According to the lawsuit, Wild Planet Foods Inc. had shorted their cans with tuna by filling below the 5-ounce weight stated on their labels.
When the plaintiff, Ehder Soto, purchased many cans of tuna in 2012 & 2013 he had them tested by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and revealed that the actual tuna content of the cans tested was 30% less than the federally mandated weight.
When a second plaintiff came forward with similar claims the lawsuit took affect raising claims that Wild Food Planet Inc. was violating the federal law, California common law, and California consumer protection statutes.
After months of litigation, a settlement was reached in May of 2017 of $1.7 million.
According to the settlement agreement, Class Members need only submit a filled-out Claim Form. No receipt for proof of purchase is necessary.
All U.S. residents who between Nov. 5, 2011, and May 12, 2017, purchased a can of tuna under the Wild Planet or Sustainable Seas brand are eligible to claim an award of up to $29!
