Corporations frequently don't test anything they aren't required to. Consider the Elixir Sulfanilamide fiasco (that resulted in several deaths). And that was a "drug", not a food. Led to Congressional action (back when Congress actually addressed real problems, instead of making up crises and then not dealing with them...but I digress...).

Always remember, corporations don't give a rip about us little people. Only if it costs them money do they give a crap.

After the judgment McD's reduced their "holding" temp to 160F.
