Russian chief health inspector, Gennady Onishchenko, has issued a stinging criticism of McDonald’s, and the very concept of burgers in general, the Moscow Times reports.”I remind our citizens that burgers, even without worms, aren’t a sensible dietary choice for the population of Moscow and Russia. This is not our food,” Onishchenko reportedly said.
Onishchenko’s comments came after a woman reportedly found worms in a McChicken sandwich in Moscow. Onishchenko also called the McChicken sandwich an “excuse for food”, RFE/RL reports.
McDonalds is just the latest foreign food to incur the wrath of Onishchenko. He’s previously warned Russians not to eat sushi, Georgian wine, Ukrainian cheese and Belarusian milk.
