FOUNDATION IN A RECENT ARTICLEENTITLED FDA'S PROPOSED TRANS

FAT BAN AN ATTACK ON FREEDOM.

THEY WRITE, QUOTE, A PERSONDOESN'T EAT A CORN CHIP WITH

TRANS FAT AND THEN DIE, THE DOSEMAKES THE POISON, EVEN IF THEY

EAT SO MUCH TRANS FAT THEY INFACT DO HAVE GREATER HEALTH

RISKS THIS IS THEIR PERSONAL ANDINFORMED CHOICE.

>> MCDONALD'S SAYS THE PATTY ISFORMED IN THE SHAPE OF

TRADITIONAL RIBS, THEY FLASHFREEZE THE MEAT BEFORE SENDING

IT OUT TO THE RESTAURANTS.

>> Stephen: OR MAYBE YOU ARETHE ONE THAT IS GROSS, MIKA,

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH AMCRIB JUST BECAUSE IT APPEARS TO

BE MADE OUT OF SICKLY ET.

>> I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A FIRMBELIEVER THAT THE BEST FOOD

RAISES MORE QUESTIONS THAN ITANSWERS.

IF ANYTHING, THIS PHOTO MAKES MEWANT THIS THING EVEN MORE.

BECAUSE IT ONLY ADDS TO THEGREAT AMERICAN MYSTERY THAT IS

THE MCRIB.

THE ELUSIVE MCRIB HAS APPEAREDAND DISAPPEARED ON MCMENUS WITH

LITTLE WARNING LIKE A MEATBRIGADOON.

MCRIB HUNTERS NEVER KNOW WHATBRIBS BRINGS IT OUT OF HIDING,

IS IT A SURPLUS OFSLAUGHTERHOUSE FLOOR SCRAPINGS,

AND ITS CONTENTS HAVE ALWAYSBEEN CLOAKED IN MYSTERY, THE

MCDONALD'S SITE LISTS 70INGREDIENTS NONE OF WHICH ARE

RIB, THOUGH IT DOES INCLUDEAZO-DICARBON-AMIDE, A FLOUR

BLEACHING AGENT USED IN YOGAMATS.
