Buffalo Wild Wings sued because their ‘wings’ are breast meat

When a restaurant frys a piece of chicken breast, coats it in buffalo sauce, and calls it a wing, is that a trivial semantic glitch or consumer fraud?

A new federal lawsuit makes no secret of it: The lawsuit alleges the practice is a fraud and that companies like Buffalo Wild Wings are tricking customers into selling chicken wings that aren’t actually wings.

Chicago’s Aimen Halim filed a lawsuit against Buffalo Wild Wings on Friday, claiming he visited the Buffalo Wild Wings facility in Mount Prospect, Ill., in January and ordered “boneless wings.” .

“Unbeknownst to plaintiff and other consumers, the products are not wings at all, but rather slices of chicken breast meat fried like wings,” the lawsuit states. “Indeed, the products are more akin, in their composition, to a chicken nugget than to a chicken wing.”
