There have been many ethical dilemmas over the past years about  customers wanting healthier choice options from fast food places for  better health and dietary needs. “In August 2002, a group of overweight  children in New York City filed a class-countable for the economic and  public health action lawsuit against McDonalds corporation seeking  compensation for obesity related health problems and improved  nutritional labeling of McDonald’s products” (Mello, Rimm &  Studdert, 2003, p. 207). Many people feel that the company is making  tons of money from customers while putting their health at risk due to  the high sodium and fat that a lot of their menu items carry. Not to  mention that when McDonalds run an advertisement on television for a new  sandwich they only have people in the commercials that are in shape.  This can be misleading to individuals who are not obese by making them  assume that they can eat McDonalds products without gaining weight.

This unethical dilemma effects the organization by way of dealing  with customer conflicts that boycott and file lawsuits against the  company which creates a bad work climate. “Unethical marketing that  exploits or harms another party reduces the customer’s evaluation of  perceived fairness and risks alienating the most committed customers”  (Ingram, Skinner & Taylor, 2005, p. 1.2). This causes a company to  lose profit, which will force them to reduce their expenses by letting  go of workers which will create more poverty. McDonald’s unethical  dilemma can cause customers to get more diseases associated with  unhealthy and weight gain such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart  disease, high cholesterol. This in turn can make McDonalds’ customers  spend more money in medical costs in regards to seeing the doctor more  frequently, buying more medication and even putting their body at risk  of a stroke which can lead to death.

While the company has putting salads and oatmeal on their menu, they  need to include hamburgers that come from grass fed cows which will has  less calories, fat and more antioxidant vitamins and omega fatty acids.  The company also allow customers to substitute their white buns for  wheat buns which are more healthy and put organic items on their menu  board.
