Get ready to say goodbye to those 'made in China' goodies commonly found in kids' Happy Meals. Mark Fabes, McDonald's IT Director, was speaking on a panel about emerging technologies at a Fujitsu customer event in Munich.

But then again, customers would probably care less since just about everything at McDonald's is not exactly good for your health. What do you think about this?
