    Even though the eggs were reported to be okay, I'm glad McDonald's is sticking to their morals and kicking the supplier to the curb for the right reasons.

    McDonalds and morals in the same sentence? Well, hurrah for them. Now let's talk about their BEEF suppliers! DDD beef? Dead, dying, diseased? Yes!


    If any of you have never watched "Supersize Me" you should pick it up and watch it. Frightening!

    Haha every once in a while a person/company gets the chance to do something right and I'm glad they did.
    Hmmm the beef though.... Are you sure it's even real? [​IMG]

    [​IMG] That little bit of an interview makes me wanna slap them though ... Of course they are gonna bring in cameras and try to disprove what those undercover videos show... Those undercover videos are showing exactly what goes on in practically every single egg farm that operates in the US and other countries... [​IMG]

    Quote:Yup, after they have all employees working double time cleaning cages and removing any even possibly sick birds! Edited to add: Wonder what they would have said if they insisted on touring one of the other barns, NOT the "showplace"??

    Quote:Very ignorant statement. Also The "undercover" cameras show the worst possible, the "actual" cameras show the best possible.

    So when viewing the videos, try to imagine something inbetween [​IMG]
