McDonald's has decided to shut down a website aimed at providing work and life advice to its employees after it was reported that it had urged workers not to eat the very fast food they are hired to produce.
The Oak Brook, Ill.-based McDonald's said Thursday that information on its McResources Line site had been taken out of context thus generating “unwarranted scrutiny and inappropriate commentary,” according to a McDonald's spokeswoman.
McDonald's is the poster child for the modern Western diet and all the health problems that it engenders. As a general rule, “food” was designed to supply your body with all the nutrients it needs.
Ironically, the fast food giant recently ended up with a PR nightmare after suggesting its own employees forgo fast food fare for healthier options like salad and water. As reported by Business Insider:
“Several excerpts from the posts, which were created from a third-party vendor, warned against the negative effects of fast food, evengoing so far as labeling a cheeseburger and fries, core items on its menu, as an ‘unhealthy choice.'”
The site also warned employees that fast-food meals are “almost always high” in calories, fat, sugar, and saltand rightfully so, I might add. Warning employees of the health hazards of the very food they produce and serve, however, does not make for good PR.

And in an embarrassing moment for McDonald's, the world's largest hamburger chain, CNBC reported last week that the McResource website discouraged eating fast food as part of its tips for healthy living.
While it has shut down the website, McDonald's said it plans to continue an internal telephone help line through which the majority of its employees access its work-life help resources.
