McDonald's Australia Has App to Show Diners Where Food Comes From
It's no secret that McNuggets only slightly resemble chicken (pink slime, anyone?). McDonald's down under launched an app that will allow customers to see where each ingredient of their meal came from. TrackMyMacca -- Macca is apparently what Aussies call the fast food chain -- will pinpoint which farm the meat came from, which bakery the bread came from, and the origins of just about every food item on their menu.
The International Business Times explained that the app will scan the image of your McMuffin or Big Mac and will use GPS and McDonald's free wi-fi to access the McDonalds' supply chain.
Apparently it will even tell you if your burger's made from horse meat. How comforting. Maybe this app will come to America, but until then, we can only assume the worst.
