Happy Meals raise concern among consumer groups
WASHINGTON (KGO) -- McDonald's could soon face a lawsuit over its Happy Meals.
The Center for Science in the Public Interest wants the fast food chain to take the junk food out of its Happy Meals -- or else it claims it will file suit.
The Washington-based Consumer Advocacy Group says McDonalds deceptively markets toys to children in unhealthy meals.
The fast-food chain says it is proud of its Happy Meals, claiming they offer a variety of wholesome food and toys of high quality.
Santa Clara county recently voted to ban restaurants from giving away the toys and other freebies that often come with meals aimed at kids.
