McDonald's obesity suit tossed

U.S. judge says complaint fails to prove chain is responsible for kids' weight gain. A lawsuit alleging food from McDonald's restaurants is responsible for making people obese got thrown out by a federal judge Wednesday.

Where should the line be drawn between an individual's own responsibility to take care of herself and society's responsibility to ensure others shield her? The complaint fails to allege the McDonald's products consumed by the plaintiffs were dangerous in any way other than that which was open and obvious to a reasonable consumer," Sweet said in his ruling.


Amen! Btw, the very same can be said for tobacco companies.

"SORRY LADY but this is convenient(spell)and saves you the trouble of cooking.":eek:
What's wrong with today's mums? All children require (to stay healthy)5 portions of fruit, 5 portions of vegetables, 1 piece of meat,3 dairy produce,(?) just to maintain a healthy diet and provide a lifetime of healthy eating habits!
(my opinion only) "she has more money than sense!!!"
forgive me please🙂 children should not be subjected to eating deep-fried food (X) amount of times a week just because its an easy alternative and it saves the mum the bother of preparing food and washing up of dishes,:rolleyes:
OBESITY, is a way of life and not an illness, a struggle to change but it can be done, I feel so heart sorry for the people that have a medical reason(glans etc.)that they are big-bodied, they are to be sympathised with, but those of us who have to fry foods(beans, tomatoes, bacon, sausages etc.,) it's easy and quick!! but we all know that its unhealthy, I'll shut up now before I offend my-self as I'm not a skinny person, but I have struggled against the gaining of weight all my life, Fried food is my favourite, "I love it, but it doesn't love me." 🙂 🙂

Your children sure have a caring mom! :)

I can only agree with you. Getting obese and sueing others for your own greediness was even to much for the American legal system. It's good to know that things are "getting into proportion", lol.
