The Times Of India, India – McDonald’s nutrition info is inaccurate.
“We don’t serve red wine, so if you order red wine it will be a wine.
We don’t make carrots.
We make rice,” the company said in a statement on Sunday, adding that there is no red wine or carrot in their food.
The restaurant chain’s nutritional information for Indian food is incorrect and includes red wine as a beverage, while its carrots are a vegetable.
The nutritional information is being widely criticised on social media as misleading.
McDonn’s nutritional info for Indian and non-Indian food.
(McDonalds India) “We’ve received numerous messages from our customers and they have expressed concern about their health,” said Suresh R. Singh, McDonald’s India’s chief nutritionist, in a Facebook post on Sunday.
“The information is incorrect.
They don’t eat carrots and we don’t sell carrots in our restaurants,” he added.
“What’s more, we never served red wine in our restaurant.
There is no Red Wine in our food.”
Mcdonald’s India, the national chain of the fast food chain, said it is “in constant communication with our nutritionists and nutrition experts on a daily basis.”
It also said that its nutritional information was based on the Food Standards Authority of India (FSAI) guidelines, which include the following: “If the product contains a component not listed in the Food Safety and Standards Act, it may not be safe to consume.”
“The food may be contaminated if it is not labelled as such.”
The company added that its food has been tested and is safe to eat.
“For any food to be safe for consumption, it needs to be made according to the guidelines, and there are no other safety factors,” the statement said.
“We are working on updating our nutritional information to reflect the changes in Indian dietary requirements,” it said.
“However, we will not be able to do this for some time.”
In response to the social media backlash, McDonalds India said it would soon launch a free online portal for its Indian customers, which will be launched soon.
“It is a matter of time before we start offering this portal, which would make it easy for our customers to make their own nutritional information changes,” the chain said in the statement.
It added that the portal would also enable its Indian consumers to view nutritional information in their own languages, such as English and Hindi.
