Quality Control at Mcdonalds Sucks!

Every second French Fry is either burnt, has a harden end or too short for satisfactory consumption.
Did you know that there are people who go around checking that this does not happen?

    You’d think that $15 an hour would increase quality control at McDonald’s. Nope. It’s even worse.

    McDonalds are cooked to last! Have you seen the video of the decomposing food, McDonalds v other fast food over 3 month period. Everything turns to mush and the McDonald fries still look as fresh as when they were cooked, after 12 weeks of being cooked. Its quite an eye opener and puts you off eating them again.

    It has been said you can have any two of the follow three items, but not all three at any one time.
    quality, speed, cost
    It sounds as if quality was sacrificed to deliver a product quickly with a low cost.

    LOL! Guys, one thing Mac does well is delivering the same burger / happy meal / soft serve consistently. This is what drives their success. Not the price, the family ambiance etc. It is the fact that you know what a Big Mac tastes like, and that you can go to any store and it will be more or less the same.
    So I was dismayed to find out the poor quality control in their French Fries.

    Your food is being made by 15 year old at McDonalds. Did you expect gourmet? 🙂

    i didn’t think ANY Mac french fry was fit for consumption!
    i thought this post would be about a faulty happy meal toy or something though. like many others i’ve tried in vain to destroy lots of those little things, i tip my hat to the poor designers who have to make those things happen.
