A former employee of Wendy’s was fed up with her job and quit. Once she quit though, she didn’t at all try and spare people from the truth of what happens to fast food meat before it is eaten. The employee posted all over Facebook about the secret of Wendy’s chili meat, and customers are not happy.
Though we all know fast food isn’t always made from the best stuff, we try and forget it. Well, the employee brought to light the fact that the chili isn’t usually made from fresh ingredients. Wendy’s restaurants use leftover hamburger meat to make the chili.
Wendy’s has been known to have relatively fresh ingredients in comparison with other fast food chains and many across the world love the chain’s burgers, chicken and fries.
Some surprising information has turned some customers off from one menu item at Wendy’s. According to AWM, an employee has revealed that the meat in Wendy’s popular chili is not quite as fresh as some of the chain’s other items. The employee claims the ground beef used in the chili reportedly comes from leftover hamburgers.
The chain says that everything it does follows health and safety procedures and that the use of leftover hamburger meat in the chili is to cut down on food waste. Some customers still have their doubts about the practice.
AWM reports that after Wendy’s burgers are cooked, the patties are left on the grill until a burger order is placed. If the burgers aren’t used in a certain amount of time, they get “discarded” and placed into a container to be refrigerated before they are boiled down and chopped up to be used in a batch of chili.
While there is nothing technically wrong with the fast food chain using day-old meat for chili, some customers are bothered by the use of the leftover meat.
