(FOX NEWS) – Two McDonald's clients in Florida are suing the fast-food giant for a hefty $ 5 million, because they say they are unfairly charged for cheese that they are not on Burgers want.  Cynthia Kissner and Leonard Werner argue that hamburgers and cheeseburgers have different prices on the McDonald's menu, but if they order a Quarter Pounder without the extra dairy, they still have to pay the same amount.

"McDonald's is unjustifiably enriched by these practices because it receives a payment for cheese that it does not deliver to its customers," the lawsuit states.
