As the hardworking staff noted several weeks ago, on June 22 the endlessly outraged Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) served McDonald’s a notice of its intent to sue in several states (including Massachusetts), demanding that “McDonald’s USA, LLC (‘McDonald’s’) immediately stop using toys to market Happy Meals to young children.”
The notice ended with this:
CSPI will postpone filing suit if it can obtain McDonald’s agreement to stop its use of toys to market Happy Meals.
This offer of settlement will remain open for 30 days from the date of this letter, after which it shall be automatically withdrawn and become null and void.
Given McDonald’s contentious response, the hardworking staff anticipated swift legal action by CSPI once the month-long grace period expired last Thursday.
But so far, no UnHappy Meals suit.
Thankfully, CSPI is still active on other litigious fronts.
