McDonalds Japan Losing its teeth?
Looks like you may find some unwelcome surprises in your burger or chicken nuggets if you choose to eat at a McDonalds on your holiday in Japan. The global giant company is struggling to come back from 6 years of downturn in its businesses there, and looks set to actually post a corporate loss this year
McDonalds Japan faces big challenges. They've had several scandals involving their suppliers. They recently changed their sources of meat from China to Thailand after their Chinese supplier sold expired meat to them. That became a huge scandal,and tends to leave a lasting impression with customers.
Then they had to ration customers to small sizes of fries only, because of a North American West Coast labor dispute. They had to bite the bullet and air ship emergency supplies of fries into Japan, because of the furor.
Now after changing to a Thailand supplier news comes of chicken nuggets containing plastic bits in them. So far there are two known complaints of this.
In August last year a customer was surprised to discover a tooth embedded in one of his french fries.
In December a small child cut his mouth on a piece of vinyl in a chocolate sundae.
I'd heard that the McDonald's Japan had a "different" menu.
