No mention of the preservatives in the buns.

Yeah that was crazy. It was interesting while I was half watching, and then I started to really watch and it offended my sensibilities.
I felt cheap and 'sold to'.

I didn't watch it, glad I didn't bother since it seems it was just propaganda. Their ketchup is made in china now, big no no for me. I tryt o avoid food made in china as best I can.

I saw paid by Macca's and switched it off. I'm not worried about cleanliness, in Australia a certain level of cleanliness must be maintained by any food service outlet in order to stay in operation and I have no doubt that there is actual chicken, beef, lettuce whatever in the food.
What concerns me is the processing of the food, the additives and the cooking methods and the impact on our health. MacDonald's is food devoid of all nutrient value, it's empty calories. It's no good.

Elleandsam I would agree with you but have seen so many food businesses not complying with set standards that I actually think it is too easy to get away with poor hygiene and food storage.
Two weeks ago. Was at a food court in a large, busy shopping centre. I noticed the kebab shop had a large stainless steel tub of shaved kebab meat sitting on a rubbish chute, I assumed it was to be thrown out. Later I saw the woman transfer the meat to a plastic container and reheat it to make the kebabs the whole time we sat out in front of the shop they had a large trolley of fresh made pides sitting at room temp. They have been fined by the health authorities for storing food on the bin before. Obviously a 200 dollar fine or whatever it was meant nothing to them.
The place actually looked clean, fresh and busy too.
While pregnant I would probably prefer a McDonald's as at least they have strict control.

Well I was impressed. At least I won't feel 'as' bad giving it to my kids as a sometimes food. Yes the sauces and stuff would have preservatives in it....so are the sauces from the supermarkets.
I like how the beef is real australian beef and chicken is real chicken (not blended up scraps as some would have you believe). Yes there'd be preservatives in the buns (same as at the supermarkets) or the buns would go stale quickly duh and who wants to eat stale buns.
I'm glad they're trying to make things better all the time, cutting half the sugar content in the buns as they use to have making them have LESS SUGAR than those bought at the stores.
Wasn't impressed with the sugar/water wash they put on the fries but felt better that they said that it would be less than 1% sugar by the time we got them.
I knew it wasn't AS bad as people say. Definetly won't go eating it everyday or anything as it's all jam packed with calories but glad that the ingredients are all fresh quality ingredients and australian grown - awesome!
Made me hungry for maccas though which is not good when you're trying to lose weight and you haven't had it for a few months LOL

I wouldn't believe half of it, and the way they kept those chickens was really heartbreaking. Poor little things will never see the sun
