If you order a Quarter Pounder with Cheese at McDonald's, you'll pay for the sandwich . . . let's say it'll run you $4. And if you order the QuarterPounder WITHOUT cheese, it'll cost you . . . the same $4.
And two people in Fort Lauderdale, Florida think that's unfair . . . and maybe even illegal. A woman named Cynthia Kissner and a guy named Leonard Werner filed a class-action lawsuit against McDonald's earlier this month.
And they're claiming that McDonald's is cheating all of us by not knocking anything off the price if we order a Quarter Pounder without cheese.
Their argument boils down to something pretty simple: A hamburger costs less at McDonald's than a cheeseburger, so, clearly, the cheese has SOME monetary value. So why wouldn't you get a discount if you have them hold the cheese?
They're looking for at least $5 million in damages.
