WINNIPEG - Wendy's has been known for the iconic slogan "Where's the Beef," but one Wendy's in Canada has been told to stop the sale of a very beefy burger.
The T-Rex burger, a nine-patty monstrosity, has been pulled from the menu of a restaurant in Manitoba.
About a whopping 3,000 calories, the burger carried more calories than most people eat in a day, along with 200 grams of fat and 6,000 grams of sodium, equivalent to the amount most adults consume in four days, CTV reported.
The restaurant manager said two or three of the T-Rex burgers were sold a day, until the ad hit the Internet.
Wendy's shut down the rogue campaign after that.
"For obvious reasons, Wendy's of Brandon neither condones nor promotes the idea of anyone consuming a nine-patty hamburger in one sitting," said Barb Barker, an administrative assistant for Wendy's in Brandon said in a statement.
