Hi my name is Tennille and I’m a Food Production Supervisor at Cargill and Spruce Grove, Alberta. I’m here today to answer a question from Helly D from Sainte-Laurent, Québec. Is the meat in your patties treated with ammonia?
Well, Helly, I know that there have been social media posts implying that McDonald’s Canada uses ammonia and I’m here to tell you that it’s not true. McDonald’s Canada doesn’t and has never used ammonia to treat their beef patties.
I want to show you how a beef patty is produced and some of the food safety and quality checks along the way. Let’s go see how a patty is made.
Some of the first food safety and quality checks include checking the surface of the meat and monitoring temperatures. This is the inspection process. Once we’ve completed the inspection it’s then ground. From here the ground beef then goes to the formers. As you can see, it’s a very simple process. The next step is to freeze the patties.
We’re here in the test kitchen. So let’s cook some patties. We use the grill that is the same as the gill used in McDonald’s restaurants. We check the temperature of the patties when they come off the ground. We then look at the patties to make sure that they are the right shape and appearance. And last, we taste the patties. It’s a good patty.
We send product daily to an independent laboratory for testing for E. coli. All product is held in our facility until we receive the required results. We then ship product to McDonald’s restaurants all across Canada.
