VOLGOGRAD, October 22. /TASS/. On Wednesday the Arbitration Tribunal of Russia’s Volgograd region put a $3,600 fine on the local restaurant of international fast food chain McDonald’s for sanitary standards violation.
One of five McDonald’s restaurants, located in Volgograd region in the south-east of Russia, was fined for ice-cream and fish meals containing coliform bacteria, attorney of the regional consumer rights’ protection service Vladimir Smirnov told TASS.
Starting this summer, Russia’s consumer watchdog has been inspecting McDonald’s chain, which includes 435 restaurants in 85 Russian cities. As a result, more than 200 fast food outlets have been thoroughly inspected, nine of which were closed and others fined for sanitary norms violations. Eventually, McDonald’s net profit in the country has slashed 30% in the third quarter of 2014, reaching $1 billion.
