The San Francisco Board of Supervisors have preliminarily banned toys from certain Happy Meals, reports the Globe and Mail.
Says the report, "On Tuesday, San Francisco became the first major U.S. city to ban restaurants from offering a free toy with meals that fail to meet certain nutritional guidelines. Happy Meals must now be healthy meals. The city’s Board of Supervisors voted 8-3 to preliminarily approve the ordinance, enough to ensure it cannot be vetoed by Mayor Gavin Newsom."
So we guess McDonald’s TV ads for Happy Meals that are shown in the Bay Area will now have to carry this disclaimer in tiny print at the bottom of the ads: "Toy not available in San Francisco where the Board of Scrooges won’t let you have one."
