A United States woman has sued the makers of a mac and cheese dish.
Kraft Heinz Food has been sued by Amanda Ramirez after she said the mac and cheese dish she cooked took longer than the 3.5 minutes they said it would take to be “ready”.
Ramirez said the duration advertised doesn’t include the preparation time. Opening the lid and sauce pouch, adding the water and stirring, combined with the time in the microwave took longer.
She claims that she wouldn’t have paid so much for the product had she known it would take longer than advertised for the meal to be ready.
The food manufacturer has said her lawsuit, in which she claims $5 million from them, will see them come out with their guns blazing.
In a statement released by the company, a Kraft spokesperson said “we are aware of this frivolous lawsuit and will strongly defend against the allegations in the complaint”.
Metro reports that Ramirez’s lawsuit also asked Kraft to “cease its deceptive advertising” and “be made to engage in a corrective advertising campaign”.
