    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!!!!!!!
