FREDERICK , Md., May 21 (UPI) -- Some bacon fans are getting the authorities involved after they allegedly paid up to $125 for an all-you-can-eat event and only received a few strips.

Multiple Beer Bacon Music festival-goers have complained to the Maryland attorney general's office after attending the two-day festival in Frederick.

More than 5,000 people attended the festival and they were supposed to get a chance to indulge in two tons of bacon and more than 100 varieties of beer.

Irene Hafner waited for over an hour-and-a-half for her shot at the bacon bar and walked away empty-mouthed. "Not one piece of bacon got in my mouth," she told the Frederick News-Post. "I got a T-shirt, a turkey sandwich and probably a total of one beer for $125."

Event promoter Kevin MacFawn said that at least 35 people have asked for refunds but that it's uncertain whether those requests will be granted.

An attorney who attended the event, James Braswell, said that MacFawn would be hearing from him via a complaint mentioning unfair trade practices and fraud. "If one is going to advertise all-you-can-eat bacon, you better have all-you-can-eat bacon," he said.
