    Angry Beef Fries at McDonalds (I am very upset)

    Okay well let me make a long story short. I was in Hosp. Mgmt class today and we were discussing fast food chains i.e. McDonalds. My professor (who is from India) says that she does not eat from McDonalds. So a student asked if she doesn't even eat the french fries (cuz they are so good), she (the prof.) said no cuz (she knows that we don't know this) but McDonald's fries their french fries in Beef fat (for flavor). She said that it was discovered in India becuase Indians do not eat beef. She said that they (in india) sued McDonalds and the case was kept hush hush.

    Well I was totally disgusted becuase i don't eat meat. I think that, if what she is saying is true, McDonalds is playing with fire. They are being very decitful. Fries would be considered to be safe for vegetarians to eat becuase it is a vegetable (fried potatoes) BUT if these fries are being cooked in beef fat (for flavor) then vegetarian people should not be eating their fries and they should have been told of this fact.

    I felt totally betrayed. I believe my prof. because she has been in the field of Hospitalty for over 30 years and she is from India (so i am sure they story regarding the case in India is true). I really think i am going to investigate this. If it is true i really think that McDonald is looking for a serious lawsuit.
