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.

    Maybe McDonald’s is under the assumption that you are sheep and that’s why it’s okay to put you in hamburgers…

    The voice interview is on YouTube. Wickstrom has a lot of videos on youtube, you can compare the voices. I think you need to rewrite this article.

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

    Have you personally interviewed James P. Wickstrom who interviewed Rabbi (Abraham) Abe Finkelstein??

    Because that is a REAL interview. That is REALLY James P. Wickstrom’s voice. It is really Rabbi Abe Finkelstein’s voice. WHO is your source? Why didn’t you interview Wickstrom before YOU reported on this?

      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.

      Precisely! This is real…I have been researching since 2006. They DO sacrifice children and have been since the beginning of time. mcdonalds is one of the illuminati families. It is written. (Bible speaks of those who say they are Jews but are with the synagogue of satan) They can tell us what they do and people still don’t believe it (they know this) because it sounds so outlandish and sick. Our minds don’t operate like theirs because they are possessed/controlled by demonic forces. Truth is stranger then fiction. Yashua

        Oh, you’ve done research? Tell me, what did your DNA tests tell you? If you actually DID them, you would not only be able to figure out the truth, but you might ALSO be able to tell the families what happened to their children. Really, if you’ve done the scientific research, I’d be happy to see. If not, please shut up and stop spreading vicious rumors 😀 Thank you. Also, don’t spout any religious crap at me. Not ONLY am I religious, I’m not exactly vulnerable to that kind of abuse because I just don’t give a damn. Thank you.

      The comments are not all by the same person, and how are we fooling anyone by pointing out a satirical article is being passed off as real?

    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!

    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.

      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.

        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.

        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.
