Only a couple of comments as I can easily imagine that the only point of this post is to provoke bickering and I had that before.
About MacDonalds I can tell you that with them there are two things that you can be sure about and that are their poor nutritional value and keeping uniform standards all over the world including ukraine.They have their own auditing system and they could lose their licence if there are any failures on their restaurants or they fail to comply with their specifications.
If you buy packaged food in supermarkets it is your responsibility to check that the product self life is not expired. The worse idea that you can have is to buy on any of the many outlets on the streets buying cooked or raw fish and meat as the potential for food poisoning is high due to the poor hygiene of the outlets which anybody can see. Proper restaurants and supermarkets have good hygiene and you only need to worry about that the product is not expired.
I can understand that as an american the temptation of cheap food readily available on the streets is too strong but you only need to talk to the ukrainian people to get to know the truth about those outlets
