We’ll reveal some shocking secrets that this fast-food giant would rather keep quiet. If you’re hungry for more amazing stories be sure to follow us on facebook and twitter.
You’ve probably heard the story of Stella Liebeck who won three million dollars in a LAWSUIT against McDonald’s when she spilled a hot cup of coffee on her lap that may seem unnecessarily litigious but the truth is that the restaurant had served the coffee hot enough to cause second-degree burns in an instant and Lee Beck ended up meetings skin grafts for her third-degree burns. She was only one of 700 people who were seriously burned by McDonald’s coffee and had originally asked for only $20,000 to cover her medical bills which McDonald’s refused to pay.
2. BAD MEAT
There have been a lot of alleged scandals and misleading headlines over the years about the quality of McDonald’s meat but a court recently jailed 10 employees in China for supplying expired meat to this fast-food giant. Food safety in China has long been an issue and it was discovered that Shanghai Husi food Corporation Limited was repackaging old meat and simply labeling it with new expiration dates although other chains were also affected, McDonald’s pledged to stick with their suppliers.
