Federal judge dismisses false advertising claims against Wendy's, McDonald's

  • McDonald's and Wendy's have successfully defended themselves against a lawsuit accusing them of misleading customers about the size of their burgers. The court found no evidence that the fast-food chains sold smaller burgers than advertised or that the plaintiff had even seen the ads for the burgers he purchased.
  • The judge stated that the efforts made by McDonald's and Wendy's to make their burgers look appealing were similar to other companies' use of visually appealing images. He also ruled that depicting fewer toppings than the plaintiff's personal preference was not misleading.
  • Other fast-food chains, such as Burger King and Taco Bell, are also facing similar lawsuits over their depiction of menu items.
