!!!

                  I'd eat it for $20.00. Just to freak people out.

                      i know! this was over 12 years ago and i only tried it as i read about some anti GE campaigner who had a 2 yr old one which hadnt moulded. i was expecting the bun and the lettuce to decompose or get some mould or it to be an urban legend. but no. and auckland is humid and hot so plenty of opportunity for everything to go mouldy very easily. thankfully i have never ever had a mcd burger in my life.

                          "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

                            Interesting. Every McD burger I've purchased has undergone drastic transformation within, oh, 18 to 24 hours. This must've been one of those magical ones made for a commercial...

                              No, but if you took a cooked patty of organic, grass fed beef and left it out it WOULD look exactly the same 14 years later. A guy actually did the experiment, although not for an entire 14 years of course. What's going on is dessication, it'll happen to any piece of beef of the same dimensions. Make it bigger and it will rot.
