Burger King faces lawsuit claiming Whopper too small

Burger King must face a lawsuit that alleges it makes its Whopper burger appear larger on its menus than it is in reality, a US judge has ruled. The lawsuit accuses the fast food giant of misleading customers by showing the burger with a meatier patty and ingredients that "Overflow over the bun". "The plaintiffs' claims are false," Burger King told the BBC. Rivals McDonald's and Wendy's are facing a similar lawsuit in the US. The class action lawsuit against Burger King alleged that the Whopper was made to look 35% larger, with more than double the amount of meat compared to what was actually served to customers. "The flame-grilled beef patties portrayed in our advertising are the same patties used in the millions of Whopper sandwiches we serve to guests nationwide," a Burger King spokesperson said in a statement after the ruling. The Burger King website describes the Whopper as "The burger to rule them all", that contains a "Real meaty" beef patty, among other ingredients.
