No Cheese, Please


Two Floridians are suing McDonald’s for $5million because they are being forced to pay for cheese they’ve had removed from their Quarter Pounders with Cheese.

Court records revealed that Cynthia Kissner, of Broward County, and Leonard Werner, of Miami-Dade, filed a class-action lawsuit over the cheese charging issue in federal court on May 8.

According to the lawsuit, McDonald’s had previously offered four different burgers in the Quarter Pounder category. Prices for those burgers differed from between 30 to 90 cents, based on whether or not the burgers had cheese on them, the Miami Herald reports.

Two Floridians have filed a class-action lawsuit against McDonald’s over the fact that the company makes them pay for cheese that they have had removed from their Quarter Pounders

However, McDonald’s ‘at some point’ reduced the Quarter Pounder offerings on the restaurant menu, paring it down to just two options. Now, only the Quarter Pounder with Cheese and Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese are listed on the menu.

Restaurant customers who want the old Quarter Pounder without cheese option are left with having to order a Quarter Pounder with Cheese and customizing it so it prepared sans cheese.

The lawsuit states that in order for customers ‘to be able to purchase their desired product’ — the cheese-free Quarter Pounder — they ‘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.’

    They can go get Whoppers.  Those come without cheese.

    Maybe they should try this; “I’d like a quarter pounder, NO CHEESE please.” It works most times.

    Who the heck orders a burger without cheese? Sacrilege.

    Sometimes I don’t want cheese. Same with pickles. So, I ask them to leave them off on the RARE occasion that I stop at McD’s. I prefer Wendy’s, Culver’s or Five Guys. Worth the extra $$.
