Default McDonalds beef patty has no fillers?!

they have no fillers. it's all from the cow. notice it says USDA inspected beef. it doesnt say anything about the grade of the beef used.

Default RE: McDonalds beef patty has no fillers?!

Actually, each franchise is responsible to buy the beef/cereal mix he want. They can buy 50% beef/50% cereal filler for cheaper than 75%/25%. But the 50% part of beed is made of 100% pure beef... And this is 100% true, sadly.

this includes the quarter pounder.

but the website doesnt say what % of that is lean beef and what % is fat
I don't believe it.... why doesn't someone with lab access check out their claim... it should be easy enough to get some uncooked burgers... Compare it to beef that you *know* is 100%

I don't care if the remains of my dead ancestors are in Burger King beef - It just plain TASTES BETTER than McD's.

I don't eat fast food often, but every now and then, a nice whopper jr. with bacon is a nice way to get rid of a hunger pang.

I thought I had heard that mcdonalds also refused to buy meat that was collected with advanced meat recovery systems (google it if you're curious...neat machines).

Maybe their beef patty is 100% usda inspected beef but when was the last time you ordered a beef patty? The cheeseburgers are probably served with an anus patty Its a loophole

If what they say is true, I think they cut off all the prime meat then grind up to whole cow, bones, guts sh1tty meat and all. Just my opinion of course. Tastes like hell compared to home made sirloin burgers.
