business news in context, analysis with attitude

Published reports say that McDonald’s has filed comments with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) saying that proposed changes in mad cow disease-oriented regulations – restricting the ingredients in cattle feed – don’t go far enough.
KC's View:
When Mickey D’s expresses concern about mad cow safeguards, you have to give those worries a lot of attention.

Also worrisome is the fact that McDonald’s filed its comments with FDA during the public comment period that ended last month, but the comments reportedly were not posted on FDA’s website, which would normally be the procedure.

Pretending these objections don’t exist won’t make it so.
