McDonald's to employees: Avoid burgers and fries - it's risky for your health

Expressing concern over employees health has backfired on the worlds leading fast food producer, McDonalds. Its own employee resources website recommended workers to avoid burgers and fries whenever possible due to health risks.

The McResource site, notorious for giving advice on how to make ends meet working for $7.25 an hour at McDonalds, has cooked up another gem: the folks preparing and serving McDonalds food should actually avoid eating it themselves because it is unhealthy.

To illustrate the difference between unhealthy choice and the healthier choice, the website of the food chain that employs some 700,000 people worldwide, for some reason countered graphics depicting a typical McDonalds meal with graphics very much resembling a meal at the companys major competitor, Subway: a sandwich with salad and a glass of water.

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 of becoming overweight, the site said.

Instead of eating a cheeseburger and fries, McResource advises to Eat at places that offer a variety of salads, soups and vegetables to maintain your best health.

Although not impossible it is more of a challenge to eat healthy when going to a fast food place. In general, avoiding items that are deep fried are your best bet, McDonalds revealed.

The corporate website also warns that people with high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease must be very careful about choosing fast food because of its high fat, salt, and sugar levels and calls to limit the extras such as cheese, bacon and mayonnaise.

After the new set of stunning revelations from McDonalds drew the attention of media worldwide, McDonalds issued a statement saying that, Portions of this website continue to be taken entirely out of context. This website provides useful information from respected third-parties about many topics, among them health and wellness. It also includes information from experts about healthy eating and making balanced choices. McDonalds agrees with this advice.

Even though a spokesperson for McDonalds, Lisa McComb, told CNBC that the data from the corporate website web site does not advise against fast food, the McResource site has already made way too many controversial remarks lately.

Just a couple of weeks ago fast-food workers in over 100 American cities walked off the job, demanding a $15 federal minimum wage, a two-fold rise from the current level. At the very same time McDonalds corporate website generously shared with its employees some nuances on how to tip dog walkers, house keepers, massage therapists, personal fitness instructors, pool cleaners, au pairs and other services they are definitely unlikely to make use of ever.

In October McDonalds workers unable to pay their bills or stay above the poverty line were advised to find help from food pantries or enlist in government benefit programs, instead of seeking higher wages http://rt.com/usa/mcdonalds-help-broke-food-stamps-649/).

As of now the McResource Line site is closed for maintenance.

We are temporarily performing some maintenance in order to provide you with the best experience possible, the announcement says.
