FIJI, May 09, 2001: The Daily Post newspaper says a poll conducted in Suva revealed that most Hindus and vegetarians in Fiji are alarmed after revelations that French fries served by US fast food giant McDonald's contains beef extracts. A Hindu lawyer said the community was following developments with the possibility of filing a lawsuit against McDonald's Fiji. Fiji managing director Mark McElrath said they use 100 percent vegetable oil at the two outlets in Fiji as they are aware of the Hindu taboos placed on beef. However, the beef extract, at least for McDonald's fries in America, is added prior to cooking at the restaurant.
