American Samoa urged to review location of planned fast-food outlet

The US National Park Service has recommended that American Samoa explores another location for a proposed fast-food outlet.

McDonalds wants to open a restaurant on Utulei Beach.

Federal officials observe that the placement of a fast food restaurant in a park dedicated to public outdoor recreation seems particularly inappropriate.

Over the years Utulei beach Park has received four Land and Water Conservation Fund grants.
