McDonalds Beef
MUST Read about McDonalds



I'm sure those of you who aren't in the cattle business don't understand the
issues here. But to those of us
whose living depends on the cattle market, selling cattle, raising the best
beef possible... This is frustrating.
This will keep us from ever stopping there again, even for a drink.
The original message is from the Texas Cattle Feeders Association
American cattle producers are very passionate about this.

McDonald's claims that there is not enough beef in the USA to support their
restaurants. Well, we know that is not so. Our opinion is they are looking
to save money at our expense.. The sad thing of it is that the people of the
USA are the ones who made McDonald's successful in the first place, but we
are not good enough to provide beef.

We personally are no longer eating at McDonald's, which I am sure does not
make an impact, but if we pass this around maybe there will be an impact

All America ns that sell cows at a livestock auction barn had to sign a paper
stating that we do NOT EVER feed our cows any part of another cow. South
Americans are not required to do this as of yet..

McDonald's has announced that they are going to start importing much of
their beef from South America . The problem is that South Americans aren't
under the same regulations as American beef producers, and the regulations
they have are loosely contr olled.

They can spray numerous pesticides on their pastures that have been banned
here at home because of residues found in the beef. They can also use
various hormones and growth regulators that we can't. The American public
needs to be aware of this problem and that they may be putting themselves at
risk from now on by eating at good old McDonald's..

American ranchers raise the highest quality beef in the world and this is
what Americans deserve to eat. Not beef from countries where quality is
loosely controlled. Therefore, I am proposing a boycott of
McDonald's until they see the light.

I'm sorry but everything is not always about the bottom line, and when it
comes to jeopardizing my family's health, that is where I draw the line.

I am sending this note to about thirty people. If each of you send it to at
least ten more (30 x 10 = 300) ..
and those 300 send it to at l east ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000) ... a nd so
on, by the time the message reaches the sixth generation of people, we will
have reached over THREE MILLION consumers!

I'll bet you didn't think you and I had that much potential, did you? Acting
together we can make a

difference. If this makes sense to you, please pass this message on..

Re: McDonalds Beef
[quote=firstdown;611881]Sounds like someone is ticked because McDonalds is buying beef from someone other than them. Its not like we don't have regulations here that the beef will have to meet before it makes it to market. He also says they made McDonalds? Hmmm maybe it was McDonalds that made them all their money and now they are mad at loosing the business. I'd perfer McDonald's to use US beef but if he is right and American beef is the best in the world they should have plenty of people wanting their product.[/quote]

Those regulations that bring in all of those top of the line products from China sure are great.

Re: McDonalds Beef
And honestly, we all know that McDonald's hasn't used actual beef of any kind for years. But whatever that grayish stuff they use actually is it's still the best cure for a hangover you can get.

Re: McDonalds Beef
Its VERY rare I eat fast food, and when I do, it's not Mickey D's (I'm kinda hooked on Five Guys). I'm on board, TTE. :P

In the last 5 years I think I have zero non-alcohol related fast food purchases.

No one cooks better than I do. If I wasn't so damn lazy; I'd cook every single meal.

God I love Snopes! At least three times a week the soccer moms in my office send out some BS email that I quickly research on Snopes to find out it is not true.

They actually get mad at me when I point out that the email is fake.

Re: McDonalds Beef
Someone e-mailed it to me. Whether or not it's true or not, I don't trust anything that comes from Latin America.

For some reason I can't eat fast food anymore anyway. Everytime I eat it my stomach get's messed up. Buger King, McDonalds, Sonics, Wendys, Taco Bell, KFC, etc. . . . . It all just screws with me. I think it is just nasty ass food.
