  • Judge tosses $5M suit over McDonald’s Quarter Pounder with Cheese

    11/10/2018 8:04:15 AM PST · by lowbridge · 41 replies ^ | November 8, 2018 | Alexandra Deabler
    In May, the South Florida couple, Cynthia Kissner and Leonard Werner, filed the suit, complaining they had been charged the full price for a Quarter Pounder with Cheese, even though they requested the burger not have cheese. Kissner and Werner argued that hamburgers and cheeseburgers are different prices on the McDonald’s menu, but when they order a Quarter Pounder without the extra dairy, they’re still forced to pay the same amount. According to the lawsuit, McDonald’s used to sell four different Quarter Pounder options, two of which came without cheese and cost between 30 and 90 cents less, the Miami Herald reported....

    McDonald's is hoping a big new breakfast sandwich will help bring in more customers. Triple Breakfast Stacks will hit menus on November 1. They're modified versions of McDonald's popular Egg McMuffin -- they will include two slices of American cheese, two sausage patties, bacon and an egg, The sandwiches are available on a McMuffin, biscuit, or McGriddles cakes. The new items are designed to help McDonald's solve a problem: Fewer Americans are eating at the fast food chain. A new breakfast could help bring them back. In a statement on Tuesday, the company said that the items are inspired by...

    McDonald’s logged its 13th consecutive month of positive same-store sales and topped Wall Street profit and revenue expectations for the third quarter. Shares in the world’s biggest burger chain defied a major sell-off in U.S. markets before the opening bell Tuesday, rising more than 2 percent. The company earned $1.64 billion, or $2.10 per share. That’s 12 cents better than industry analysts had projected, according to a survey by Zacks Investment Research. Revenue of $5.37 billion, though down from the same period last year, also beat expectations. The company has been turning company-owned restaurants into franchises, which pulls on its...

    If you’ve ever gone out of your way to get to a McDonald’s just to satisfy a craving for their tongue-tingling Coca-Cola, you know how special the fast food giant’s soda is. The Coca-Cola from McDonald’s manages to taste crisper, sharper, even fresher than the same drink from other fast-food restaurants. It’s almost as if they make the Coke taste better so you’ll come in for a “medium Coke, please” and decide, “sure, I’ll take a medium fry.” (Who among us hasn’t?) Truth is, the Coke from McDonald’s isn’t magic. They just use really smart storage tactics and clever drink-mixing...

    Last summer Tanya Harrell was working in McDonald’s in Gretna, Louisiana, when she says a co-worker started making unwanted sexual advances. A colleague she occasionally gave lifts to started touching her inappropriately at work, grabbing her breasts and backside and asking her to touch his penis. “I felt totally exposed, as if I did not have a skin or shell. I felt like I was outside my own body, watching what was happening,” she said in a complaint filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). When she complained Harrell said her managers did not take it seriously and suggested...

    • McDonald’s has been serving McGriddles — breakfast sandwiches with two little pancakes for buns — for years, and now the chain is taking its sweet-and-savory morning item to a higher level. Mickey D’s has introduced the French toast McGriddle for a test run at some 200 locations in Minnesota. Not only does this dish innovate by tucking the fillings inside two slices of French toast, it brings bacon and sausage together on the same sandwich. • Speaking of McDonald’s, it seems the Golden Arches has decided its table service and self-ordering kiosks are the way of the future.

    The number of non-homeless people sleeping in McDonald’s restaurants across Hong Kong in southeast China has increased six-fold over the past five years, a new study has found. The study, organized by Junior Chamber International’s Tai Ping Shan, was conducted in June and discovered that 334 people have slept in a McDonald’s restaurant nightly over the past three months — a six-fold increase from a study conducted in 2013, which showed only 57 people routinely slept in McDonald’s. According to the research, reported by South China Morning Post, 84 of 110 24-hour fast food branches had seen regular overnight sleepers....

    Talk about supersizing it. The bidding war that erupted over a Daily Beast story published July 28 about a decadelong scam involving the McDonald's Monopoly contest has resulted in one of the most lucrative rights deals for a single article, sources with knowledge of the deal tell The Hollywood Reporter. In the end, it was 20th Century Fox and Ben Affleck and Matt Damon's Pearl Street Films' bid of $1 million — a huge sum for an 8,700-word web feature — that beat out other bids from Universal, Netflix and Warner Bros.

And here are some of the things that are banned or will be banned in the City by the Bay. Straws. Fur coats. Bottled water. Eating at work. Vaping liquids. Upholstered furniture. Plastic bags. Pet stores. Electric scooters. Coffee cups and packing peanuts. Tropical fish. The McDonald’s Happy Meal. If you can think of something, San Francisco has already banned it. Or will be banning it soon. North Korea with a tech industry and some leftover Victorian architecture (which it’s banning tour buses...

    A pregnant woman was served a cleaning agent in a cup rather than the latte she ordered from a McDonald's in southern Alberta. Sarah Douglas was taking her son to a baseball tournament on Sunday morning when she went through a drive-thru at the McDonald's restaurant on University Drive W. in Lethbridge and ordered a latte. As she drove onto Highway 3, she took a sip. "I immediately had to put my hazard lights on and pull over and spit it out and rinse my mouth out with ... water," said Douglas, who is more than seven months pregnant with...

    A brutal video of a McDonald’s worker beating up a female customer who apparently “disrespected” her mom surfaced on Thursday. The video begins with the visitor throwing a milkshake at the employee who is angrily marching toward her. The worker grabs the woman, who is wearing just a small black tank top and gray shorts, and starts pounding her head on a table. The worker throws the customer around so brutally that one of her breasts falls out of her top. The larger woman then pummels the milkshake thrower with wild, swinging blows before tossing her onto a cushioned seat.

    Documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock first shot to national attention with his 2004 film Super Size Me. He ate nothing but McDonald’s food and chronicled his ill health during that time. Spurlock and his film became a cultural phenomenon. He received the Best Director award at Sundance and was nominated for an Academy award. But what if McDonald’s wasn’t the real problem with his health? Each day during his month-long experiment, he ate all his meals only at McDonald’s, and he ate large servings by any restaurant’s standards. No one forced him. By the experiment’s end, he reported experiencing shakes (as...
