McDonald's Gluten Complaint

I tracked down the complaint filed by Dale & Pakenas against McDonald's based on the previously undisclosed gluten; you can download it here [PDF].  Of note, the suit is a class action, and not one limited to people with celiac disease (which the named plaintiff has):

(You can mentally insert the "[sic]" after the "it's.")

Notably, Dale & Pakenas is also one of the firms who sued based on the inaccuracies in A Million Little Pieces.

Update: While looking around a bit for a copy of the complaint, I noticed that in Cook County, Illinois alone, three class suits have been filed over the Frey book.  I note, happily, that the named plaintiff in the McDonald's suit is not also the named plaintiff in the Frey suit:
