Fast Food Toy Ban
McDonald’s restaurants in San Francisco have now found a way to get around a city law that takes effect on Thursday that bans free toy giveaways with Happy Meals.
Legislation banning toys from being sold in San Francisco as part of fast-food meals that do not meet certain nutritional standards is set to go into effect in the city Thursday.
A California mother of two and The Center for Science in the Public Interest are suing McDonald’s Corp. to get the fast-food chain to stop using toys to market meals to young children.
San Francisco’s legislation prohibiting toys from fast-food meals that don’t meet certain nutritional standards may get a light-hearted skewering soon on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.”
