McDonald’s Happy Meal Toys Assailed in Lawsuit

McDonald’s Corp., the world’s biggest restaurant chain, baits, exploits and ultimately harms children by offering toys with its Happy Meals, a Washington-based consumer advocacy group claimed in a lawsuit.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest, in a complaint that its litigation director Stephen Gardner said was filed today at a state courthouse in San Francisco, accuses the company of deceptive marketing and business practices. The filing could not immediately be confirmed.
