Isn’t this ironic. McDonalds shut down a website that told workers to avoid eating fast food because it’s not good for you.

The Oak Brook, Ill.-based McDonald’s said Thursday that information on its McResources Line site had been taken out of context thus generating “unwarranted scrutiny and inappropriate commentary,” according to a McDonald’s spokeswoman.

On Monday, CNBC reported that McDonald’s had posted on the site an illustration of two meals — one that looked suspiciously like the company’s own double cheeseburger offering, complete with soft drink and fries, that was labeled “Unhealthy choice.” Next to it was another illustration showing a submarine sandwich, salad and a glass of water, labeled “Healthier choice.”

The site also advised that fast-food places are “almost always high” in calories, fat, sugar and salt.
