Grim news from Mickey D’s. A report in today’s Financial Times includes this depressing news:
“In another sign of the importance McDonald’s now places on health issues, the fast-food giant will next week unveil a strategy for combating obesity and improving physical well-being in the US…The multi-year plan will promote the importance of a balanced lifestyle, with three “pillars” including helping people make better food choices, and promoting public education and physical activity.”
McDonald’s can take their three pillars and shove ‘em. If I want a sermon, I’ll go to church, or listen to NPR. McDonald’s should stick to selling food.
And no, if this is a strategy to head off litigation, it won’t work.
