I had a few conversations with Italians today about this - and was surprised some of them actually thought it was okay. I think it is not only controversial but downright outrageous that a government seal would be given to a McDonald's product:
"The opposition Democratic Party has also slammed Zaia's use of an official government seal of approval for the new burger. On the McItaly's promotional material is a seal saying: "Under the patronage of" the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry -- a highly coveted government endorsement that is more often seen on museum exhibits and cultural initiatives than fast-food containers."
There is more here too. What do you think?
