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 claimed the chain essentially bragged about the size of their Whopper but failed to fully deliver the results. The lawsuit touches on the country’s current high inflation and pressures on consumer budgets. All that around fucking burgers?

SCS says plaintiffs claim Burger King made their Whoppers appear about 35% larger in its advertising than they actually are. The lawsuit says consumers are seeking damages for anyone “deceived” by Burger King’s advertising. The lawsuit goes on to say that Burger King “significantly overestimates the size of his hamburgers” in ads dating back to 2017. But while images of the Whopper may have gotten bigger over the years, the “the recipe or amount of beef or ingredients in Burger King’s Whopper has never changed,” the lawsuit claims.

The lawsuit claims the fast-food chain also overstated the size of other menu items.

Are Hudson Valley residents failing?

For those who have frequented Burger King locations across the Hudson Valley over the years, have you by any chance noticed that their portions have gone down? if so, do you feel that the restaurant has cheated you and that you are not getting your money’s worth?

Burger King, like many fast food chains, has recently made a few additions to its menu, leading the Ch’King Chicken Sandwich. The Ch’King is described as a hand-breaded chicken fillet, with pickles and a “savory signature sauce” on their grilled potato bun. Haven’t we heard this before? But there is also the Spicy Ch’King! The hand-breaded part is basically the equivalent of how they market their flame-grilled burgers.
