A decade in which the world has been faced with a pandemic, nuclear war threats, and rising living costs, a man from the US claims that he has now encountered another crisis.
After claiming that their “boneless wings”, are really just chicken nuggets, Aimen Halim sued Buffalo Wild Wings.
Mr Halim filed his lawsuit in Illinois at a district court. He claimed that he bought the “wings” in Mount Prospect, Illinois in January.
He said he had been led to believe he was purchasing deboned wings by the description on the menu.
His lawsuit says: “Unbeknownst of Plaintiff and other consumers the Products aren’t wings at all but slices of chicken breast meat deep-fried as wings.”
“Indeed the Products are closer in composition to a chicken nugget than a chicken wings.
Plaintiff and other consumers would not have bought the Products if they had known that they were not chicken wings.
Plaintiff and consumers have suffered actual injury as a result deceptive practices of the Defendants.”
Chicago resident Halim is seeking damages, injunctive relief and restitution. Declaatory relief and any other remedies that the Court considers appropriate. However, the filing doesn’t specify a precise monetary amount.
This lawsuit reveals that similar products are sold by other companies without calling them wings.
Domino’s Pizza has a “boneless chicken” menu item. Papa Johns also offers a similar menu item, “Chicken Poppers”.

The lawsuit is intended to represent “thousands” consumers in the country who purchased the chain’s “boneless wings” at any of its more than 1,200 locations.
Buffalo Wild Wings parent company Inspire Brands are the defendants in the suit.
When asked for comment, a representative from both companies pointed out a tweet on the official account of Buffalo Wild Wings.
“It’s true. All boneless wings are made from white meat chicken. Our hamburgers contain no ham. “Our buffalo wings contain 0% buffalo,” stated the post.
