The Russian consumer protection agency, Rospotrebnadzor, has reportedly announced that it filed a claim alleging that McDonald’s has misrepresented the nutritional information of several hamburger and ice cream menu items and that two restaurant locations showed traces of E. coli contamination in their salads and Caesar wraps. Although Rospotrebnadzor said it filed a lawsuit on July 3, 2014, a McDonald’s representative told the media in late July 2014 that the company had not received either an official complaint from the court or a notice from the agency. The complaint allegedly accuses McDonald’s of listing nutritional information that indicated its hamburgers and milkshakes had about one-half or one-third of the actual calorie, fat, protein, and carbohydrate counts. According to The New York Times, Russia has targeted food imports during geopolitical tension before, banning cheese and wines from post-Soviet neighbors during times of disagreement with those countries. Following Russia’s annexation of the Crimean peninsula in March 2014, McDonald’s closed its three Crimean restaurants, citing potential business and regulatory implications. This move reportedly led to Russian politicians calling for a ban on the country’s some 400 McDonald’s locations. See The New York Times and Law360, July 25, 2014.
