KFC Sued $20 Million Over False Advertising

A picture is worth a thousand words. For Anna Wurtzburger, it could be worth millions of dollars.


Wurtzburger filed a lawsuit seeking 20 million dollars in damages over she what she deemed as false advertising by the fast-food giant.

The 64-year-old from Hudson Valley in the state of New York bought a $20 bucket of chicken from KFC over the summer and was disappointed to find it looked much different than what’s in the chain’s ads.

“I came home and said, ‘Where’s the chicken?’ I thought I was going to have a couple of meals,” she said in an interview with The New York Post.

“They say it feeds the whole family … They’re showing a bucket that’s overflowing with chicken,” she said. “That’s false advertising, and it doesn’t feed the whole family. They’re small pieces.”

When Wurtzburger called KFC’s Georgia headquarters to complain, she was told that the chicken was portrayed prominently on the commercial “so that the public could see the chicken.”

KFC said that the case has no merit.
