San Francisco Bans Happy Meals, The Clown Is Not Going To Like This

November 3, 2010

San Francisco has banned the Happy Meal, on the day of the return of the McRib no less. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors on Tuesday passed an ordinance requiring meals that included toys with their purchase to meet specific nutritional guidelines. The vote, achieved with a Gavin Newsom veto-proof majority of 8-3, effectively bans the Happy Meal. They hope will force fast-food chains such as McDonald’s to make their children’s meals healthier or stop selling them with toys. Supervisors say the law would make San Francisco the first major city to take this action to combat childhood obesity.McDonald’s has said the law threatens business and restricts parents’ ability to make choices for their children. The clown is not happy..
