New York, USA, June 12, 2001: After Seattle vegetarians, it is now the turn of Texas Hindus to charge fast-food giant McDonald's in a class-action lawsuit over the issue of beef-flavored french fries. The lawsuit alleges that from 1990 until the present the defendants intentionally concealed from the plaintiffs the use of beef in their fries and other products and advertised these products as containing vegetable oil and/or natural flavoring. Under the Deceptive Trade Practices Act of Texas, McDonald's has been charged with "causing confusion or misunderstanding as to the source of goods and services."
