Ronald McDonald Under Fire


The junk food police are here again.
Corporate Accountability International
would like the character Ronald to leave the marketing of the fast food giant McDonald’s.
This actor encourages childhood diseases such as obesity and diabetes. Your Company incites high intakes of salt, sugar and fat calorie upon consumption of the food. Also, they do not like your promotion of your toy freebies upon purchase of your food to the youngest of children.
Children health advocates are targeting Ronald McDonald in an effort to prevent McDonald’s from marketing to children. San Francisco has already banned “happy meals”, and other cities have tried to follow suit (sparking industry resistance).

Meanwhile, a Wisconsin man has apparently eaten his 25,000th Big Mac in 39 years — that’s almost two a day — but does not seem to be any the worse for wear.
