Warning Sought for Huge Hamburger

Warning Sought for Huge Hamburger

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (April 1) - The West Michigan Whitecaps say they have no plans to put a warning label on an enormous new hamburger they’re selling this season — despite a vegan advocacy group’s request to do just that.

Susan Levin, a staff dietitian for the Washington-based Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, sent a letter to the Grand Rapids minor-league team on Tuesday. She’s asking that the 4,800-calorie burger be labeled a “dietary disaster” that increases the risk of cancer and heart disease.

The 4-pound, $20 burger features five beef patties, five slices of cheese, nearly a cup of chili and liberal doses of salsa and corn chips — all on an 8-inch bun.
Whitecaps spokesman Mickey Graham says the burger is a gimmick that’s being promoted as a very unhealthy menu item.

Why not share it with your friends? :thumbup

I would have thought the dangers were obvious no?

That is nothing

Try a 6lb burger :smiley:

I’m with Springsteen. Surely it’s beyond obvious that something like that is not healthy…?


Well apparently we Americans need labels on everything… for instance if we ask for a hot drink, we have to be reminded it’s hot. :smiley24:

Ever look at a latter and the warning labels on it?

It is a wonder how they can even sell one

Give me a fucking break. They aren’t the first ones to make huge hamburgers… One place called Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub makes one thats 15 fucking pounds. Most of the people that try and eat these colossel burgers are pro eaters who do contests.

Bill Engvall does a pretty humorous routine on warning labels… :smiley:
