Biden administration launches investigation into…broken McDonald’s ice cream machines

September 4, 2021

You cannot make this stuff up: with everything that is going on in the country and around the world today the Biden administration has launched an investigation into McDonald’s ice cream machines, which apparently break down quite often. Here is more:

President Joe Biden’s Federal Trade Commission has begun to look into the too-oft broken McDonald’s ice cream machines, which have angered consumers and franchise owners for years.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has carried out an inquiry into the Mcdonald’s broken ice cream machines. The inquiry seeks to discover if Taylor Commercial Foodservice LLC, the manufacturer of the machines, has engaged in practices that hinder McDonald’s owners’ abilities to fix machines themselves or seek repairs from a third party.

The FTC has ramped up efforts to prevent manufacturing companies from prohibiting personal or third-party repair of products sold to consumers and businesses.

In a statement, McDonald’s aimed to cool down any buzz regarding a potential FTC inquiry. “Nothing is more important to us than delivering on our high standards for food quality and safety, which is why we work with fully vetted partners that can reliably provide safe solutions at scale.”

We know that Joe Biden cannot multi-task and you have to have priorities I guess. And we all know how much good ole Uncle Joe loves his ice cream…

    When at a loss for options, the weak of mind and character major in minutiae. The key to survival in the administrative state is putting on the appearance of activity without regard to effect. This is one such example. Taylor is not a monopoly. Allow market forces to do their magic. Having said that I am now prepared to be transported to the Gulag.

      It’s all about appearances, isn’t it? The left will use this as an example of how busy he is, he can do this and still take care of everything else, while we know they are just trying to make it look like he is doing something.

    A waste of time for a waste of a president. However, the great McDonald’s ice cream machine mystery is quite interesting. An “insider” did a interesting story on it. But as nrringlee said, it was a business choice by both McDonalds and Taylor. Let them duke it out.

      I don’t think I have ever had ice cream from McDOnald’s to tell you the truth but yeah, this seems like an issue between businesses with no place for the government to be in the first place.

        What self respecting grandpa would bring the grand kids to McDonald’s (or DQ) for ice cream rather than the ice cream shop downtown?

    All aspects and departments of the government must justify their existence… so here goes the Trade Commission. No doubt they will have to increase their budget to hire investigators to visit all of the MacDonalds to determine the scope of the problem. Good catch Steve.

      That’s right, they need to make people think they are still relevant and essential so they do stuff like this to stay in the spotlight.

    Ice Cream is important to Queen P too. Goes w/ Adrenochrome (there a movie about it – as if ‘fiction’ but isn’t)
    Here’s one for your ‘Hegelian Scenarios’ Steve: The ‘very ones’ who constructed the Problem con people to ‘beLieVe’ they have the ‘Solution’ (Building back better for the Parasites).

    Actually, the article itself explains the interest quite well. The issue is not ice-cream; it’s a harmful business practice.

    God forbid Mcdonald’s has broken ice-cream machines. Such a national catastrophe. That trade commission better get on asap. Woo, you cannot make up this stuff. It is dumber than dumb and that is what Biden is …dumb!
