    Chicken McNugget Anyone?!

    Primal Fuel
    Mechanically separated meat:

    because it's crawling with bacteria, it will be washed with ammonia... Then, because it tastes gross, it will be reflavored artificially. Then, because it is weirdly pink, it will be dyed with artificial color.

    Fair is fair:

    McDonald's famous McNuggets no longer do contain "mechanically separated poultry as defined by the federal government.

    1. That stuff might not even be chicken. But even if it is:

    2. The entire chicken is not ground up to make that paste; the bones and such are removed.

    3. The meat is not "soaked" in ammonia. Ammonia is not an approved food additive. (However, a South Dakota processing plant had been injecting ammonia into their hamburger "meat" with USDA approval, but that approval has since been withdrawn.)

    (thanks, Kottke)

    For something yummier, watch bacon being made.

    Dang. It was fun while it lasted, haha. Normally I'm one who checks snopes.com before sending, but that picture of pink goo was too funny!

    Oh wow, that has put me off chicken nuggets, hot dogs, and all of that forever. Although I have to admit the idea of carefully using all parts of the chicken and even striping the bones is very primal. I guess I'm not quite ready to go THAT primal yet.

    I think the meat is the healthiest part of the nugget. Whatever is in their coating is probably worse for you, not to mention whatever shitty vegetable oil they cook it in.
