Where’s the Beef? Burger King Sued Over the Size of Its Whopper
Sometimes people have been known to lie about size. In this case, it has to do with the size of the meat. Fast food giant Burger King is reportedly facing a class-action lawsuit after consumers claim the chain basically bragged about the size of their Whopper, but didn't fully deliver the results. The suit touches upon the nation's current high inflation, and the pressures on consumers' budgets. All this over some damn hamburgers?
CBS says that the plaintiffs are claiming that Burger King made their Whoppers look approximately 35% bigger in its advertising than it is in reality. The suit says that the consumers are seeking monetary damages for anyone who was "deceived" by Burger King's advertising. The lawsuit goes on to say that Burger King "materially overstate(s) the size of its burgers" in advertisements going back to 2017. But while the images of the Whopper may have grown bigger through the years, the "recipe or the amount of beef or ingredients contained in Burger King's Whopper has never changed," the lawsuit claims.
The suit claims that the fast food chain also overstated the size of other menu items as well.
Hudson Valley Residents Not Having it Your Way?
For those who have frequented Burger King locations across the Hudson Valley over the years, have you noticed by chance that their portions have been shrinking? if so, do you feel that the restaurant has been ripping you off and that you're not getting your money's worth?
Burger King, like many fast food chains, has made some additions to their menu recently, inducing the Ch'King chicken sandwich. The Ch'King is described as being a hand-breaded chicken fillet, with pickles and a “savory signature sauce” on their toasted potato bun. Haven't we heard this before? But there's also the Spicy Ch’King too! The hand-breaded part is basically the equivalent of how they market their flame broiled burgers.
