An interesting counterpoint analysis can be reviewed here:

The Burger Lab: Revisiting the Myth of The 12-Year Old McDonald’s Burger That Just Won’t Rot (Testing Results!),” by J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, 5 Nov 2010.

ET is not convinced that the conclusion from the above analysis is correct (the conclusion suffers from the logical fallacy that correlation proves causation), but it is otherwise the type of thought-provoking science-based inquiry that we love to see.
