    Medium rare burger pizza.

    "Medium rare" is a term used to indicate how well done a piece of meat is. When used in conjunction with the term "burger" one can assume the burger is made of meat.

    Lie is the right word.

    All called burgers, though very obvious not meat (that's their target audience) and always, in my experience, stocked separate from meat.
    All of those qualify their burger patties as being non-meat.

    No it isn't. You can't use the word assume and lie/truth in the same sentence. Yes it was tricky and misleading, but not a lie.

    The fact that is was misleading makes it a lie. Although all lies are a commission, the act of silence while they knew the ingredients had been changed is, in itself, a form of communication and a lie https://plato.stanford.edu/archives/...ng-definition/

    "Medium Rare" is a term which is used to describe doneness of meat and not vegetables. By using such a term they are implicitely claiming that whatever they are describing as "medium rare" is meat.

    Lie is the right word.

    "Medium rare" isn't a legally defined term. maybe they mean their pizza is somewhat hard to find?

    misleading yes, lie no.

    A term doesn't have to be legally defined in order to form part of a lie.

    legally/clearly.

    there's enough wiggle room there.

    Wiggle room for a scumbag lawyer or morally bankrupt sociopath. We know how it was implied and can see it for the lie that it is.

    If someone makes an intentionally misleading statement, that constitutes a lie. Again, see: Stanford's explaination of lying by omission.

    Go on...

    There's precedent in American law also that making a misleading statement by omission breaks the False Claims Act, FYI https://bergermontague.com/false-and...se-claims-act/

    edit: Oh, hey look, I opened one... Well digitally https://www.dictionary.com/browse/lying

    adjective
    telling or containing lies; deliberately untruthful; deceitful; false: a lying report.
    Unless you're going to argue it's not deceitful or deliberately untruthful....

    the stanford article you mentioned pretty much lays out in the first paragraph that the current dictionary definition of lying is incomplete because <rest of article>.

    precedent has nothing to do with it, it's linguistics/semantics.

    "lying by omission" does not make semantic sense to me (although I obviously understand the meaning). it wouldn't even fit that definition which you quoted.

    Oh come on, it was at the very least deceitful which is one of the definitions of lying.
