I’ve long thought fans of McDonald’s’ McRib to be a hardcore bunch. After all, as a closer look at the limited-edition supposedly Southern BBQ-inspired sandwich reveals to anyone brave enough to approach it, these so-called “ribs” are of the faux variety. Yup, not a real bone in sight; just meat freakishly molded to resemble them. But as a Business Insider story this week revealed the McRib’s “meat” itself is just as freakish. One choice morsel of information: the “restructured meat product” is actually made with tripe, scalded stomach, heart, and about seventy other mystery ingredients including, wait for it, a bleaching agent called azodicarbonimide, found in yoga mats. Ew. FIORELLA V.
