Bronx Woman Suing TGI Friday’s $5 Million For Selling ‘Fake’ Potato Skins

A very dissatisfied customer is now suing TGI Friday’s, claiming they’re selling fake food.

Solange Troncoso of The Bronx said she purchased a bag of TGI Fridays Sour Cream and Onion Potato Skins from a Bronx corner store for $1.99, but claims that she wouldn’t have done so had she known the product didn’t contain real potato skins!

“The presence of potato skins imparts a further value in the eyes of reasonable consumers,” the New York Post quotes the complaint.

In the suit, Troncoso claims that using the terminology “potato skins” suggests a healthier snack than just potato chips.

“The Idaho Potato Commission and others inside and outside the industry have associated potato skins with healthy eating since they started appearing on restaurant menus a half-century ago.”

Troncoso insutaies that the company called the snacks potato skins while selling another dish with the same name at their restaurant deceived customers into buying an “inferior product.”

She filed the lawsuit as a class-action with the hope that other consumers would join.
