The US government has partnered with McDonald’s to increase the fast food giant’s dairy use in a move the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is calling ‘irresponsible’.
Scientists with Dairy Management Inc. (DMI) worked closely with McDonald’s to formulate recipes that use more dairy, to be implemented at over 14,000 locations nationwide.
Changes include the introduction of larger cheese slices, and more heavily dairy-laden beverages.

DMI works with fast-food restaurants to increase the use of dairy products in exchange for a cash injection from the dairy industry.
Companies that have worked with DMI include such major fast food brands as Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, and Wendy’s.
