Four McDonald's restaurants shut in Moscow
August 22 , 2014
Four branches of McDonald’s have been shut temporarily in Moscow as Russia continues a probe into food standards.
Rospotrebnadzor, the country’s key consumer watchdog, alleged that the four restaurants have violated several sanitary norms.
McDonald’s said it was examining the allegations, saying it was committed to providing “safe and quality products.”
Russia has banned several food imports from the west in response to sanctions imposed on it by the EU and US.
