On September 14, 2010, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), a vegan advocacy group, released a television commercial blaming McDonald’s for heart disease. This commercial is currently airing in the Washington D.C. area and may air in other major cities soon. Below is McDonald’s statement in response to that ad.
“This commercial is outrageous, misleading and unfair to all consumers. McDonald’s trusts our customers to put such outlandish propaganda in perspective, and to make food and lifestyle choices that are right for them.”
