Do you eat fast food? Have you ever wondered what's in it? Or maybe the real question is, do you really want to know?
According to a recent Reddit interview with a McDonald's employee and a conversation thread on their website that followed, there are a few things you should stay away from. Here are a few highlights Reddit shared:
Chicken nuggets: Varies depending on the restaurant, but one reader commented, "When I worked at McDonald's, I accidentally left a whole bag of about 100 chicken nuggets out on a counter for way too long. They melted. Into a pool of liquid. I never understood why. But they were completely indiscernible as being the nuggets i once knew."
Wendy's Chili: According to a comment on the post by Cozmo23, "The meat comes from hamburger patties that sat on the grill too long to serve to customers. They take them and put them in a bin and then throw them in the fridge. When the chili is made they take it out, boil it, chop it up and dump them in the chili."
Fast food ice: The survey says it's tough to keep the machines clean and mold-free.
Grilled chicken: Reddit says it may be the healthiest meat in the restaurant, but one fast-food employee told them they use "three squirts of liquid margarine on the bottom of it" to keep it from sticking to the grill.
Complimentary breadsticks: The AskReddit post reads, "Some of you have talked about re-serving the "seemingly untouched or whole" breadsticks at Italian restaurants from previous customer's plates. In other cases, they're not re-plated but broken down to be used in different food items."
