Cheeseburger bill could become law
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - February 22, 2011 (WPVI) -- Don't blame Mickey D's or the King for your gut.
That's the gist of the "cheeseburger bill" approved by a state House panel in Minnesota.
The measure would block consumers from suing fast-food chains and other food companies for their weight problems.
If passed into law, consumers couldn't blame industry for those extra pounds caused by super-sized fries, burgers or soda.
Advocates say the so-called cheeseburger bill would prevent frivolous lawsuits.
