McDonald's confirms it has taken down a website for its employees that ripped fast food.  A recent post on the website had warned employees that fast food are typically high in calories, fat and sugar and may put people at risk for becoming overweight. 

McDonald's released a statement saying it had directed its vendor to take the website down as it contained irrelevant or outdated information. 

The fast-food chain also said outside groups had taken elements out of context and this had created "unwarranted scrutiny and inappropriate commentary."  (Metro News Networks, Inc)
