: : : I have heard that an article was printed stating that McD's burgers contain partial amounts of soybean and that 100% Pure Beef is the company from which the burgers are made. Does anyone know the article, date , etc????

: I heard the same thing.. not about soybeans, but that the reason they can say the 100% beef thing is 'cause that's the name of the company.. is it true?

Check out our government's Patent and Trademark Office's page. There is indeed a company using "100% Beef" as its trademark, but it is a small company that makes frozen hamburgers and hot dogs sold in convenience stores.
