Mmmmm, Chicken Nuggets

BoingBoing reports that chicken nuggets contain an ingredient also found in Silly Putty:

American McNuggets (190 calories, 12 grams of fat, 2 grams of saturated fat for 4 pieces) contain the chemical preservative tBHQ, tertiary butylhydroquinone, a petroleum-based product. They also contain dimethylpolysiloxane, "an anti-foaming agent" also used in Silly Putty.
That's one more bit of information for Jamie Oliver to add to his chicken nugget demonstration.
