Having worked at McDonalds, I don't think their food practices are at all questionable. They're really very strict.
TBH, I think they get a bad wrap, but I think they're probably better than a lot of the alternative fast food places as a result... because they cop so much they need to make sure they're doing things properly.

I agree.I worked there for almost 8 years and they are really strict on cleanliness and food control.

I dunno... They do make a HUUUGGEE deal about their ingredients being real/fresh etc... Could they REALLY say this if they were using chemicals and rubbish? Surely there would be whistle blowers lining up to talk?
And I have been thinking this, that if maccas are paying, they have the final say, but it *did* say it was independently produced?
I don't know. I'm not a big conspiracy theory person, but it doesn't matter for me really, I don't eat there often, and when I do, I'm under no false impressions that I am making healthy food choices.
But by golly I love me a quarter pounder!

Watching it now, it's such a fluff peace!
There was an article about it in the SMH it said it was funded by McDonalds and given to channel 7 as a "free" advertorial not documentary
The good thing is they do buy fresh Australian produce, they just muck it up with all the salt , phosphates and preservatives they add with the buns/cheese/sauce/breadcrumbs etc

Oh this show is such a bull****! First they take the guy from 60 mins to make it all appear investigative and getting to the truth and then this one lady asks 'what does natural flavour mean? Does it come from a natural product??' and the guy just laughs it away, cause it doesnt and they change the topic and never answered the question! I'll stick with the better one 'Supersize me!'! And I dont think it is about how clean they are etc, they are def the cleanest of all fast foods, I think it is more about really how much crap is in the food, and thats every take away, kebab, etc etc. Like they showed, why sugar coat the fries? Cause someone somewhere found out that this is the colour people like their fries to be...

I noticed they didn't analyze any of the mayonnaise or sauces. I bet there is a heap of additives in those!

You can check all the ingredients /nutrition info on their website- the additives/preservatives ( especially in the sauces/bread/cheese etc) is crazy plus there is canola oil and soy in most of their stuff ( legally they don't have to say if it's GMO but odds are it is as over 95% in this country are)
