After years of jokes — and frustration from thousands of customers — the US government is investigating why McFlurry’s machines malfunctioned. McDonald’s soft ice cream is often so unavailable that alarm bells have gone off at the Federal Trade Commission.
It belongs to McDonald’s like that crazy clown or Big Mac: the McFlurry machine that crashed. They have become so popular in the United States that they are often made fun of. Someone created a website once – McBroken.com – Show all sites where the device is inactive. It turns out that it relates to up to 10.49% of all branches in the United States. If you live in New York, even worse, you can’t get a McFlurry at one of the chain’s five hamburger restaurants. McDonald’s itself also joked in a tweet and a self-written song about the issue also went viral on TikTok. Just to say: Americans are awake with McFlurry.
But at the same time, they at the Federal Trade Commission believe that something is not right, according to the Wall Steet Journal. A government agency has opened an investigation. For example, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for McDonald’s franchisees wants to know how often machines fail. The FTC also suspects that the machines are too complex to be repaired except by the supplier. This is inconsistent with the “right to repair”.
