What’s The Wild Planet Foods Tuna Settlement About
Wild Planet manufactures and sells tuna products throughout the United States and it is most likely available at a variety of merchants near you. If you eat tuna, it is possible that you have purchased their products in the past. Plaintiffs allege that Wild Planet shorted the amount of tuna in its cans, under-filling them in violation of state and federal law.
Wild Planet denies that it did anything wrong, and the Court has not made any ruling on the factual allegations in the lawsuits.
All residents of the United States of America who, from November 5, 2011 to May 12, 2017, purchased any can of branded tuna produced by, for, or on behalf Wild Planet, including cans sold under the “Wild Planet” brand and the “Sustainable Seas” brand.
