    This information gets posted around the web or reported on a lot, and I've never once read it. Love me some McNuggets and rather not know.

    ignorance is bliss.

    McNuggets have always been awful, the real travesty is Burger King got rid of Chicken Tenders in favor of a more McNugget like product.

    We need to thank Mcdonalds for using every part of the chicken instead of wasting it. Good job Micky d's

    they tested two nuggets from select restaurants. Not exactly the best research.

    Though I'm not really surprised or concerned. Muscle tissue (you know, meat), skin, and blood vessels are all things you'd find on whole cuts of chicken too.

    I feel safer with Iowa having a population of 60 million chickens.

    Meh, as long as it tastes good and isn't toxic I will still eat it.

    I guess I'll never understand these kind of reports. It's McDonald's, not Ruth's Chris steak house. You are getting a box of fried chicken parts for $5, what do you expect? What does anyone expect? It's real food, it's all chicken, so what's the fuss? The fact that people still get in an uproar over this completely blows me away. (I'm speaking more about our local news media who was all over this this morning more than anyone else here.) "Your government is a ball of **** flying towards a fan, don't mind that though, there are chicken "parts" in McNuggets!"

    "PEOPLE, MCDONALD'S IS NOT GOOD FOR YOU!" If you like it, go ahead and eat it, but don't act like you just found out your spinach salad was a deep fried alfredo ball."

    Call Alfredo? Seriously though, it was just the most fatty carb laden thing I could think of.

    Which state fair will offer this first, Minnesota or Texas? I bet Texas.

    Im sure a sample size of two McNuggets made it really reliable too...

    Not that McNuggets aren't gross.

    Since deep fried macaroni and cheese already exists, it's hard to believe it hasn't been tried. Although Shrimp Fettuccine Alredo on a stick sounds like a winner. 3 large shrimp on a stick, wrap those in Fettuccine noodles, dip it in Alfredo sace, then some crumbs to bind it and FRY! I think I have dinner for tonight!!

    I don't think I've actually ever had a McNugget. Chicken nuggets, yes, but not the infamous McNugget.

    They are like a chicken nugget from anywhere else, but fortified with heartburn, mud butt, and do-do smells worse.

    The 6 piece must have been too pricey for them.
