Taco Bell is the fast-casual Mexican food chain that brings so much joy into people’s lives, including my own. It has tons of different menu options, and has been proven to not only be the healthiest fast food option out there, but also the most customizable fast food option out there.
Recently, they’ve been dealing with a class action lawsuit. They are being sued for false advertising because one New York resident claimed that what they ordered didn’t contain the amount of fillings that it was being advertised to. Let’s see what happened next…
Do you think Taco Bell should be sued for false advertising?
Last September, Taco Bell had announced the revival of their Mexican Pizza…again. Meet the famous New York resident that we’ve been talking about, Frank Siragusa. He was excited to order one of these upon their revival; however, he stated that it “only contained half of the amount of beans and beef advertised online and in-store”. He also claimed that other T-Bell menu items, such as the Crunchwrap Supreme, Grande Crunchwrap, and the Veggie Mexican Pizza “have also overstated the amount of filling in advertisements by ‘at least double the amount'”.
Here’s why he even brought up the class action lawsuit in the first place:
"“These practices are ‘unfair and deceptive’ and are especially concerning amid rising food prices…Meat prices are very high and many consumers, especially lower income consumers, are struggling financially”."
A lot of people that have been reading up about this class action lawsuit are wondering what exactly it is that Frank Siragusa is seeking to get out of it. Well, folks, the answer may shock you almost as much as it did me. Frank is seeing $5 million dollars…is that really necessary?
