[Ed. – It’s to do with the one-time price difference between “with cheese,” and without, and the fact that the Quarter Pounder menu item is now offered only with cheese. It’s the unfairness of being forced to pay for that, you see. (Anyone else detecting a sue-and-settle nuisance here?)]
Cynthia Kissner and Leonard Werner believe they are being unfairly charged for their “Quarter Pounders,” since other burgers cost less without cheese.
The five million dollar lawsuit was filed on May 8 in Fort Lauderdale, and is seeking class-action status. According to the Miami Herald, McDonald’s used to offer four different options for the popular sandwich, two of which came without cheese and cost between 30 and 90 cents less.
The lawsuit says “at some point” 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.”
