McDonald’s to post nutrition info on food

Holy crap! What the hell got into McDonalds? The Golden Arches are actually going to post nutrition information on wrappers for their food!

Patrons of the world’s largest restaurant company will be able to learn the amount of calories and fat, among other information, in a McDonald’s product by looking at the wrapper instead of having to go to its Web site or ask for it at the counter.

The fast-food industry has been under pressure from consumer groups and the government to provide more nutritional information about its food. McDonald’s and others had previously made calorie count brochures available, resisting calls to do more.

Anyone care to wager how drastically sales of the Double Quarter Pounder drop once people can easily see how many calories/fat grams that monster has?
