Someone compared the Chicken McNuggets produced by domestic McDonald's to those sold on Knifecrime Island, and congratulations, America: "McNuggets made in U.S. stores are higher in fat and calories and contain the chemicals tBHQ, tertiary butylhydroquinone, a petroleum-based product, and dimethylpolysiloxane, an anti-foaming agent used in cosmetics and even Silly Putty." But don't worry: "The use of tertiary butylhydroquinone in the fast-food chain's fried chicken pieces meets Chinese food safety standards, McDonald's unit in the nation said in an e-mailed statement." Even though the chemical is toxic to "some extent," according to a Chinese nutritionist! Get me a 20-piece, please?
