Was Horsemeat or Human Meat Discovered at a McDonald’s?

Was Horsemeat or Human Meat Discovered at a McDonald’s?

A story circulating this week claims that McDonald’s was “exposed” for storing human meat and horsemeat in freezers in Oklahoma City. Is this true or false?

It’s false.

The article first surged in early 2014 and a variant continues to circulate in July. The report was first posted by the humorous website huzlers.com, which has been responsible for a string of outlandish rumors over the past few months. That website has since gone through a redesign, with much of its original content removed. You can still see a cached version of the article on the Internet Archive.

In the fake story, we read:

Meat inspectors reportedly found, what appeared to be, Human meat stored in the meat factory freezers of an Oklahoma City meat factory and human meat already in trucks right outside the factory ready to be shipped to McDonald’s restaurants. Health inspectors immediately demanded inspection in various McDonald’s meat factories across the country and horrifyingly found human meat in about 90% of the factories inspected thus far.

A video was included, which contains various reports and conspiracy theories about missing children. By including this video, the “humorous” article implies that missing children are ending up in McDonald’s meat.

About Huzler’s

Huzler’s originally surfaced in late 2013, publishing outlandish fake stories for apparent shock value, protected by a disclaimer that stated it was a combination of real news and satire. The website has since become a fake news generator, which allows readers to fill in details and generate a phony news story. It appears that much, if not all, of its original content has since been removed.

July 2014 Variant

The website Daily Buzz Live produced a variation of the story, including many of the same elements of the original Huzler’s article. This version claimed that human and horsemeat had been found at a McDonald’s in Oklahoma City.

Human Meat Found In McDonald’s Meat Factory. Previously we brought you a report that detailed disturbing audio admissions by a man that claimed McDonald’s uses human meat as a filler in their 100% beef hamburgers and the fact that McDonald’s has been accused of using worm meat fillers.  Now, inspectors have allegedly found human meat and horse meat in the freezer’s of an Oklahoma City McDonald’s meat factory. Human meat was also recovered in several trucks that were on their way to deliver the patties to the restaurants.

That website also admits that some of its content is fictitious. It should also be noted that neither versions of the above story included any corroboration. No news websites or broadcasts have reported on this story because it is not true.

Bottom Line

Human meat or horsemeat was not discovered in McDonald’s freezers in Oklahoma. This story comes from two “humorous” websites with no corroborating reports by any reputable news organizations.

    The founder of McDonald’s and his wife’s ashes are in a Mausoleum behind a glass case up here in Manchester New Hampshire…

    Ok. First of all please capitalize the first letter of a sentence. And ferries is spelled fairies, unless you mean water craft which conveys passengers across bodies of water, then it is ferries. One other thing the plural of Jew is Jews, so unless your name means Jews Ukk Dong, your might want to reconsider the spelling. As an insult, it is more indicative of you than of others.

    I am Jewish by birth and I’ve never harmed anyone, not a child, not an adult. You really ought to get your ducks in a row before maligning an entire faith.

      I don’t believe the statement included all Jews. It clearly states, “they are Jews but are with the synagogue of satan”.

      It’s no different than saying “the are Christians but are with the church of scientology”.

    We apologize that you did not understand our article. A satirical story used the video out of context. We offered no commentary on the video, other than a single description of its content. We made no claims regarding the veracity of the voice in the video.

  • waffles

    The article debunks a specific article in circulation. For that, no revision is necessary.

  • Tayo

    It is pathetic and disheartening that such a story could be churned out in the first place. What is so funny about our children and innocent people being churned into slime? What a sick, sick world is this? an what about the harm to the sensibilities of all? Insane story from a group of sick psychos, as far as I am concerned. And if it is true, they should just man up and admit it instead of insulting us with their idea of a joke!

  • Shaden

    So what was the name of this so called “humorous” website?

    • waffles

      “The article comes from the humorous website huzlers.com

  • waffles

    The purpose of this article is not to endorse McDonald’s or its products, but to point out that the specific post in question is fake.

    • Alex

      How are you pointing anything out with an opinion? I just come aross this “rumor” and am looking for facts supporting or denying it. Your article provides nither.

      Gotta side with Wayne here. Seeing Mc d’s is a masonic estblishment, i wouldnt put it past them either.

      • waffles

        The article in question is clearly labeled as satire, which we proved. You are perhaps seeking a larger discussion, which is not the point of this post.

      • 3rdeyewide

        Right Alex, good to see people thinking for themselves. If people took the time to research they would find this isn’t far off the rector when dealing with the elites.
