(Scroll down for video) A man said that he was surprised to learn that the McDonald's mozzarella sticks contain no cheese despite claiming that they are 100 percent real cheese.

Now, Chris Howe of California, filed a lawsuit against the company, demanding $5 million as compensation for the false claims.

Howe alleges that the sticks are filled with a substance that is made from starch, which is a violation of the federal standards of mozzarella cheese.

Federal guidelines prohibit the use of starch in products that are labeled as mozzarella.

According to the lawsuit, McDonald’s reduce its costs by using a filler and therefore, had used unfair and fraudulent advertising on their menu, which contained mozzarella cheese sticks.

McDonald’s refutes these claims, saying the company has not engaged in deceptive practices, saying that their mozzarella sticks are made with 100 percent cheese.

A women’s rights group said that they were surprised and baffled by the decision.

The decision ignores the sensitivity and dignity of working women, and at the same time allows sexual violence in the workplace, the Italian Labor Union said.

Like all waiters and waitresses, he depends on tips to pay his bills. Therefore, when Wayman realized that a customer left a $20 tip, he was very excited.

The $20 bill was placed under a ketchup bottle. However, upon closer inspection, his enthusiasm turned to frustration after he realized that the money was fake.

The customer did not actually leave any tip, but rather a religious pamphlet that was disguised to look like money. The pamphlet recommended Wayman seek faith and start reading the Bible.

“Don't be fooled! There is something you can have more valuable than money,” read the pamphlet. On the back of the pamphlet was an eight-paragraph argument for why Wayman should buy a bible and become Christian.

Wayman took photos of the fake $20 bill and posted it to Facebook with the caption: “someone seriously left this as my tip today. Pissed is an understatement. I was so excited when I saw $20.”
