      McDonald's must pay worker who grew fat
      SAO PAULO: A Brazilian court has ruled that McDonald's must pay a former franchise manager US$17,500 (S$22,700) because he gained 30kg while working there for about 12 years.

      The 32-year-old man said he felt forced to sample the food each day to ensure that quality standards remained high, because McDonald's hired 'mystery clients' to randomly visit restaurants and report on the food, service and cleanliness.

      The man also said the company offered free lunches to employees, adding to his calorie intake while on the job. His identity was not released.

      The ruling was signed on Tuesday by Judge Joao Ghisleni Filho in Porto Alegre.

      The judge said that McDonald's could appeal, and the Brazilian headquarters of the chain said in an e-mailed statement on Thursday that it was weighing its legal options.

      McDonald's also noted that it offers healthier food choices.

      'The chain offers a large variety of options and balanced menus to cater (to) the daily dietary needs of its employees,' the company, whose headquarters is in Oak Brook, Illinois, in the United States, said in a statement.

    • Roy Yeo Blame on his unhealthy lifestyle - no exercise, never workout... Even if you eat healthy meals and sleep everyday also will grow fat. I do pity those who have the mindset of blaming the fast food companies the moment people start to have health problems. Just because fast food restaurants serve food with one of the lowest nutrients count in the food industry, they get all the flak. Why not blame him on his possible unhealthy lifestyle instead.
