Woman Sues After Mac-And-Cheese Takes More Than 3.5 Minutes To Make

  • “The statement of ‘ready in 3½ minutes’ is false and misleading because the Product takes longer than 3-and-a-half minutes to prepare for consumption,” the lawsuit stated.
  • “Consumers seeing ‘ready in 3½ minutes’ will believe it represents the total amount of time it takes to prepare the Product, meaning from the moment it is unopened to the moment it is ready for consumption,” it stated. 
  • The lawsuit also alleged that the macaroni product is able to be marketed at a higher cost because of its claims about how soon the food can be ready to eat.
