Man Eating McChicken Sandwich Can Tell McDonald's Switched Up Antibiotics

SEATTLE—Citing “subtle notes of ethambutol and clindamycin,” longtime McDonald’s customer Chris Hingle reported Thursday that he could discern from the taste of his McChicken sandwich a definite change in the antibiotics the fast food giant uses in its poultry. “This tastes way less ciprofloxacin-y than the McChicken did a year ago,” Hingle stated after two bites of the crispy dollar-menu item. “It’s good and all, but I really wish they’d bring back the old macrolide blend with the dirithromycin and troleandomycin. That’s the taste I grew up with.” Hingle later added that the Wendy’s restaurant chain “seriously needs to find a better thickening and gelling agent” if it hopes to sell him another Frosty.
