McDonald's apologizes 

"The ad was insensitive in its mention of pit bulls. We apologize. As soon as we learned of it, we tracked the source and had the local markets pull the ad immediately. We'll do a better job next time." ­— From a written statement issued by McDonald's, regarding a short-lived radio ad campaign that said eating its new Chicken McBites product was less risky than petting a stray pit bull. The ad drew howls of protest from animal advocates and others. A 4.5 ounce serving of McBites has 470 calories, representing 43 percent of your recommended daily fat intake, according to nutritional analysis from McDonald's.
