McDonald's Reveals Chicken McNuggets Are Not Made of Pink Goop

There are a lot of rumors about what exactly goes into McDonald's Chicken McNuggets -- especially with the infamous 'pink goop' photo constantly popping up on the Internet. Now, McDonald's Canada fast is setting the record straight in a new commercial.

McDonald's Canada has a program where employees answer questions about the food. It was only a matter of time before someone asked about that nasty goop.

In response, Nicolette Stefou, Supply Chain Manager for McDonald's Canada, spoke out. 'We don't know what it is or where it came from, but it has nothing to do with our McNuggets,' she said.

To combat skeptics, Stefou filmed the entire process during a tour through the area where McNuggets are made.

The video shows workers separating chicken breasts from full chickens. Those breasts are then put in a grinder, and the ground meat is blended with seasonings and a proportional amount of skin for flavor and binding.

The end result isn't exactly appetizing, but at least we know what's actually in McNuggets now ... and it's a whole lot better than that pink goop.

Oh, and did you know that there are four specific McNugget shapes? There's the bow, the ball, the boot and the bowtie.
