Group Wants To Sue McDonald's

June 22, 2010, 5:10 PM by Kelli Grant

McDonald's is under attack again, this time for the toys it puts in its Happy Meals.

A nonprofit health group is threatening a lawsuit, saying the burger chain markets to children and then fills them with junk food.

The Center for Science in Public Interest is giving McDonald's 30 days to stop including toys in Happy Meals. After that, it's planning to sue. The group acknowledged that some Happy Meals offer healthier choices, but say a typical combination of cheeseburger, fries and chocolate milk adds up to 700 calories.

“McDonald's Happy Meals website says, quote: 'You want the very best for your kids and so do we.' That's McNonsense. McDonald's wants your money. And they're going to go around your back, try to use your kids to manipulate you to go into the restaurant to get your money. That's the bottom line. Unless the company changes its ways, we're going to court,” Michael Jacobson with CSPI said.

California is already a step ahead.  Santa Clara County voted in April to ban toys from high calorie kids' meals, saying there's nothing happy about childhood obesity.
