Where's the Beef?

A documentary about the fast food industry made some revelations that were news to me.
First of all, the original Ronald McDonald, Geoffrey Juliano, quit when he was asked to open the first "Ronald McDonald House". Exploiting terminally ill children, he explained, was too much.

Secondly, after a child died of food poisoning, investigators found that the bacteria contracted came from tiny bits of cattle faeces in McDonald's hamburger meat. Rather than remove the faeces, McDonald's now bakes its burgers at a high enough temperature to kill the bacteria.

Well, in my opinion, that's all a load of bullshit.
