NOVOSIBIRSK, August 22 (Itar-Tass) - The Novosibirsk regional department of the Russian federal consumer rights protection service (Rospotrebnadzor) will conduct checks at two McDonald's restaurants in Novosibirsk, a local official told Itar-Tass on Friday.
The head of the regional department for food safety control, Olga Berson, said all the restaurants of the network would be checked.
There are two McDonald's restaurants in Novosibirsk, the first opened at the Aura shopping centre in July this year, and the second in the Mega shopping centre earlier this week.
The company plans to open two more outlets near metro stations in the city, one this year and another later.
The director for McDonald's development in Russia, Lenar Kutlin, told Itar-Tass on Thursday that the network would not give up its plans for development in Siberia despite complaints from the control service.
Earlier, the federal service suspended operation of four McDonald’s restaurants in Moscow after finding a lot of violations of sanitary requirements.
The McDonald's fast food network opened in the United States in 1940. The company appeared in Russia in 1990 and currently has more than 430 restaurants in Russian cities.
