McDonald’s will restore its original, faithful menu this week at stores in Beijing and Guangzhou, two weeks after a food scandal forced the company to stop selling an array of delicious, artery-clogging food items including Big Macs and chicken nuggets. Menus in Shanghai will go back to normal later this month, Reuters promises. Bless.
McDonald’s, along with several other Western fast-food chains in China, cut ties with the US-owned Shanghai Husi Food after it was discovered that the company was distributing rotten and expired meat. The scandal led to meat shortage at several McDonald’s outlets across the country.
“We will go back to the origin of the food, where the food comes from, so it will take a longer time and is not as easy as people may think. We are doing a very stringent inspection to make sure the food meets the government’s requirement and McDonald’s standards,” a company spokeswoman told Reuters.
Six executives of Shanghai Husi have been taken into custody amid the tainted meat scandal, Xinhua said.
Justice has been served.
