Russian watchdog initiates investigations of McDonald's franchises
Three Moscow-area McDonald's restaurants were temporarily closed due to alleged sanitary issues. Among the closed restaurants is the first McDonald's to be opened in Russia. Health officials are continuing to conduct frequent inspections into the five remaining Moscow city McDonald's in operation, RT reports.
"We're acting according to Rospotrebnadzor's recommendations and are carrying out probes within the current rules," the head of the Moscow branch of Rospotrebnadzor said, according to RT.
Meanwhile, probes are also being aggressively conducted into McDonald's restaurants throughout the Urals--most notably in the cities of Yekaterinburg and Chelyabinsk.
"The checks are being done due to the city residents' complains about the quality of the products," Yekaterinburg Rospotrebnadzor Secretary Natalia Lukyantseva, according to RT. "They aren't done in every restaurant of the franchise, only in those customers complained about."
The combined results of Rospotrebnadzor's inspections into McDonald's restaurants throughout Russia are expected to be released in approximately three weeks.
