The reason why McDonald’s had to recall 1 million chicken nuggets will make your stomach sick.
Constant customer complaints for the side menu offerings are going to the operator of the McDonald’s chain in Japan, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Customers complain that what they eat and taste in the chicken nuggets can be barely called chicken meat. One customer even found some blue plastic in an order of their nuggets, while another one found piece of vinyl.
“We deeply apologize for the trouble we have caused our customers and we are taking quick measures to analyze the cause of the contamination,” said Takashi Hasegasa, a company’s spokeswoman.
Unfortunately, these weren’t the last reports about this food full of potentially hazardous materials. Last August, a customer complained because he found a piece of human tooth in the french fries at McDonald’s in Osaka. How disgusting!
McDonald’s has also been facing some poultry problems. Last summer, there was a scandal when a McDonald’s poultry supplier in China was accused of mixing fresh chicken meat with an expired one, which made a real health threat to customers.
McDonald’s is faced up with a 10% drop in sales last year due to the complaints from the customers. What is interesting, is that in order to calm down the customers, McDonald’s started giving discounts, giveaways and tried to make new nuggets from tofu.
We hope that these true stories will make people want to buy more organic and healthier food, instead of junk food.
