Have you ever wondered what is actually in McDonald’s food? Here’s your answer.

‘Pink slime’ in burgers? McDonald’s hires former MythBuster to find out.

Ever wonder what really goes into your Big Mac? McDonald’s hired former “MythBusters” host Grant Imahara to tackle the difficult questions consumers might have about the burgers the chain serves as part of a new campaign called “Our Food. Your Questions.”

The promotional campaign claims to uncover the truth about the burgers, Chicken McNuggets, McRib sandwiches and other food sold at McDonald’s. In a series of videos, Imahara answers questions like “Is McDonald’s beef real?” and “Why are your burger patties frozen?”

Imahara interviews various behind-the-scenes players, including Rickette Collins, McDonald’s director of strategic supply, about everything from preservatives, additives and hormones to the notorious “pink slime” — beef trimmings treated with ammonia — that consumers believe gets added to the meat.

“There’s no pink slime in any of our meat — not our beef, not our chicken, none of it,” Collins told Imahara in the video. “There’s zero pink slime in any of our products.”

“McDonald’s does not use lean beef trimmings treated with ammonia, what some individuals call ‘pink slime,’ in our burgers, and hasn’t since 2011,” McDonald’s website also stated. “Any recent reports that we do are false.”
