My theory is that they take all the pig carcasses that gave been butchered and are now devoid of all the normally edible parts, and throw them whole into a giant blender. This is then turned on and everything (including any rats, mice, cats, and undocumented workers that managed to fall in there) get ground into a paste that is then poured into mcrib molds, frozen, and shipped to stores. Chicken nuggets are made the same way...just with chickens.

Bon appétit

The notorious McRib has been spotted marking the return of McRib season at McDonald’s. The somehow still popular limited-time item features an unsightly ground pork patty (shaped to vaguely resemble a mini rack of ribs) slopped in barbecue sauce and thrown on a bun with a pickle or two and an onion sliver.

Before reading on, keep in mind that a McDonald’s “bun” for instance, is much more than simply flour, water, yeast, oil, sugar, and salt. According to McDonald’s the bun alone contains:

Enriched Bleached Flour (Wheat Flour, Malted Barley Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamin Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Water, [Gentically Modified (GMO)]Corn Meal, [GMO] High Fructose Corn Syrup, Yeast, [GMO] Soybean Oil, Contains 2% or Less: Salt, Barley and Malt Syrup, Wheat Gluten, Leavening (Calcium Sulfate, Ammonium Sulfate), May Contain One or More Dough Conditioners (Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, DATEM, Ascorbic Acid, Azodicarbonamide, Mono and Diglycerides, Monocalcium Phosphate,Enzymes, Calcium Peroxide), Calcium Propionate (Preservative).

One thing is for sure, McDonald’s has always had a phenomenal marketing department. The colors in the logo are a convincing combination in and of themselves. Red tends to make people feel passion, trust, and love; while yellow invokes the feelings of joy, feeling alive, and freshness. I know what you’re thinking, “fresh?” At least the preservatives might trick your mind into believing that it’s fresh! Their flawless advertisements placarding the restaurant windows do this feeling justice as well.

Here’s what it looks like in frozen form

If you’re still craving a McRib, let’s take a look at the ingredients according to McDonald’s:
PORK PATTY: Pork, Water, Salt, Dextrose, Preservatives (BHA, Propyl Gallate, Citric Acid).
What are these preservatives and why are they in your beloved formed meat product?

-BHA (Butylated Hydroxyanisole) prevents fats from looking and smelling rancid. It’s also commonly found in cereal, chips, and various processed foods made by mega corporations. When this preservative was tested in animals, it was found to cause cancer in the “forestomach.” Those who argue the safety of BHA state that humans have no forestomach, therefore it should be considered safe. However, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) states that if a substance has been found to cause cancer in three different species, in this case rats, hamsters and mice, then the United States Department of Health and Human Services considers it to be a carcinogen. But as no surprise, the authoritative agency of food and drug-related tyranny (FDA) still allows the use of BHA as an additive.

-Propyl Gallate is similar to BHA and both are commonly found in the same products together. Just as with BHA, the CSPI states that studies on the dangers of propyl gallate are mixed, but there is a chance that it can cause cancer, and should therefore be avoided.

-Citric Acid in a McRib means they’re adding lemon juice to it in order to keep it fresh right? Perhaps in a perfect world, but it’s likely that they’re taking the more profitable road like their corporate brothers and using GMO black mold. Follow this link to learn more.

MCRIB SAUCE: Ingredients: Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Tomato Paste, Distilled Vinegar, Molasses, Natural Smoke Flavor (Plant Source), Modified Food Starch, Salt, Sugar, Spices, Soybean Oil, Xanthan Gum, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Chili Pepper, Sodium Benzoate (Preservative), Caramel Color, Beet Powder

As for the sauce, it doesn’t start out well with HFCS as the main ingredient which is often contaminated with mercury, and surely loaded with GMO corn. The sauce also contains GMO soybean oil. If that’s not enough, the chemical listed as caramel color on processed foods has been identified as a possible carcinogen.

Back to the frozen meat patty picture that’s raising eyebrows and churning stomachs across the web. Judging from the boxes featured in the background, we’re assuming that the “Boeuf Canadien” is from the land up north. Naturally, this has prompted an onslaught of “McRibbed for Pleasure” cracks across the internet, while others are appalled that the guy in the photo didn’t use gloves. Thank goodness for priorities.

I tried one for the first time last year largely because of you guys. I’m glad you’re excited.

But I don’t get it.

All the scary stuff listed in the ingredients are used in most fast food meats, sans the few that still used fresh, never frozen beef.

I’ll still grind down a McRib or two.

Awhile back there was a thread about making your own:

Don’t have McRib in your area? Can’t wait til next year... make your own!!

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."
-- Justice Janice Rogers Brown

I guess this makes them a "cast" meat. Wink

I've never understood why those that don't like them reserve their hatred just for this particular sandwich. It's not like it is the only fast food item with chemicals included in the ingredient list and there is no chemical that is particularly scary in it. Oooooh, GMOs. Roll Eyes

Years ago, on a road trip, the small rural Illinois town we were staying in happened to have 2 McDonalds, both privileged to offer the McRib at the same time. After closing down a local bar we drove to one only to find it had closed, so we drove to the opposite side of town to the 24 hour Mickey Ds (after first calling and verifying they had McRibs), and even waited for a very long train to pass a crossing, just so that the three of us could order a dozen McRibs.

So sign me up for a case of my MIM McRibs!

As far as I'm concerned, the McRib is what the Boy Scouts should be selling when they knock on my door. Smile

Ima smash 3-4 in one sitting and wash them down with a sixer of Hamm's for good measure.

Must've been a bumper crop of pig anuses this year.

The McRib is the Deadbeat Dad of the fast food world.

Shows up once a year and we are all supposed to act excited.

What part of "...Shall not be infringed" don't you understand???
