CHICAGO - Not long after disclosing that its french fries contain more trans fat than thought, McDonald's Corp. said Monday that wheat and dairy ingredients are used to flavor the popular menu item an acknowledgment it had not previously made.



The presence of those substances can cause allergic or other medical reactions in food-sensitive consumers.



McDonald's had said until recently that its fries were free of gluten and milk or wheat allergens and safe to eat for those with dietary issues related to the consumption of dairy items. But the fast-food company quietly added "Contains wheat and milk ingredients" this month to the french fries listing on its Web site.

Reminds me of the old political joke:



Q: How can you tell when (McDonalds) is lying?

A: Their lips are moving.



And yet, their stock continues to rise. Stupid stupid people we Americans are.

I think I used an apostrophe last time. Here is the original post about the lying rat-*******s.
