For anyone who has ever wondered what really goes into making a chicken McNugget, McDonald's of Canada is answering that question and trying to debunk the rumor of "pink goo."

A photo of "pink goo" recently went viral on the Internet with a caption that read, “Can you guess what McDonalds food item this is.” It was billed as being an entire chicken, ground up into something called mechanically separated poultry.

McDonald's says that photo was a hoax, but the "goo" rumor won't seem to go away, so the company decided to air a Super Bowl commercial to address how the McNuggets are really made.
