A while back, news broke that McDonald’s had allegedly been using a pink-colored slime as the basis for their Chicken McNuggets. Now McDonald’s has gone on record to deny this, saying that they use real chicken.
Recently, the fast food company began taking questions of customers and fans, then answering them through a video series titled “Our Food. Your Questions.” McDonald’s’ last video on how the McRib was made was met with mixed results. Like the previous installment, the latest episode apparently tries to put the “pink slime” rumors to rest.
Through a tour of McDonald’s chicken nugget factory, Grant Imahara of Mythbusters fame sees what actually comprises a Chicken McNugget. It appears to be neither pink, nor slimy. The TV personality, who has since signed on to host McDonald’s YouTube segment, asks the questions that have been plaguing the company.
Sure it’s a McDonald’s-produced video, but it’s not like the company has the time and resources to go out of their way to fake a chicken plant.
