From anti-freeze garnished salad to anal juice milk shakes, we look at 8 disturbing fast food facts.

  1. Eat Fresh, Eat Rubber

  • If most of the world banned the use of an ingredient, you’d think the FDA would follow suit.
  • The chemical azodicarbonamide, is used to make yoga mats and those sexy flip flops you love so much. It’s mostly used industrially but it’s also used to make those fast food buns extra fluffy. In large amounts it’s been known to cause respiratory problems, skin irritations, allergies and asthma. Then when it’s baked into your food it becomes a carcinogen. ABA is already banned in Europe and Australia, but America is still pro-chemical crapola.
  • Subway was recently singled out in an online campaign because of their whole ‘eat fresh’ vibe. Subway have insisted that they’re going to stop using ABA but don’t worry you won’t be deprived of your yoga mat goodness, this shit is still being used at Mickey D’s, Jack in the box, Wendy’s, and a slew of others. In short; cheap shit in bread be nasty.
  1. Maggot-licious


  • When asked you the ideal number of maggots in your meat ball sub, you’d probably say zero.
  • But as it turns out the FDA really haven’t set the bar very high for fast food retailers. These guys are totally chill with your tomato-based sauces containing maggots and fly eggs, yum!
  • They’ve even accepted sauces which contain 30 or more fly eggs and 1 or more maggots per 100 grams of sauce. But 31 eggs is the limit, any more than that a serve is crossing a damn line.
  1. Beaver Butt Juice


  • Do you ever notice on an ingredient labels say stuff like, “natural flavouring”? Sounds pretty harmless right? WRONG, WE WERE ALL WRONG. *Ah hem* Sorry about that…
  • One of these natural flavourings is called castoreum that’s in a heap of stuff; your milk shakes, thick shakes, ice creams. The harmless sounding stuff actually comes from the anal secretions of beavers. Yeah, let that sink in. Both male and female beavers secrete this funky tasting spunk to mark their territory. It’s used all the time as a cheaper alternative to vanilla.
  • So sure, anal juice might TECHNICALLY be natural, it comes from nature but for god sake bear urine comes from nature and I’d sure as shit like to know if it’s in my fuckin meal.
  1. Chicken nugget, old flame


  • Ahhh chicken nuggets, you make my heart beat faster. I love it’s love and not a coronary.
  • Before 2003, Mickey D’s nuggets used to be made with what they call ‘mechanically reclaimed meat’ – which has a disturbing ring to it. That’s where they would throw in all the gross parts of the chicken, put it through a big sieve and killing the bacteria by soaking it in ammonia. Then re-flavour the crap out of it with salt and sugar until it tasted edible. Well you got my mouth watering just thinking about it.
  • But then McDonalds got go bitch-slapped by the release of ‘Super-Size Me’ so they switched to white meat for the nuggets. Yay for you guys…except the new recipe still has some questionable shit in it; butane for one, which is a preservative and a kind of lighter fluid. Then there’s something called dimethylpolysiloxane: it’s used to make silly putty and household silicones.
