Are you sure you want to know what the mcRib is made of???

At face value, the sandwich contains just pork, onions, and pickle slices slathered in barbecue sauce and laid out on a bun. But the truth is, there are roughly 70 ingredients. The bun alone contains 34, says TIME's Melnick. In addition to chemicals like ammonium sulfate and polysorbate 80, the most egregious may be azodicarbonamide — "a flour-bleaching agent most commonly used in the manufactur[ing] of foamed plastics like gym mats the and soles of shoes." According to McDonald's own ingredient list, the bun also includes calcium sulfate and ethoxylated mono- and diglycerides, among other chemicals.

Ooof. What's the meat made of?
Pig innards and plenty of salt. Typically, "restructured meat product" includes pig bits like tripe, heart, and scalded stomach, says Whet Moser at Chicago Magazine, citing a 1995 article by Robert Mandigo, a professor at the University of Nebraska. These parts are cooked and blended with salt and water to extract salt-soluble proteins, which act as a "glue" that helps bind the reshaped meat together.

Halloween is Right around the corner.. .

Date: 10/30/2011 6:49:00 AM  From Authorid: 5940    Would'nt it be easier just to put BBQ sauce on a pork chop and slap some wonder bread around it?  
Date: 10/30/2011 7:10:00 AM  From Authorid: 64365    I already knew...that's why I don't eat it...or any other McDonald's menu items. My last hamburger from there made me sick.  
Date: 10/30/2011 7:26:00 AM  From Authorid: 15157    I eat Menudo so its not far from the ingrediants you have mentioned.
...its a pretty tastey sandwich...if it weren't for all that cholestroal it would actually be good for you. DROOLS
Date: 10/30/2011 7:33:00 AM  From Authorid: 15157    Basic ingred. In Menudo is Tripe and hommany ....the pigfeet are optional.
To be cooked over night...but we always boil the cut up bite size tripe 3 times before adding the spices ...hommany and pigs feet.
Date: 10/30/2011 7:57:00 AM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 15228    Kiki, we use to go to a friends house who made tripe. It stunk sooo bad while it was cooking I could never bring myself to try it, but my 2 daughters and husband use to douse it in hot sauce and slurp it down!  
Date: 10/30/2011 8:02:00 AM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 15228    I use to love chorizo until I made the mistake of reading the ingredients. Pork adenoids, lymph nodes and salivary glands.  
Date: 10/30/2011 8:19:00 AM  From Authorid: 61966    It's not the "organ" meat part that bothers me. It's all the sodium, preservatives and HOW they make the actual product. I'll just stay away from fast food..it's not good for you to eat it everyday. Believe me! I ate Mcdonalds every single night after work for a solid year. I lost 8 lbs in the first week of just not eating mcdonalds...I'm sure a lot of that was water weight from the sodium they put into that stuff!  
Date: 10/30/2011 8:22:00 AM  From Authorid: 64414    WOW...if ever there was a post I wish I hadn't read....Kelly, it is this one!!! LOL  
Date: 10/30/2011 8:30:00 AM  From Authorid: 19092    umm, umm, good...  
Date: 10/30/2011 8:56:00 AM  From Authorid: 3263    barf.  
Date: 10/30/2011 8:57:00 AM  From Authorid: 5252    never tried it....i like the cookies they have thats about it.  
Date: 10/30/2011 4:30:00 PM  From Authorid: 42945    I've never tried it and after reading this never will...yuck! the thought of all those preservatives along with the rest turns my stomach..  
Date: 10/30/2011 6:05:00 PM  From Authorid: 62956    Every time this McRib comes out, I have to get it at least once. It's not a bad particle board sandwich. Just about everything has gross little nasty things on it and sometimes in it.
Date: 10/30/2011 6:26:00 PM  From Authorid: 5301    
...yeah, they are pretty disgusting.
The BBQ sauce isn't even good.
Date: 10/30/2011 8:30:00 PM  From Authorid: 28848    Typically, "restructured meat product" includes pig bits like tripe, heart, and scalded stomach,---That's most processed meats. I've cut down on a lot of my intake of processed meats. I had sausage recently and I will occassionally have a hotdog, but not nearly as often as I used to. It is true, the less processing that goes into food, the healthier the food.  
Date: 10/31/2011 1:29:00 AM  From Authorid: 4995    OMGOODNESS!!! I have heard how chicken mcnugget meat is washed in AMONIA before being processed further but this takes the cake. YUCK!!!!! G.  
Date: 10/31/2011 6:13:00 AM  From Authorid: 16164    anything processed has salt...tons...may as well toss the salt shaker and a future dr. bill in the bun and skip the meat...well...just skip the bun, thatll get u faster...eat the shaker  
Date: 10/31/2011 10:53:00 AM  From Authorid: 15157    Its delish...and yall know it ...  
Date: 10/31/2011 2:19:00 PM  From Authorid: 48250    LOL @ KiKi....KC....ReeRun!! Look at those purdy strawberry shakes in the ads on Kelly's post.,or that delicious- looking soup.... now those do look tasty, Mmm....sheesh I'm so glad I've never eaten a mcrib sandwich from Mickey D's.... *wipes brow* takes a quick peek in the hall mirror...just checkin' to see if I was slightly green, yet ....T/C
