The company denied the presence of pink slime. However, there are other ingredients that are questionable. For instance, the burger buns contain a chemical additive called azodicarbonamide. This chemical is also contained in yoga mats.
The most shocking fact is that the McDonald’s company claims that the rubber in the buns in completely safe.
According to them, azodicarbonamide is used in many different ways such as in yoga mats. However, the use of this chemical in food is safe. They compare this use to the use of table salt and salt that is used to melt ice on the streets.
