Fast food chains are being sued over lying about the size of their burgers, the New York Post is reporting.
McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and Burger King are all being accused of misrepresenting the size of the patties that customers receive in their burgers. Two different lawsuits have been filed.
The suits are talking about the images and videos that the companies use in their advertisements. In a suit filed a few weeks ago against McDonald’s and Wendy’s claim that the restaurants are using undercooked patties to make their burgers look bigger in marketing materials.
“A food stylist for Wendy’s has admitted that she tricks and deceives customers by using undercooked patties in burger advertisements,” according to the complaint.
According to Fox News, the food stylist has said that she prefers to go and buy a burger patty from the grocery store and use it in her shoots. Essentially, the burger you see in a marketing campaign could be a burger from your local store, not from the the food chain it claims to be from.
