MACDONALD'S BY CHOICE BUT WE ALL PAY THE BILL

Zebadiah Anderson is seeing red after eating a Chicken McNugget which he claims contained bone shards that injured him to the point where he had to be taken by ambulance to a hospital!

The Illinois man is suing MacDonalds stating "The Subject Chicken McNugget constituted an unreasonably dangerous product when put to use for which it was intended, in that it could not be consumed with safety and without the risk of impaling and/or cutting the consumer in the mouth, tongue and/or throat, and potentially causing additional damage to the stomach, digestive track and intestines of the consumer, due to the sharp bone shards contained therein"


The giant international  fast food company has been sued for many things over the years from serving scolding hot coffee which seriously burned a women to ruining a singers voice.after she allegedly swallowed glass eating a chicken sandwich.  


There have been lots of nuisance suits over the years like the California man  who sued McDonald's for $1.5 million because  he only received one napkin with his order. 


With Billions and Billions served, there is no doubt that the company takes the safety of food served in my restaurants very seriously. 


So what exactly is a MacDonald's Chicken McNugget made of? The answer may surprise the conspiracy crowd. Apparently it's...chicken! 






McDonald's Canada has a  page of their site full of videos and frequently asked questions regarding how their projects are made!

At the risk of being labelled a food Nazi, I believe that  taxing fast food and similar food products would create additional incentive for consumers to eat healthier. There is no doubt  that fast food, based on fat, poor nutritional content, carries risks that can contribute to obesity, heart disease, diabetes  and other chronic health problems. 

People might  purchase  healthier food cheaper and realize it is better for them.

Yes, I know, it is matter of choice, but these choices, often motivated by the lack of low cost alternatives, are contributing to health care crisis that threatens to bankrupt our healthcare system.

Perhaps the proceeds from the sin-tax can go towards subsidizing the cost of doctors, nurses, dialysis, surgeries and supporting farmers to lower costs!
