As Marc said, it was Burger King to the rescue! And how sweet it was that they brought back that Whopper special by popular demand for another weekend. Perhaps they knew the world was supposedly going to end Friday?
I haven't gobbled one up since hearing about all the speculation of all the ingredients used although the temptation still remains to a certain point. However I did find this in wiki.
"It has been inaccurately reported that the patty also includes restructured meat products such as tripe, heart, and stomach. Per the specifications of McDonald's supply chain, offal, which includes innards, organs and other non-primal cuts of pork, are not allowed in the McRib".
Nonetheless, here's why I stopped eating the mcrib:
You know that old anti-smoking joke that kissing a smoker is like licking an ashtray?
It turns out, wrapping your lips around a McDonald’s McRib is somewhat like eating a yoga mat.
Time Magazine’s Healthland blog reports that among the McRib’s 70 ingredients are azodicarbonamide, ammonium sulfate and polysorbate 80. Azodicarbonamide, “a flour-bleaching agent that is most commonly used in the manufacture of foamed plastics like in gym mats and the soles of shoes, is found in the McRib bun.”
The blog says azodicarbonamide is banned in Europe and Australia as a food additive.
