Abbott Northwestern Hospital says McDonald’s stays

[Minnesota Public Radio, April 12, 2012] Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis is one of 22 hospitals across the country being asked to get rid of its McDonald’s restaurant.

Corporate Accountability International, a corporate watchdog group that has gone after companies such as Coca-Cola, said hospitals shouldn’t be letting McDonald’s market unhealthy foods in health care facilities.

But the McDonald’s at Abbott Northwestern Hospital won’t be moving out anytime soon, hospital officials said.  A similar story ran April 13 on startribune.com.
