A worker from Mcdonald's South Carolina was arrested after customers discovered phlegm in their drinks.

South Carolina police have arrested the 19 year old Mcdonald’s worker Marvin Washington Jr., after two customers have complained of a phlegm, floating in their drinks.

The customers have complained that the iced tea they ordered, was not sweet enough. In retaliation, Washington was seen in the surveillance video leaning over the cups then removing the lid and spitting on the drinks.

The owner of the Mcdonald’s branch pleaded for people to “not to reach conclusions until all the facts come out”. It is not clear Washington has hired a lawyer to help him with his case.

Goodbye, Happy Meals?

Written on August 16, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

First, they will have had it with the little plastic toys, so kids will have to say goodbye to Donkey or Puss watches. And then, perhaps, they will mandate total riddance of Happy Meals, which is quite easier to do, for what is a Happy Meal without the little plastic toy anyway?

As of late, San Francisco is pondering one health point: Imagine a life that has “no more Happy Meals.” Health supervisors of the city are pointing to the lure of plastic toys as a source of unfair advantage for McDonald’s. Happy Meals give children the choice to eat unhealthy food.

Prior to this, Santa Clara, CA restricted restaurants in its unincorporated areas from giving away toys for meals amounting with more than 485 calories. There has also been regulations for sodium. Of course, these procedures cancelled out Happy Meals in the menu.

These health actions have been perhaps heightened by First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids’ health-issue-awareness program. And with this kind of awareness, families are the most affected demographic–the same target demographic of the giant chain in keeping its wordlwide operations.
