Fat Lawsuits
The fast-food industry responds to some critics.Statement From Wendy's
Wendy's has always offered a wide variety of quality menu items, and that's something our customers tell us they appreciate. For more than 20 years, we've offered salads, baked potatoes and lower-fat chili in addition to hamburgers, fries and Frosties.Statement From McDonald's

This is nothing more than a frivolous lawsuit. Its claims are ridiculous. Common sense tells you that it makes no sense. McDonald's serves quality food. Our menu features choice and variety with lots of options for consumers.

"Meanwhile, McDonald's will continue to do what we've been doing for 30 years, providing industry-leading nutrition information to customers about our menu offerings so that they can make informed choices. Along with posters or brochures at our restaurants, customers can also access this comprehensive nutrition information at our web site, www.mcdonalds.com.

The vast majority of nutrition professionals say that McDonald's food can be, and is a part of a healthy diet based on the sound nutrition principles of balance, variety and moderation.From the National Restaurant Association, on behalf of Burger King

This sort of action gives frivolous a bad name. It is senseless, baseless and ridiculous to compare food to anything addictive.

Restaurants have a wide variety of choices on their menus, and people make the choice to eat what they want and when they want every day. This is all about personal responsibility and moderation. And eating smart and staying fit are the keys to a healthy lifestyle.

Obviously, the lawsuit is a blatant attempt to capitalize on the recent publicity and news stories on the growing rates of obesity, and this type of improper litigation is a clear abuse of our judicial system.Statement From KFC
Eating sensibly combined with appropriate exercise is the best solution for a healthy lifestyle. KFC offers a variety of menu items for those who want more healthy choices, including: 'Tender Roast' and 'Honey Barbeque' sandwiches, corn-on-the-cob, barbecue baked beans, and green beans.
