    As a former Lamb Weston employee who helped in the processing of millions and millions of pounds of french fry manufacturing of not only McDonalds fries but many other companies fries I can tell you 100% that they are all made from 100% real potatoes grown from farms all across the Central Basin of Washington and Oregon!!!

      GMO potatoes that are so toxic when harvested (due to the pesticide Monitor that is used on them to prevent blemishes) that they have to be stored and off-gas for 6 weeks before they are even edible! Trace amounts remain in the fries. Toxic taters, then cooked in the least healthful way possible. No wonder America is sick and obese! Disgusting :(
      (Fox won’t let me post links, but I can back up these facts.)

    It looks more like he traced the “fries” all the way back to “fly’s”. Maybe the potatoes are large fly larve… they are GMO’d to look like potatoes.
