McNasty Strikes Again: Unappetizing Frozen McRib Image Appears Online

McNasty Strikes Again: Unappetizing Frozen McRib Image Appears Online

We already know McDonald’s chicken nuggets are made mostly with fat, cartilage, pieces of bone, and organ tissue. And we know the oh-so-addictive french fries are full of GMOs and other unhealthful ingredients. Now, supposedly, an unappetizing picture of a frozen McRib has surfaced on Reddit.

The image shows a rib-like slab covered in ice, and one former McDonald’s employee told The Consumerist this photo looks exactly like what uncooked McRibs looked like when he worked there 20 years ago.

It probably doesn’t make you want to run out and order one (especially if you’re health conscious and/or a vegan,) but many people will continue to eat the McRib. It is apparently first grilled and then placed in sauce until served, because they know how to make food addictive and tasty.

McDonald’s called the McRib shape “fun and wonderful,” which is laughable. They also said they, “flash freeze the patty to seal in flavor and freshness, just like you freeze meat in your own freezer, before going to our restaurants.” Sure, you might freeze leftovers, but who knows how long the white slabs stay frozen, and the meat is actually “restructured pig innards coated in salt, specifically tripe, heart, and scalded stomachs.”

Processed, frozen foods are usually not nutritious choices. And especially not when they come from a place some people like to call McNasty.

Fast food and other chain restaurants aren’t really getting healthier — And McDonald’s is no different. You probably already know the McRib is not a healthful choice. It has almost 500 calories, 10 grams of saturated fat, and 890 milligrams of sodium — which is nearly the recommended sodium intake per day. The popular menu item also contains 70 ingredients, including carcinogenic chemicals. And to top it off, in 2012, allegations of animal abuse were made against the pork producer used to form McRibs.

Mickey D’s certainly deserves D’s in terms of health, and actually they probably deserve F’s for many of their items, including the McRib.

Now, read about menu items restaurant workers won’t eat. If they won’t eat it, should you?

Why is it white? Is it frozen? (It looks like styrofoam, which at least would be vegan, as far as I know!0
