The article details 35 ingredients that are present in a single chicken nugget from McDonald’s, including dimethylpolysiloxane, an anti-foaming agent used in Silly Putty and cosmetics, and…
…a heaping spoonful of tertiary butylhydroquinone (TBHQ), which is a chemical preservative and a form of butane (AKA lighter fluid). One gram of TBHQ can cause “nausea, vomiting, ringing in the ears, delirium, a sense of suffocation, and collapse,” according to A Consumer’s Dictionary of Food Additives. Five grams of TBHQ can kill you.

The New York Post just ran an article named “How Portland has us Licked!” The author is an eating machine, covering Whiffies Fried Pies, Perierra Creperie, Salt & Straw, What’s the Scoop, Tasty n Sons, and Lincoln.
Finally, I’ve been covering dramatic readings of Yelp reviews. These may be the best yet.
