It seems that the China State Food and Drug Administration is needlessly targeting McDonald’s with allegations that the U.S. FDA-approved food additives used in Chicken McNuggets are a public health threat. The food additives under question are TBHQ, an antioxidant, and dimethylpolysiloxane, a widely used anti-foaming agent that prevents oil from becoming rancid.

“Food additives have been a target for decades as emerging threats to health, but they are carefully regulated in our country,” posits ACSH's Dr. Elizabeth Whelan.
