According to a new report from the FDA, McDonald’s has been required to disclose an additive to their popular hot coffee drinks by posting signs in restaurants.
The sign, (posted below,) advises customers that to speed up heating time and temperature of McDonald’s hot coffee drinks, french fry grease, aka, pork lard, is added to the brewing process in order to “speed up” heating.
According to FDA anonymous witness transcripts: “We are constantly serving hot coffee to customers. Time is of the essence, so the Corporation found a way to heat up the coffee instantly – adding french fry grease to the coffees water during brewing time. That accounts for all the burns. It happens every day. They make every employee sign a nondisclosure agreement, but I was not about to lie to authorities!” h/t mostextremenews
