Is your #McDonalds meat washed with Poisson in South Africa #food #za ?

McDonalds has finally agreed to stop the use of ammonia to wash their meat in the USA – but in South Africa does this happen still? 

According to Oliver, fatty parts of beef are“washed” in ammonium hydroxide and used in the filling of a McDonald’s burger. Ammonium hydroxide is used as an anti-microbial agent in meats, which has allowed McDonald’s to use otherwise “inedible meat.” “Basically, we’re taking a product that would be sold in the cheapest way for dogs, and after this process, is being given to human beings, ” said Jamie Oliver, who has undertaken a war against the fast food industry. 

The US National Library of Medicine lists Ammonium Hydroxide in the Hazardous Substance Data Base as: POISIONOUS.

South African consumers may not even know if this chemical is in their food.“Why would any sensible human being put meat filled with ammonia in the mouths of their children?” asked Oliver who has also demonstrated to children how nuggets are made with the chicken fat, skin and internal organ remains being processed for these fried foods.
