San Antonio, Chile - A Chilean court has decided that McDonald's must pay a fine for selling burgers with mouse tails in them after hearing the charges brought against them.
According to the court judgment obtained by AFP, the Temuco city appeals court confirmed the decision against the fast-food juggernaut and ordered it to pay two million pesos ($3,600) as a result of a June 2012 incident.
Similarly, McDonald's had to pay an additional fine as well; however, the precise sum was not disclosed.
The court decided that the fine reflects "failures or defects" in McDonald's service quality and charged the business with "neglect" in quality management.
Health officials temporarily closed the impacted branch in Temuco, which is located around 700 kilometers (450 miles) south of Santiago, after the incident.
