Starting Nov. 14 the McRib will be back at all McDonalds.

EDIT: It's available now and will end on Nov. 14th!

Actually, the news stories I just looked up said that the Mcrib will be available through Nov 14th. In other words that's the last day, not the first. Guess that means they are selling it right now?

EDIT: Yeah they started selling them Oct 17th, Nov 14th is the last day. Looks like I'm eating Mcribs tonight! Thanks for bringing it to my attention though, I might have missed it all together if you hadn't mentioned it. Only times I go to McDonalds is when I know they have the rib, and in March for the Shamrock shake.

I always though the mcrib was nasty. The sandwich has something like 500 calories and 10 grams of fat. I see my cholesterol going back up just typing this.

news.yahoo.com/whats-mcrib-made-anyway-125300382.html

What's the McRib made of, anyway?

How many ingredients are there?
At face value, the sandwich contains just pork, onions, and pickle slices slathered in barbecue sauce and laid out on a bun. But the truth is, there are roughly 70 ingredients. The bun alone contains 34, says TIME's Melnick. In addition to chemicals like ammonium sulfate and polysorbate 80, the most egregious may be azodicarbonamide — "a flour-bleaching agent most commonly used in the manufactur[ing] of foamed plastics like gym mats the and soles of shoes." According to McDonald's own ingredient list, the bun also includes calcium sulfate and ethoxylated mono- and diglycerides, among other chemicals.

Ooof. What's the meat made of?
Pig innards and plenty of salt. Typically, "restructured meat product" includes pig bits like tripe, heart, and scalded stomach, says Whet Moser at Chicago Magazine, citing a 1995 article by Robert Mandigo, a professor at the University of Nebraska. These parts are cooked and blended with salt and water to extract salt-soluble proteins, which act as a "glue" that helps bind the reshaped meat together.
