McDonald’s is facing a bit of scrutiny after the company created a website to tell it’s workers to avoid fast food.

The site listed main items as “unhealthy choices.”

This isn’t the first time the company’s website has garnished unwanted attention.

Earlier this year, it also advised employees to improve their etiquette by tipping fitness trainers and pool cleaners, even though most employees make minimum wage.

Also, it was advised them to get out of holiday debt by returning presents they receive and to use their heating budget to pay off shopping bills.

McDonald’s confirmed the site had been taken down in a statement posted on its website.

“A combination of factors has led us to re-evaluate and we’ve directed the vendor to take down the website. Between links to irrelevant or outdated information, along with outside groups taking elements out of context, this created unwarranted scrutiny and inappropriate commentary. None of this helps our McDonald’s team members.”
