Tuna Payouts And Other Weird Commercial Lawsuits
In the world of commercial class-action lawsuits, settling in tuna is not as strange as you might think.By Evan Thomas | August 28, 2015
StarKist has settled a class-action lawsuit alleging it under-filled its cans of tuna, starting as far back as 2009.
Shoppers who were shorted several tenths of an ounce of tuna per can are now eligible to receive a payout: in cash, or in cold, hard tuna.
StarKist will pay out as much as $50 worth of tuna to affected customers. Assuming $1.50 a can, that could be 30-plus cans of tuna. Customers also have the option of receiving $25 in cash instead.
