Inside the McDonald’s McRib (Video)

Earlier this week I detailed in a report how McDonald’s McRib not only contains a host of GMO ingredients and toxic substances, but an ingredient used to make foamed plastic items that is actually banned in Australia, Europe, and Singapore. In fact, Singapore law dictates that even using the chemical (azodicarbonamide) as a food additive can lead to a $450,000 fine and up to 15 years imprisonment.

This article has now gone viral with five digit social media share counts across the board, bringing out McDonald’s fans and serious ‘McRib hunters’ to say that the McRib is actually completely healthy and that I should experience it for myself. Of course I already know how dangerous the McRib is to the human body by examining the ingredients that make up the franken sandwich, however I decided to go to McDonald’s myself and purchase a McRib. As the video details, I wanted to take a look inside the McRib to see what McRib hunters and McDonald’s fans were feeding themselves and their families.

Breast Implant Filler Chemical,

What I discovered was that the McRib, the ‘rib’ of which contains 70 different ingredients which include a harsh array of fillers and additives, was of course not fit for human consumption. Many health agencies even say that many ingredients used in McDonald’s food are not even fit for consumption within cat food. McDonald’s salads contain what’s known as propylene glycol, a chemical which is not even legal to use in cat food due to the lack of proven safety. Propylene glycol is also used ”as the killing and preserving agent in pitfall traps, usually used to capture ground beetles.”

McDonald’s meal items also contain ingredients used in things like breast implant filler liquid. As strange as it sounds, McDonald’s food also contains dimethylpolysiloxane, a type of silicone that’s used an an ‘anti-foaming’ agent for the McNuggets.

The same ingredient was ruled to be unsafe to use in breast implants as a filler due to health concerns.

Meanwhile, this food is sold at extremely low costs to families worldwide, many who are struggling financially and looking for a cheap meal. In the video I use humor to make a point, but the reason I created this video is to highlight how damaging this food is, especially to those who purchase it on a routine basis. If you are struggling financially, it is not impossible to procure high quality organic foods in bulk for super low prices. One couple even did so on $40 worth of food stamps per week in the documentary Food Stamped.

For tips on buying organic without spending too much, I encourage you to read 10 Healthy Yet Cheap Organic Foods and to explore your local Farmers Market in order to seek out inexpensive foods in your area. At the end of the day, it does not save to buy McDonald’s as multiple health consequences will follow. From an increase risk of cancer and heart disease to diabetes, eating McDonald’s is never worth the minor financial incentive.

    You ordered diet Coke.Diet drinks contains aspartame which in the end it will kill you.Google about “aspartame” and enlighten yourself.

  • mike

    You found all these bad ingredients by just running a fork through the sandwich?

  • jenna

    But, in the background of the video you have high fructose corn syrup laden donuts and those flavored coffees…check on those too. Actually, you'd be surprised that almost all food is laden with these things, HFCs and fillers.

    The sad thing about this Post is, that nobody who SHOULD read it, will so do anyway! WE are the ones, who should tell everybody we know! Just educate and pass it on! Where is the SHARE-Button???

  • Max

    Anonymous, LOL I think John Knight’s comment is sarcastic to Marion comment. He’s just pointing out the absurdity of Anthony typing out 50 countries instead of using the easy generic Europe. Yes now back to the Mc-Spam-wich

  • Frock

    Since when are animal organs inedible? I NEVER eat McDiabetes but this video left me cravin for a McRib

  • Marion

    Europe is not a country…

    • Jon Knight

      Yes Anthony Europe has 50 independent states, 27 of which are part of the geopolitical European Union. Now remember to type them all out in alphabetical order next time. Now back to the Mc Rib…

        John, no other defense other than to point out the geography error. You could skim through the report, this post, and all the other posts that support the fact that our food system is far from safe and the FDA is a load of crap and belittle us in our spelling. That ought to keep you busy making you feel smart.

  • Jon Knight

    Eeew! Anthony close that Mc Rib up in that Mc Donald’s provided sarcophagus container. Better get it out of your house fast Anthony before it transforms in to Mc-Mumm-Ra thee ever living! Blaaaah!You know that spam-wich will still look the same in 2000 years for now.

    Great Reporting Anthony Forwarding Video On!

  • Shay

    Anthony, show us the list of 70 chemicals in McRib, can you get inside the meat company that puts the beef parts together? Better also throw away that diet coke too!

  • StinkyDog This stuff is worse.

    • Will

      It seems you don't mind putting flour-bleaching agents, restructured "meat", genetically modified organisms, or bovine growth hormones into your body. Well, that's fine, keep posting that lame cop-out website about water, but the truth is, WATER IS SUPPOSED TO GO IN YOUR BODY, NOT PLASTICIZERS, EMBALMING FLUID, OR ANY OF THIS OTHER UNNATURAL SHIT. Don't be a tool, man, we should all know what's going into our bodies and I personally don't want a god damn industrial yoga-mat ingredient in my food.

    Can you also inform us about ingredients in Wendys, Arbys, Carls Jr. & Jack in the Box foods. I am sure millions of viewers would benefit (health wise) from the information you would provide about these places. Because now you have steered them away from McDonald's, they might be thinking it is OK to go to other fast foods places (which it is not of course).

  • Keenan

    My friend ate one of the rib shaped yoga matts, and ended up throwing it up later that night! That’s proof enough for me that whatevers in that franken-rib isn’t meant for your stomach.

    There are starving kids out there! Lol!! :P
