A New York City woman sued TGI Friday's Inc. on Wednesday, claiming the company had engaged in deceptive advertising practices by selling potato skins.
The proposed class action suit filed by Solange Troncoso claims that the bagged snacks are appealing to some consumers because of the perceived health benefits of potato skins. The lawsuit claims that these are "skinned" and "potato flakes", "the lawsuit claims, citing the products". It goes on to allege that in the industrial creation of potato flakes and potato starch, potatoes are peeled.

The lawsuit claims that the "potato skins" branding attempts to capitalize on health-conscious consumers. "The lawsuit reads."
Troncoso filed the lawsuit after buying a $ 1.99 bag of TGI Fridays Sour Cream & Onion Potato Skins chips from a Bronx convenience store in June 2018, the lawsuit says.
