Chipotle Customers Say They Were Duped By Calorie Claims Law360, New York (November 22, 2016, 5:30 PM EST) — Three diet-conscious Californians are claiming that Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. misleads consumers about the calorie amount in its chorizo burritos, saying in a proposed class action in state court that there’s no way they contain only 300 calories. The consumers leading the suit say that Chipotle’s menu boards led them to believe that the chorizo burrito — released earlier this year — contained far fewer calories than it actually does. One of the named plaintiffs, David Desmond, said that he picked the burrito because he thoughtRead More →

Chipotle sued over 300-calorie burrito claim that seemed too good to be true If the thought of chowing down on a sausage burrito with just 300 calories seems like a dream come true, you’re not alone. Three hungry men apparently thought they had entered burrito heaven last month when they each spotted a 300-calorie chorizo burrito on the menus of different Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurants in the Los Angeles area. But what seemed like a calorie-counter’s dream became a belt-busting nightmare, according to their lawyer. After consuming the $7.15 burrito at a Brentwood Chipotle, David Desmond reported feeling “excessively full” and that the calorie countRead More →

Chipotle challenged over misleading 300-calorie burrito signage If you think a Chipotle burrito consisting of tortilla, white rice, cheese, tomato salsa, black beans and chorizo can’t possibly add up to 300 calories, you’re not wrong. Three Los Angeles customers are filing a class-action lawsuit against Chipotle, claiming the restaurant misrepresented the calorie count of its new chorizo burrito, which actually adds up to about 1,050 calories, based on Chipotle’s online nutrition calculator. One of the customers said he was misled by the 300 calorie sign, and “felt excessively full” after consuming the burrito. Chipotle apologized to a different customer via tweet for the confusing sign,Read More →

Los Angeles-Area Customers Sue Chipotle Over ‘300-Calorie’ Chorizo Burrito Chipotle’s chorizo burrito as diet food? If you read the description of the menu item, available since October, you certainly wouldn’t think so: It packs chicken, pork sausage, rice, beans, and cheese into a tortilla. Except that same sign also said “300 calories.” And so three customers who bought the burrito in Los Angeles this month are suing. According to a statement from Abir Cohen Treyzon Salo, which announced the filing of a class action complaint against the fast food restaurant last Thursday, the suit alleges “inaccurate reporting of nutritional values of individual menu items itRead More →

Chipotle customers sue because burritos had too many calories Chipotle customers are suing because of overstuffed burritos, saying that the company’s calorie counts were full of it. A lawsuit filed in California court last week says that the chain misrepresented the nutritional value and that consumers were “lulled into a false belief” that they were eating healthy. The menu item uniting the case’s three plaintiffs is the Chorizo Burrito, which the fast casual joint began selling earlier this year and advertised as 300 calories on overhead menus. All three customers said that they ordered the spicy sausage meal at different locations earlier this month becauseRead More →
