We all know that fast food is incredibly unhealthy, but what are some of the secrets from inside the industry that these chains dont want us to know? From interesting to disgusting and potentially deadly, check out these 25 things that the fast food corporations dont want you privy to.
25 Those grill marks on your burger arent real. They were put there by the factory.
24 If you want to make sure your french fries are fresh order them without salt. It will force them to cook a new batch. Then you can add your own salt.
23 Fast food chili is just made out of meat from old burgers.
22 Those salads youre ordering have nearly just as many calories as one Big Mac.

20 Actually, nearly 50% of restaurant fountain drink dispensers have fecal bacteria on them.
