WHAT?! Is this for real?!
Two McDonald’s customers are filing a lawsuit against the burger chain for unwanted cheese that they received on their Quarter Pounder! Cynthia Kissner and Leonard Werner are suing for $5 million because even though hamburgers and cheeseburgers are priced differently, the Quarter Pounder costs the same no matter if the customer wants the cheese or not.
The lawsuit filed on May 8th in Ft. Lauderdale stated that McDonald’s use to sell different varieties of the Quarter Pounder, including two that came without cheese and costs 30 to 90 cents less.
According to the Miami Herald the lawsuit states that the plaintiffs, "have suffered injury as a result of their purchases because they were overcharged, and were required to pay for cheese, which is not a component of either a Quarter Pounder or a Double Quarter Pounder, that they did not want and did not receive."
A McDonald’s spokesperson told USA Today that the company does “not believe the claims in this lawsuit have legal merit. The advertised Quarter Pounder burger comes with cheese. We try to accommodate our customers’ requests by allowing them to customize their orders, such as a Quarter Pounder with no cheese."
