A man in Massachusetts has reached a settlement with two Dunkin’ Donuts franchise owners after they reportedly served him a butter substitute instead of actual butter.
Jan Polanik filed a class action suit last month against more than 20 locations in Boston, saying he asked for butter on his bagel and was served a butter substitute instead.
According to his lawyer, “The main point of the lawsuit is to stop the practice of representing one thing and selling a different thing. It’s a minor thing, but at the same time, if somebody goes in and makes a point to order butter for the bagel … they don’t want margarine or some other kind of chemical substitute.”
The settlement details were not publicly released.
