Doctors Group Wins Partial Victory against Grilled Chicken Restaurants

I tend to think that even though people are being alerted, they still won’t heed the warning…

Seeking notification that would warn customers of popular restaurant chains about the dangers of eating grilled chicken, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine won a partial victory in a California appellate court. The group filed a lawsuit seeking to force McDonald’s, TGIFriday’s, Outback Steakhouse, Chili’s, Chick-Fil-A and Applebee’s to post the following notice: “Warning: Well-cooked chicken, including the chicken served in this restaurant, contains chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer.”

The physicians claim grilled chicken may contain chemicals, including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and PhIP, which can cause cancer and birth defects.  They lost their first trial in district court after a judge accepted the restaurants’ argument that the warning was pre-empted by the federal Poultry Products Inspection Act because it conflicted with federal policy.  (Huh?  What kinda’ shit is that?!) But the Los Angeles-based Second District Court of Appeal ruled the proposed warning did not conflict with federal policy concerning chicken, although the appellate court stopped short of endorsing the specific warning.  Source:  Check out this clip from the documentary; “Food, Inc”:
This is sort of old news to me because I’ve been a vegetarian for years and recently became a vegan.  Clearly, no one should be eating at McDevils McDonald’s– that’s obvious.  I mean, even Stevie Wonder can see that! But I’m curious, if you read “this food can cause cancer and birth defects“… would you still eat it?  Any takers?…

    Now what this I hear we can’t have no chickens! It’s a d@mned shame that in America we have become food slaves to commercial conglomerates who poison our foods just to save a few million dollars a year when they bring in billions. D@mned shame.

    • Well thanks, man! 😉

      Yeah, the chicken thing is disgusting, isn’t it? And I don’t think they they’re trying to save money, I think they making huge profits by giving us fake/tainted meat. But seriously, who in their right mind would eat a chicken “McNUGGET“? Where does the “nugget” of chicken come from?! hahaha
