It’s actually a mixture of bones and chicken carcass, chicken parts that you won’t normally eat.Other ingredients include: pink slime and small amounts of petroleum.
Silly Putty Plastic
Dimethylpolysiloxane – a form of silicone used in the stretchy toy, also found in fryer oil to keep it from foaming. You can find it in McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish and fries … or almost anything deep-fried in a fast food restaurant.

Tertiary butylhydroquinone (TBHQ) – made from compounds derived from petroleum, can be found in processed food.McDonald’suses it in 18 products ranging from its Fruit and Walnut Salad to Griddle Cakes to McNuggets.
