No More Ronald McDonald?

Posted: Updated:

(WLBT) - The face of McDonald's is now under fire. In a report to be released later on Wednesday, the group, Corporate Accountability International, calls on the restaurant chain to stop using its mascot, Ronald McDonald.

The group says the icon markets unhealthy fast food to kids. As a sign of protest, the group will hold "retirement" parties Wednesday at several McDonald's restaurants.

Meantime, the restaurant says Ronald does a lot of good by telling kids about healthy lifestyle choices.

Recently, the same group that is targeting Ronald McDonald also targeted cigarette mascot, Joe Camel.
