If it looks like an egg and tastes like an egg…Is it really an egg?
To crack this mystery for customers, McDonald's enlisted former MythBusters star Grant Imahara to shed some light on its egg production process as part of the fast food giant's latest video to boost food transparency.
Imahara traveled to Herbruck's Poultry Ranch, an egg supplier for McDonald's U.S. unit, to find out more with a McDonald's blogger.
First eggs that were laid within the past day travel on a conveyor belt, said Harry Herbruck, the supplier's executive vice president of operations. Some arrive from a chicken house as little as 100 feet away.
"Many of these eggs are so fresh that if you picked them up, they'd still be warm," Herbuck added.
