The latest photo of McDonald's McRib meat may not look anything like what people are used to seeing, but the company states the slab is the real thing,  just in a different form ABC News reported Wednesday.

"There are few things more legendary at McDonald's than the McRib," McDonald's told ABC News. "It is a boneless, seasoned pork patty on a bun with slivered onions, two dill pickle slices and plenty of our sweet, smoky, barbecue style sauce. One reason our customers love the McRib is its fun and wonderful shape. Just like a burger patty is formed to be round and flat, we form the iconic McRib in the shape of traditional ribs. We then flash freeze the patty to seal in flavor and freshness, just like you freeze meat in your own freezer, before going to our restaurants. The McRib is also known for its iconic taste, which is why we use a quality cut of pork - pork shoulder - to give our McRib lovers a thicker, meatier McRib experience."

The photo was captured by a reddit user in a canadian McDonalds, who showed it to a friend, and then posted to the website NewsMax reported.

People took to Twitter to express their initial reaction when they saw the photo.

"1 reason I don't eat a McRib. It tastes gross & this is how it looks frozen," Twitter user @Aaliyyyahhh posted on her account.

"A frozen #McRib looks like the bottom of a sneaker, spoiler: it also contains the same rubber," user @mrkyle914 said on his account.

 "The McRib is the Shamrock Shake of fast food sandwiches," @DDNSmartMouth said.

The McRib has 500 calories, 22 grams of protein, 26 grams of fat, 44 grams of carbohydrates, and 980 milligrams of sodium according to nutrition facts on the McDonald's website.
