    lol. Where did I say this was a deliberate attempt to sell human meat?

    You didn't but that's what the 'really scary' headline is alluding to. These scare stories come out over here all the time but the reality is that if you DNA test enough of any food product you'll find stuff that shouldn't be in some of it.

    By the fact that they are burgers, they are munch more susceptible to contamination than a cut of meat. But talking about contaminated meat deflects from all the other issues surrounding mcds.

    They are more likely yes, but cuts of meat can also pick up small bits of detritus in slaughter, preparation, transport, packaging etc.

    Some of these 'horror food' headlines are more about making people aware that foreign particles will get in. That old story of 'you will swallow x number of spiders' is more likely bits of insect in salad, meat and various food stuffs. The % is almost certain to never even be noticed or have any ill effect.

    I used to work in a slaughterhouse and did a fair bit of butchery. It was very clean and sterile but taking into account all of the factors there will always be some level of cross contamination.

    Interesting point regards McDonald's came up a while back. I was travelling with someone quite senior at the Red Cross and we had time to kill at Geneva Airport so decided to get food.

    She suggested McDonald's which was a bit :confused: to me. She explained that when travelling a lot or starting long flights she only eats McDonald's. The logic was that you can get food poisoning from a supermarket salad but never from McDonald's.

    Also worth noting that Switzerland is the most expensive McDs (I think) on the planet.

    that's just so wrong is as much as there are generally a few other places in most airports where you can buy hot, freshly cooked food.
    I would sooner go without than to frequent a macs :mad:

    She's spot on. Unwashed or poorly washed salad is a leading cause of food poisoning.

    So it's sort of a Subway Mexicana?

    Yep. I like their black bean tacos with corn salsa and avocado. However, we have a mexican vegan place that does an excellent roasted sweet potato taco that beats Chipotle all to hell.

    Had a QPWC and medium fries earlier. Did not quite hit the spot so got a double cheeseburger and large fries as a chaser.

    I had one of the new Jamaican Chicken numbers earlier.

    Very nice.

    It was the correct amount of food.

    Only £3.98 the lot with vouchers so not a bad #haggle

    I did consider that as it looked decent. Just so tight fisted that the vouchers swung my decision to the old favourites.

    Luckily we have slightly higher food standards in the UK. For now anyway..

    U.S. food poisoning rates are pretty scary compared to ours (at time of going to press).

    My mother almost died from a camplobacter infection. Her kidneys shut down and she was in the hospital over a week.

    Whacamole salad: Avocados, lime juice, cilantro, and garlic.
    From American fast food?

    Yes because Jamaicans are known only for smoking cannabis and not for their widely popular jerk chicken seasoning. :rolleyes:

    Holy guacamole, yes!

    We think it came from some chicken tacos served at a diner. It occurs most on undercooked chicken.

    Hope she’s ok now. That’s a nasty one to get.

    She's quite elderly. She had some lasting kidney damage and it took her a long time to be herself again, but she's ok now. For a while, I wondered if her time living in her own home had come to and end. She's almost 84 and still lives in the house she was born in. I doubt if I will manage that well. :)

    I've never even heard of this "widely popular jerk chicken seasoning" so I cannot judge just how widely popular it might be. :( As far as I know, the only Jamaican anything in town is this "Truth Health Spirit" juice bar just up the street.
