Who doesn’t love cheese? On a burger, on a taco, on a Ritz, on pizza, in a salad, in a burrito, on a ham sammich, in a Philly cheese steak, all by itself, etc, etc.
Every type of cheese has its own special magic, be it Cheddar, Parmesan, Munster, Jarlsberg, Fumunda… well, maybe not Fumunda.
Anyhow, face it – cheese is nature’s perfect food.
But maybe not so much for Florida’s own Cynthia Kissner and Leonard Werner. These two Turophobics have filed a $5 million lawsuit in a Ft. Lauderdale court against McDonald’s for “being unfairly charged for cheese they don’t want on their burgers.”
No… really. Five mil over two slices of cheese.
As reported by Fox News, the possibly lactose intolerant duo are obviously not lovin’ it due to “hamburgers and cheeseburgers are different prices on the McDonald’s menu, but when they order a Quarter Pounder without the extra dairy, they’re still forced to pay the same amount.”
But much like a #3 that’s been super-sized, wait… there’s more;
According to the lawsuit, filed May 8 in Fort Lauderdale seeking class-action status, McDonald’s used to sell four different Quarter Pounder options, two of which came without cheese and cost between 30 to 90 cents less, the Miami Herald reports.
But “at some point,” the lawsuit claims, the restaurant stopped “separately displaying these products for purchase on menus, and currently lists the availability of Quarter Pounder with Cheese and Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese.”
Since this change, “customers have been forced, and continue to be overcharged for these products, by being forced to pay for two slices of cheese, which they do not want, order, or receive, to be able to purchase their desired product,” the lawsuit claims, according to the Herald.
“McDonald’s is being unjustly enriched by these practices because it receives payment for cheese it does not deliver to its customers,” the lawsuit states.
