Last week, the Norwegian TV channel TV2 unveiled a report on five McDonald’s restaurants, the world’s largest fast-food chain.
The report indicates that the bacteria found on the tables of five Macdonald’s tables outnumbered the ones measured in the toilet of the restaurants.
The fast food restaurant chain McDonald’s in Oslo were monitored by health authorities.
The swarming of bacteria is due to faulty cleaning procedures, according to Lena Furuberg, expert on health issues in the Norwegian Institute of Technology, who participated in the issue of consumer protection “TV2 hjelper deg” (TV2 helps you ) aired Thursday night.
“It seems they use just a tissue and they spread bacteria from one table to another,” Lena Furuberg was quoted by the French daily L’Express as saying.
“Microorganisms are everywhere, but in this case, the quantities found are far beyond what one is entitled to expect in a paying restaurant,” Mrs. Furuberg said.
Margaret Brusletto, the spokesman for the restaurant chain in Norway, said she was “surprised” of the results of investigation. “We are not satisfied, it is definitely not good,” she said.
There are 27 Restaurants across Morocco, and the 1st restaurant opened in Casablanca in December 18, 1992.
MacDonald’s is considered as a cheap place to eat all over the world. While a number of Moroccans, especially the young generation, regards it as a cool place to be and eat with friends, others reject the idea of having such unhealthy fast-food restaurants in a country known for the refinement of its cuisine.
McDonald’s is the leading global foodservice retailer with more than 34,000 local restaurants serving approximately 69 million people in 119 countries each day. More than 80% of McDonald’s restaurants worldwide are owned and operated by independent local entrepreneurs.
