McDonald's serving 'farm-to-fork' fare? Not likely

McDonald’s, the global burger chain, is expected to launch a PR campaign next month to tell the “farm-to-fork” story behind its food.

In a sneak-peak commercial the company posted to YouTube on Dec. 14, a salt-of-the-earth potato farmer named Frank Martinez, who is a McDonald’s supplier, carefully peels a potato and then bites into it, saying, “They’re good now. Just wait ‘til they’re McDonald’s fries.”
