McDonald’s in Yekaterinburg was closed for ninety days

August 27, 2014. Sverdlovsk Region division of Rospotrebnadzor (the state consumer rights watchdog) conducted an unscheduled inspection of one of McDonald’s restaurants at 8V Vosmoye Marta St in Yekaterinburg and closed the place for ninety days, the agency’s press service reports.

It was determined in the course of the inspection that the said restaurant did not have enough production areas and did not comply with the so-called route principle in the cooking process.

The agency found some faults with the food itself as well. For one, salad samples did not meet the existing microbiological standards. Besides, pickled onions contained more than the maximum permissible amount of chlorides, while hamburgers that were declared to be 100% beef were found to contain DNA of pigs.

McDonald’s confirmed that its restaurant in Vosmoye Marta St in Yekaterinburg had been closed.

‘We are now looking into the agency’s complaints to come up with an action plan that is necessary to make sure the restaurants can reopen as soon as possible. Good quality and safe food is McDonald’s top priority,’ the company website says.

Rospotrebnadzor’s local division has been inspecting McDonald’s Yekaterinburg restaurants since last week.
