Jamie Oliver has won the revolution he started against McDonald's and has proven their burgers are "unfit for human consumption." The fast food will make changes to its recipe and drop "the pink slime process" according to Political Blind Spot.

“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,” is what Oliver has repeatedly said over the years with his so-called "food revolution" and the ammonium hydroxide and used in the filling of the burger.

Ammonium hydroxide is harmful to humans and can also be found in tobacco to enhance the flavor. After Oliver showed a group of kids how Chicken McNuggets are really made out of the left over parts of the chicken, McDonald's released a statement that assured the public their product was made with "100% USDA Grade A Chicken."

The statement also said, "A fractional amount of a legal preservative and a miniscule drop of an additive in vegetable oil is added to simply prevent foaming on the surface that naturally occurs in cooking. It’s that simple. Customers can be reassured that these are common and fully-approved ingredients that are completely safe and have been used for decades."

As for the discontinuation of the lean beef trimmings, this is what they said: "For a number of years prior to 2011, to assist with supply, McDonald’s USA used some lean beef trimmings treated with ammonia in our burgers. We were among other food retailers who used this safe product. At the beginning of 2011, we made a decision to stop using this ingredient. It has been out of the McDonald’s USA supply chain since August of 2011. We wanted to be consistent with our global beef supply chain and we’re always evolving our practices."

Check out the "pink slime process" of meat in the video below. Would you still see a Big Mac the same way?

In this video we see how chicken nuggets are made using a similar process. The astonishing part of this video is that at the end Oliver asks the kids if they would still eat it and they comply with a yes.
