mcdonald's fast food restaurant exteriorMcDonald’s Corporation has been hit with a class action lawsuit by a customer who claims that the restaurant charged him $1.89 for a Sausage McMuffin, even though they advertise the price on the “value menu” at $1.

In September 2018, plaintiff Sean Dabir states that he visited a McDonald’s in California and was shown an advertisement that the Sausage McMuffin was part of a value menu and would cost $1. 

Based on the advertised price, the plaintiff decided that he would purchase two Sausage McMuffins.

However, after leaving the restaurant, Dabir says he noticed that he was actually charged $1.89 for each Sausage McMuffin.

“Had Plaintiff known that Defendant would charge Plaintiff more than Defendant had represented for the Class Products, he would not have purchased the Class Products from Defendant’s restaurant,” the McDonald’s class action lawsuit states.

The plaintiff claims that he was never informed, either in writing or orally, that he would be charged more than the advertised price before he purchased the breakfast item.

In addition, the plaintiff argues that he felt “ripped off and cheated” by McDonald’s for charging more than what was represented to him. 

Dabir believes that McDonald’s will continue to trick customers into purchasing Sausage McMuffins at a higher price than advertised.

“As a result of Defendant’s fraudulent practices, described herein, Plaintiff has suffered economic loss, emotional distress, wasted time, and anxiety,” the McDonald’s class action lawsuit argues.

The McDonald’s class action lawsuit states, “Consumers rely on the representations and advertisements of restaurants in order to know which products to purchase. Details as to the price are important and material to consumers at the time they purchase food from a particular restaurant.”

The plaintiff alleges that McDonald’s knew that the representations that were made about the price of the Sausage McMuffin was not true and intentionally made them in order to deceive their customers.

The McDonald’s class action lawsuit alleges that the restaurant will continue to engage in these misleading practices and will not stop unless forced to do so by a court.

“Defendant’s conduct will continue to cause irreparable injury to consumers unless enjoined or restrained,” the McDonald’s class action lawsuit argues.

In addition, the plaintiff contends that McDonald’s actions only benefit them and provide no benefit to any consumer.

“In fact, knowing that Class Products were not of this price, Defendant unfairly profited from their sale. Thus, the injury suffered by Plaintiff and the members of the Class is not outweighed by any countervailing benefits to consumers,” the McDonald’s class action lawsuit claims.

The plaintiff states that McDonald’s has violated the California Unfair Competition Law, False Advertising Law, and the Consumer Legal Remedies Act.

Potential Class Members include: “All consumers, who, between the applicable statute of limitations and the present, purchased Class Products in the state of California and were charged in excess of the price represented by Defendant.”

    I see on Television and on Billboards along the highway that McDonald’s advertises the Sausage McMuffin for $1.00, but once inside the restaurant, the price is $1.50- $1.89. I t seems as if the advertisement is just to get you into the Restaurant. To me, this is very misleading to the customer, especially those who do not check out the prices they paid for the food on the receipt.

    McDonald’s upcharged my kid’s drink in July 2017 for no reason. I called corporate and complained. They said to go get a free drink. I didn’t want a free drink. I wanted my money back. To this day, they’ve never given my money back. I have boycotted since. 1 time I was traveling and had no other choice, but them in March 2019 and I ordered a veggie burger. They charged me for a sandwich and gave me a bun with pickles and ketchup. I kid you not. I will never give them money ever again. They’re awful.
