McDonald’s Japan sales slide 21% on fries shortage

The operator of McDonald’s in Japan said today that same-store sales plunged 21% in December from a year earlier after it was hit by a shortage of french fries. McDonald’s Holdings Co (Japan) restricted sales of chips to small servings only from December 17 up to January 4, as a labour dispute at US West Coast ports delayed imports. In a new blow, the company also disclosed this week that customers had found objects including a human tooth and plastic in its products, reigniting safety fears.
