McDonald's Global Sales Fall Due To China Meat Scare
Aug. 08, 2014
(Undated) -- McDonald's is reporting less-than-expected global sales for July following a meat scare in China. A supplier accused of putting false sell-by dates on expired meat forced the fast food giant to temporarily take items like Big Macs and Spicy McWings off the menu in China. McDonald's said worldwide sales at its restaurants open at least 13 months were down two-point-five percent last month. Analysts had forecast a sales decline of just over one-percent.
