McDonald’s Begins Closing Restaurants Across U.S. As Clean Food Movement Sweeps America

mcdonalds-signs-commercial-2-585x329

Finally our efforts to avoid processed foods and Frankenfoods are paying off. For the first time in decades McDonald’s is struggling and has to close more restaurants than it opens after worldwide drops in sales. According to anAssociated Press review of McDonald’s regulatory filings, this hasn’t happened since 1970.

Earlier this year the fast food giant announced the closing of 350 underperforming locations, but recently admitted it had to close an additional 350 restaurants in the U.S., Japan, and China. The closings include both franchises and company-owned locations.

Service with a smile and pain: McDonald’s McRib Sandwich a Franken Creation of GMOs, Toxic Ingredients, Banned Ingredients

mcdonaldsmcrib 265x167 McDonalds McRib Sandwich a Franken Creation of GMOs, Toxic Ingredients, Banned Ingredients

(NaturalSociety) -It’s ‘McRib season’, and thousands across the nation are scrambling to use online websites like the ‘McRib locator‘ to stuff the McDonald’s McRib sandwich down their throats. A sandwich that is not only full of genetically modified ingredients, a medley of toxic fillers and preservatives, but also some ingredients that are actually banned in other nations around the world. But honestly, are you surprised?

The McRib is the result of intensive marketing by McDonald’s. Utilizing the basics of supply and demand through creating scarcity over the McRib by only unleashing the culinary abomination for a fraction of the year that is only known once it is released, McDonald’s fans have been known to ‘hoard’ McRib sandwiches and eat them in extreme excess. It’s even a topic of the popular documentary Super Size Me, where filmmaker Morgan Spurlock (who gorges himself with McDonald’s for 30 days only to find serious health consequences) encounters ‘McRib hunters’ who actually travel the country eating McRib sandwiches.

McDonald’s even made McRib fans sign a petition to ‘save the McRib’ online, bringing out a conglomerate of fans to bring back their favorite franken sandwich.

What’s Inside a McDonald’s McRib Sandwich?

 

But what’s really inside the McRib specifically that makes it such a food abomination? Containing over 70 ingredients, the McRib is full of surprises — including ‘restructured meat’ technology that includes traditionally-discarded animal parts brought together to create a rib-like substance. Here’s some of the disturbing substances found within the McDonald’s McRib sandwich: 

A flour-bleaching agent used in yoga mats

Out of the 70 ingredients that make up the ‘pork’ sandwich, a little-known flour-bleaching agent known as azodicarbonamide lies among them. At first glance, this strange ingredient sounds concerning enough to look into. After a little research, you will find that even mainstream media outlets have generated content revealing how azodicarbonamide is actually used in the production of foamed plastics. Foamed plastics like yoga mats and more.

What’s more? In Australia and Europe, the use of azodicarbonamide as a food additive is banned. In Singapore specifically, use of this substance in food can result in a $450,000 fine and 15 years in jail. Thank you McDonald’s for supplying the nation with such healthful ingredients.

‘Restructured Meat’ from Pig Heart, Tongue, Stomach

McDonald’s McRib is famous in some circles for utilizing what’s known as ‘restructured meat’ technology. Since McDonald’s knows you’d never eat a pig heart, tongue, or stomach on your plate, they decided instead to grind up these ingredients and put them into the form of a typical rib. That way, consumers won’t know what they’re putting into their mouths. As the Chicago Mag reported, the innovator of this technology back in 1995 said it best:

“Most people would be extremely unhappy if they were served heart or tongue on a plate… but flaked into a restructured product it loses its identity.Such products as tripe, heart, and scalded stomachs…”

So in other words, it’s not actually a rib. Instead, it’s a combination of unwanted animal scraps processed down in major facilities and ‘restructured’ into the form of a rib. Then, 70 additives, chemicals, fillers, and GMO ingredients later, you have a ‘meat’ product that tastes like ribs.

McDonalds to stay open as the world ends!

1amcd

(Dirk Would?) In three days the world will end. But that won’t stop the biggest food chain on our doomed earth from opening their doors for business. This week, Don Thompson, CEO of Mickey D’s told Steve Shortcollar of Global Food Reporters, that indeed McDonalds has a marketing strategy for the world ending. But how will it be possible?

According to DefenseDroids.com McDonalds and Boeing partnered up this year in developing buildings that are catastrophic proof.  The outside walls are made of  asteroid and meteor resistant panels as well as fire-proof. Inside will be amassed of heavy metal objects, an asteroid fire-place, a comet shower fall, and much more!

The cost to cover 2012 of these stores was roughly $2 billion.  “With the money we save on paying our employees next to nothing and the help from our friends at Boeing… we were able to create a doomsday concept for the store and actually survive it,” Said Thompson.

So if you find yourself running for hopeless nothings as the end nearly swallows you up make sure you stop into McDonalds and grab a bite to eat. What’s on the menu?

For bargains make sure you check out the Mayan Dollar Menu. You can get everything from “Catastrophic Cajun Fries,” “Mass Destruction McDouble,” “Hurry Up And Run Hash Browns,” “Armageddon Angus Deluxe.”

According to the TLSI (Tastelikeshitinstitute) all of these items listed above will only contain 12 to 21 calories and combined altogether no more than 2012 total calories.

So if you get tired of running from asteroids, or eating canned beans be sure to stop into McDonalds ,as the world ends where you will be greeted with a terrifying smile! If you happen to survive Doomsday, and are alone for Christmas…. no worries, McDonalds will be opening on that day as well.

McDonald’s Wants To Keep Stores Open On Christmas, With No Overtime Pay For Employees

1agay2

(BoldProgressives) -Christmas is a time most Americans view as an opportunity to take a well-deserved holiday with their families and loved ones. But that’s apparently not how Ronald McDonald sees it.

Ad Age has obtained an internal memo from McDonald’s Chief Operating Officer Jim Johannesen where he advocates for keeping the chain open on Christmas Day. “Our largest holiday opportunity as a system is Christmas Day. Last year, [company-operated] restaurants that opened on Christmas averaged $5,500 in sales,” he writes in the memo.

McDonald’s spokeswoman Heather Oldani told Ad Age that she won’t comment on leaked documents but that “when our company-owned restaurants are open on the holidays, the staff voluntarily sign up to work. There is no regular overtime pay.”

This is, of course, a weak justification. If a store must be open on a holiday, employees will feel pressure to sign up to work. And if they are working on America’s most treasured holiday, they deserve overtime pay. McDonald’s should not treat its workforce this way. We’re not loving it.
