The famous chef, Jamie Oliver, won the court process against largest food group,– McDonalds, proving that their products are not edible!

Hamburger Chef Jamie Oliver Proves McDonald’s Burgers “Unfit for Human Consumption”

Hamburger chef Jamie Oliver has won his long-fought battle against one of the largest fast food chains in the world – McDonalds. After Oliver showed how McDonald’s hamburgers are made, the franchise finally announced that it will change its recipe, and yet there was barely a peep about this in the mainstream, corporate media.
Oliver repeatedly explained to the public, over several years – in documentaries, television shows and interviews – that the fatty parts of beef are “washed” in ammonium hydroxide and used in the filling of the burger. Before this process, according to the presenter, the food is deemed unfit for human consumption. According to the chef and hamburger enthusiast, Jamie Oliver, who has undertaken a war against the fast food industry, “Basically, we’re taking a product that would be sold in the cheapest way for dogs, and after this process, is being given to human beings.”
Besides the low quality of the meat, the ammonium hydroxide is harmful to health. Oliver famously coined this the “the pink slime process.”
“Why would any sensible human being put meat filled with ammonia in the mouths of their children?” Oliver asked.
In one of his colorful demonstrations, Oliver demonstrates to children how nuggets are made. After selecting the best parts of the chicken, the remains (fat, skin and internal organs) are processed for these fried foods.

In reply to all of the bad press this process has received from Oliver, the company Arcos Dorados, the franchise manager for McDonalds in Latin America, said such a procedure is not practiced in their region. The same, it should be noted, applies to the product in Ireland and the UK, where they use meat from local suppliers.
In the United States, however, Burger King and Taco Bell had already abandoned the use of ammonia in their products. The food industry uses ammonium hydroxide as an anti-microbial agent in meats, which has allowed McDonald’s to use otherwise “inedible meat.”
Most disturbing of all is the horrifying fact that because ammonium hydroxide is considered part of the “component in a production procedure” by the USDA, consumers may not know when the chemical is in their food.
On the official website of McDonald’s, the company claims that their meat is cheap because, while serving many people every day, they are able to buy from their suppliers at a lower price, and offer the best quality products. But if “pink slime” was really the “best quality” that McDonalds can muster in the US, then why were they able do better in Latin America and Europe? More to the point, why can they apparently do better now in the United States?
These questions remains unanswered by the franchise which has denied that the decision to change the recipe is related to Jamie Oliver’s campaign. On the site, McDonald’s has admitted that they have abandoned the beef filler from its burger patties.

My son will be unhappy about this cheating by the beloved Mr. McDonald, he loves his french fries. Made us stop at every McD during our India trip.

Wont that weaken the immune system, which is strenghtened otherwise by roadside pani puris.

Now, that reminds me of your review on Delhi belly, but i have dug up enough of old threads for day. Will dig that up some other other day.

Wont animal rights activists complain that what is unfit for humans is unfit for animals too.

Doesnt seem to affect the Desi choice at Mcdonald which is fries.

McDonald's are civilizing points in India

People speak to waiters in English there and try to be as gentle as possible some to the extent that they try to behave as if they are from house of Windsors

Not only McDonalds everywhere else, especially in North India people speak English and often without proper grammar.. Hindi/Punjabi is considered cheap.

At this relative's wedding I attended in Gurgaon in January, the photographer commented to me.. I realized you came from US because you speak Hindi/Punjabi to whoever you meet not English, unlike the locals here. In fact, a couple North Indians in my team have never spoken in Hindi to me even when we are talking in private, only when Americans are in vicinity do they speak Hindi.

The best way to observe this is Delhi Metro, people generally mix english with hindi so much that it is fun to listen to.

"I will meet you wahan pe" types

For Delhi's punjabi crowd, anybody speaking in either hindi or punjabi is Paindu.

The most hilarious is men calling each other "Dude"

I think that applies to whole India except Gujjus

Madarassis also suffer from this syndrome. They have better grammar but have a yucky accent.

Ya, right!

The way they pronounce some words with a long raaga is rivalled only by the sound they make when slurping rasam from their elbow to the fingertips
