Chicken Sandwich Costs McDonald's 700K

DEARBORN (WWJ/AP) - McDonald's and a franchise owner have reached a tentative settlement in a lawsuit alleging that food at a Dearborn restaurant wasn't prepared according to Islamic dietary laws as advertised.

McDonald's and Finley's Management deny any liability but have agreed to pay $700,000 - saying it's in their best interests.

The lawsuit alleged that Ahmed Ahmed bought a chicken sandwich in 2011 at a Dearborn McDonald's but found it didn't meet Islamic dietary requirements.
