McDonald’s Website Tells Employees: Don’t Eat Our Food

mcdonalds, unhealthy, employeesA corporate website has advised McDonald’s employees [1] that cheeseburgers and fries [2] are an unhealthy meal choice – a significant admission from the world’s largest hamburger chain restaurant.

The advice was dispensed on McResource, a website for McDonald’s employees that since has been shut down.

“While convenient and economical for a busy lifestyle, fast foods are typically high in calories, fat, saturated fat [3], sugar, and salt and may put people at risk for becoming overweight,” McResource told employees.

McResource reportedly displayed [4] a picture of a cheeseburger, fries and a soft drink next to the words “unhealthy choice” and salad, a glass of water and a submarine sandwich next to the words “healthier choice,” Britain’s Daily Mail reported. The healthy choice looks like similar to a Subway sandwich. Another graphic at the site reportedly advised employees to choose fruits and vegetables over “unhealthy fatty foods.”

A combination of factors has led us to re-evaluate and we’ve directed the vendor to take down the website. Between links to irrelevant or outdated information, along with outside groups taking elements out of context, this created unwarranted scrutiny and inappropriate commentary. None of this helps our McDonald’s team members.

Site Also Advised McDonald’s Workers to Apply for Food Stamps

This wasn’t the first time that McResource reportedly embarrassed [7] the fast food giant. The site previously attracted criticism because of dubious advice.
