It seems McDonald's is telling its employees not to eat McDonald's food. Or at least that's what an employee resource website had posted before it was taken down.
CNN snapped photos of the site before it was taken down and shared them on Wednesday. Those shots before the website was taken down. A graphic on the site shows a meal with a cheeseburger, fries and drink under the caption "Unhealthy choice." Next to it is a picture of a sub, a salad and water under the caption "Healthier choice."
A media statement on McDonald's main site says: "we’ve directed the vendor to take down the website. Between links to irrelevant or outdated information, along with outside groups taking elements out of context, this created unwarranted scrutiny and inappropriate commentary. None of this helps our McDonald’s team members."
MSNBC reported on Monday the site told employees, "Fast foods are quick, reasonably priced, and readily available alternatives to home cooking. While convenient and economical for a busy lifestyle, fast foods are typically high in calories, fat, saturated fat, sugar, and salt and may put people at risk for becoming overweight."
