According to:

 Meatless Meals for the Working People : Quick and Easy Vegetarian
by Debra Wasserman, Charles Stahler

which is republished frequently with updates (my version is from 1998
but a new copy is due in Jan.), McD's dips the fries in beef tallow (as
was previously mentioned.)

this is actually a pretty decent book if you are on the road a lot. It
even will tell you about if things have fat, are ovolacto or vegan, and
so on.
