McDonald's Sneak Attack: Why the Happy Meal Has Them in Trouble
Well, McDonald's may be in big trouble for that.
The Center for Science in the Public Interest says McDonald's is luring children toward unhealthy eating habits by offering toys, and may bring a lawsuit against the fast food giant for breaking their agreement not to market calorie packed meals to kids.
Mickey D's doesn't see anything wrong with adding a toy inside a Happy Meal box and they're slamming such accusations.
"CSPI's twisted characterization of McDonald's as 'the stranger in the playground handing out candy to children' is an insult to every one of our franchisees and employees around the world," the company's CEO James Skinner said.
"I want you to know we will vigorously defend our brand, our reputation, our food, and our people. CSPI is wrong in its assertions and frivolous in its legal threats," he continues.
