    common ! its more misleading to put article stating that McDonalds received HUGE fines, then the fact that skins were included. HUGE fines are equal probably to one restaurant’s 2-3 days income, if not less? Its ridiculous! they should fine them for 1-2 M USD, and then maybe they will start (again i say – start ) to consider changing anything. The income received by including the skins in all McDonalds restaurants BY FAR exceeds the fine of 50,000 EUR! Customer protection is joke in this case, and pls dont mention HUGE fines…
