9-patty T-Rex burger shut down at Wendy's in Canada

Burger had 3,000 calories, 6,000 grams of sodium

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.
