Two Florida customers have sued McDonald’s for $5 million because the Quarter Pounder burger costs the same with or without cheese.
Their lawsuit, which seeks class-action status for anyone angry about unwanted cheese on burgers, alleges that the customers are being forced to pay for cheese they do not receive because they pay the same price whether they want slices of cheese on their Quarter Pounders or not.
"McDonald's is being unjustly enriched by these practices,” the lawsuit claims. Defendants Cynthia Kissner and Leonard Werner say that in the past, McDonald’s has offered a cheaper Quarter Pounder option that does not include cheese, but now they are forced to pay for cheese slices that they don’t want.
Is paying 30 to 90 cents more for cheese you don’t eat enough of an offense to sue over? On today’s show, Sara and Jeffy discussed this important issue.
