Students Served Dog Biscuits With McDonald's Fries, Then Banned From Restaurant For Complaining

Some students at Westfield State University in Massachusetts are barking mad after they claim they received a serving of dog biscuits with their fries during a visit to their local McDonald’s. And to make matters worse, they were told to scram and never return when they complained to employees about it.

An e-mail sent to the entire student body reported the story this way:

A group of minority students, seniors, traveled to McDonald’s this weekend. During that visit the students ordered food and then promptly received dog biscuits in their French fries and in their food bag. The manager closed the window on the students saying, “I didn’t do it. I’m not sorry. You are banned from this store. Don’t come here again.”

After learning about the incident, the owner of the franchise has reportedly dismissed one employee and suspended another.

“At McDonald’s, the safety and well-being of our customers is a top priority. We have clear guidelines regarding employee conduct, and a strict policy prohibiting any form of discrimination or harassment in our restaurants,” he said. And just in case you were wondering, he added, “We take these matters very seriously.”
