russian mcdonalds - McDonald's Corporation

It’s consumer rights watchdog filed a lawsuit against what is perhaps the United States’ most recognizable brand by claiming they found E-coli and antibiotics in their food, and that McDonald’s under-stated the calorie-count in their hamburgers and milkshakes.
