SEATTLE, U.S.A., May 25, 2001: An apology by McDonald's Corp. for any confusion about the beef flavoring in its U.S. french fries won't affect three lawsuits, the lawyer who filed the cases says. Harish Bharti would continue to pursue the cases he has brought in King County Superior Court and in British Columbia and California. He took issue with the language of the apology. "From my point of view, 'confusion' is not the appropriate term," Bharti said. "They launched a media campaign of deception."
