McDonald’s fined for bolt in meal

‘Fast food giant McDonald’s has been fined £13,500 after a metal bolt was found in a snack at a West Midlands shopping centre.

A customer chewed on the bolt, which was in a sausage and egg McMuffin, at the outlet in Merry Hill in June 2006.

The company pleaded guilty at Dudley Magistrates’ Court on Thursday to a charge of producing food which did not meet required standards.

The court heard bolts were missing from a kitchen grill.’
