Grub Street just released a report of the 11 most shockingly gross fast food settlements in history. Not surprisingly KFC having to pay millions to an Australian family after their chicken gives daughter brain damage, which we shared with you last week, made the list. Sadly more and more often we’re hearing about these types of cases. A few that jumped out were, in 2006 Pepsi was ordered to get the lead out of their bottle labels and pay a hefty $1 MILLION dollars in civil penalties.
In 2009 McDonalds had to pony up $10 MILLION dollars in donations to Hindu and vegetarian groups for not disclosing that its fries were made with beef by-products. Imagine their surprise.
The rest are just as shocking and gross. You can read about them on Grub Street.
