McDonalds Shows How Their All Beef Patties Are Made in YouTube VideoTue, 14 Oct 2014 14:43:10 CDT
One of the largest customers in the world of the US Cattle Industry, McDonald's, is providing a video look into how their beef patties are made- from the beef cuts that are ground into hamburger and then pressed into the patties, frozen and then sent to the McDonald's locations around the country.
A video released on Monday by the fast-food giant features former MythBusters co-host Grant Imahara, who tours a Cargill facility in Fresno, Calif., that produces, freezes and ships McDonald's beef patties.
The video begins with Imahara inspecting cuts of meat on a conveyer belt headed toward a grinder. After the meat is ground, it is formed into beef patties and sent to a freezer before boxing and packaged for shipping.
This video is the launch of a new public relations campaign in the US created to clarify some of the mysteries surrounding McDonald's food sourcing and processing practices. On the McDonald's website, several questions are floating on the front page- including "Is 'pink slime' in a Chicken McNugget?"; "Why doesn't your food rot?"; "Are there worms in your beef?" and "Is the McRib made from real pork?"
Here's the first of what McDonald's has promised will be a series of videos to try to answer these and other questions.
