Jamie Oliver Campaign makes McDonald’s change recipe

Chef Jamie Oliver won a battle against one of the largest fast food chains in the world. After Oliver showed how McDonald’s hamburgers are made, the franchise announced it will change its recipe.

According to Oliver, the fatty parts of beef are “washed” in ammonium hydroxide and used in the filling of the burger. Before this process, according to the presenter, the food is deemed unfit for human consumption.

According to the chef and presenter, Jamie Oliver, who has undertaken a war against the fast food industry: “Basically, we’re taking a product that would be sold in the cheapest way for dogs, and after this process, is being given to human beings.”

Besides the low quality of the meat, the ammonium hydroxide is harmful to health. Oliver calls it “the pink slime process.”

“Why would any sensible human being put meat filled with ammonia in the mouths of their children?” asked the chef, who wages a war against the fast food industry.

In one of his initiatives, Oliver demonstrates to children how nuggets are made. After selecting the best parts of the chicken, the remains (fat, skin and internal organs) are processed for these fried foods.

The company, Arcos Dorados, the franchise manager in Latin America, said such a procedure is not practiced in the region. The same applies to the product in Ireland and the UK, where they use meat from local suppliers.

In the United States, Burger King and Taco Bell had already abandoned the use of ammonia in their products. The food industry uses ammonium hydroxide as an anti-microbial agent in meats, which has allowed McDonald’s to use otherwise “inedible meat.”

Even more disturbing is that because ammonium hydroxide is considered part of the “component in a production procedure” by the USDA, consumers may not know when the chemical is in their food.


On the official website of McDonald’s, the company claims that their meat is cheap because, while serving many people every day, they are able to buy from their suppliers at a lower price, and offer the best quality products.

In addition, the franchise denied that the decision to change the recipe is related to Jamie Oliver’s campaign. On the site, McDonald’s has admitted that they have abandoned the beef filler from its burger patties.

Nothin' like going to the butcher, get some meat, grind it and then cook your own burgers.
More effort/time spent, but so worth it.
I am more of a BK fan than McDonalds, anyway, even though I haven't ate fast-food in over a year.

That's the way I do it too JP.
Very rarely we take the kid to McD's for a treat but after reading this ammonia stuff I'm quite put off. Sure it won't kill, but who knows what long-term effects there might be?

I also read on Oddee about it being the oldest food.
Something isn't quite right if after 14 years nothing ate that burger.. no worms ate the burger (ok perhaps it was kept sealed, I dunno...) but it didn't get discolored by bacterial decomposition, and not even a speckle of mould on the bun?

If nothing would eat it... should humans?

meh, there are worse ways to die. besides after nearly 3 decades of consumption it hasn't killed me yet, nor made me fat. I'm 6'2" and 175lbs.

granted I'm not an every meal McD's guy nor should anyone be. But really people like to make excuses for their own dumbshit behavior. "mcdonalds made me fat"
...right they told you to eat 15 burgers every meal...

"mcdonalds is bad for you" ...you really expect a quality product for 99cents? Try this out go to the store and buy the ingredients for 10 hamburgers, then make them , add in labor , franchise, and store fees and tell me if you can get anywhere near fucking 99 cents.

Pink slime process? Thats really gross!
Mom watches the butcher grind up the steaks when she gets hamburger. That way she knows they didnt put any filler stuff in it cuz we never eat hamburgers that have fillers. Any filler stuff should be on the hamburger not in it lol!
and thats just the condiments and veggies and cheese and stuff!
Yay real hamburgers!
