A Chicago man has filed a class-action lawsuit against Buffalo Wild Wings, claiming the restaurant chain falsely advertises its boneless wings as the real deal, when in reality, he believes the wings are nothing more than chicken nuggets. According to court documents, the plaintiff, Aimen Halim, filed a complaint Friday in the U.S. District Court of Northern Illinois against Buffalo Wild Wings and its parent company Inspire Brands Inc.
… Halim claims Buffalo Wild Wings’ description of the product leads customers to believe their boneless wings are deboned chicken wings made up completely of chicken wing meat, when the product is actually slices of chicken breast deep fried like chicken wings, and are compositionally more like chicken nuggets.
… At Papa Johns, the product is called Chicken Poppers, while at Domino’s, they are called “boneless chicken.”
UPDATE FROM BUFFALO WILD WINGS:
Customer Aimen Halim filed a lawsuit against Buffalo Wild Wings claiming that the chain's boneless wings are "more akin, in composition, to a chicken nugget rather than a chicken wing."
Boneless wings are usually made from chunks of chicken breast, not from a de-boned wing.
Buffalo Wild Wings has hit back over Twitter, saying: "It's true. Our boneless wings are all white meat chicken. Our hamburgers contain no ham. Our buffalo wings are 0% buffalo."
The court dismissed the lawsuit on Monday, but Halim has until March 27th to file an amended complaint.
