I ‘stole’ this chart from Everything You Need to Know About Fast Food. Even though you can’t (or at least *I* can’t!) read the fine print at the bottom of that poster, I think the rest of it speaks for itself. One of the things I noticed in particular from this is something I’d heard before, that fast food burgers (as well as ground beef from the majority of grocery stores) is made up of bits of hundreds of cows, which greatly increases the possibility of contamination. Only one diseased animal in the mix can contaminate untold numbers of hamburger patties!
Happy to say the burgers at our house are made from one animal. Even when we’re purchasing burger patties or ground beef, we buy it from a local butcher shop where the same thing holds true, and at a price similar to the grocery store.
How about you? Anything on this chart jump out at you?
the hundreds of cows in one burger thing made me throw up a little in my mouth. Good thing A&W isn’t on the list because they are perfect (hums with fingers in her ears)
Using the handy zoom key, I zoomed in on that small print at the bottom. It was blurry, but I was able to tell that its a list of the sources for their data.
Ah, thanks for the closer look!
I don’t eat fast food as often as I used to (and I’m not a big proponent of any of the “restaurants” on that list). I’m working to get hubby to buy beef locally, which would eliminate the “hundreds of animals” problem.
No wonder Wendy’s makes me sick. Hubby never believed me. 😛
