I'm so disgusted that I can't even type right now.
In a nutshell, burger giants like McDonalds and Burger King are purchasing "beef" (extra cow parts and trimmings) to use for their hamburgers. Before they get shipped off, they're injected with ammonia. You know...that stuff used in household cleaning products - mainly glass and window cleaner.
Surely, the USDA is outraged and is going to put an end to this ASAP, right? On the contrary, my friend. Ammonia kills ecoli, so this makes the beef safer to eat (according to them).
When are we moving out of the country again?
