Steamy sales of McDonald's Japan's Mega Mac, a hamburger with four patties, are forcing an extension of the program. The Kyodo News reports sales projections for the Mega Mac had been set at 1.68 million burgers for the temporary menu item that was to be offered until Feb. 4. But Japanese consumers bought up 3.32 million of the sandwiches in just the first four days of the program, forcing McDonald's Japan to extend the promotion.
