A woman in America is suing KFC for $20 million because she claimed the bucket she was given on a store visit was only half as full as the one she had seen in an advertisement. Seems fair.
Anna Wurtzburger, 64, from Hudson Valley in New York has apparently hired a lawyer in order to file the lawsuit against the fast food chain. She’s suing for $20 million (about £16 million) despite the fact that the original bucket that caused all this aggravation cost her a mere £20 (about $16).
Imagine the amount of fried chicken $20 million could buy!
Wurtzburger was reportedly so furious with KFC that she returned two good-will gift certificates they had sent to her in an effort to diffuse the situation.
She told The New York Post: “I came home and said, ‘Where’s the chicken?’ I thought I was going to have a couple of meals.
“You get half a bucket! That’s false advertising, and it doesn’t feed the whole family. They’re small pieces!
“They say it feeds the whole family … They’re showing a bucket that’s overflowing with chicken,”
KFC had told Miss Wurtzburger that the cardboard buckets in the advertisements appeared more full than normal so that the customer could see the product.
KFC told The Post they considered the lawsuit “meritless”.
