McDonald‘s just announced it will be the first fast food restaurant in the United States to add lab-grown meat to its menu. Following the success of Sergey Brin’s lab-grown burger experiment in London last year, McDonald’s says they will ‘grow’ their own chicken McNuggets in special laboratories across New Jersey. The move is expected to reduce the number of real chickens needed to supply the company’s 35,000 outlets across the globe.
Don Thompson, president and chief executive officer of McDonald’s, cited environmental concerns behind the company’s pledge to add lab-grown chicken McNuggets to their menu.
“With climate change raging out of control, we decided that it doesn’t make sense to use water and feed to keep real chickens alive anymore,” Thompson said. “Plus, animal rights activists have been on our case for a long time about how chickens are treated. This should put their concerns to rest.”
