PITTSBURGH, PA - Tuna lovers unite! At least they are united for a class action lawsuit against Starkist.
Two and a half years ago, one man accused the Starkist Tuna Company of deliberately under-filling each can by a few tenths of an ounce. Now, he has reeled in other fish fans who bought cans of tuna.
If you happen to be one of them, Starkist is on the hook. And while not admitting to doing anything fishy, the 54-year-old company is ready to settle the lawsuit...and you just may want to take the bait.
TunaLawsuit.com is the place to go if you have bought at least one five-ounce can of any of the these Starkist products: Chunk Light Tuna in Water, Chunk Light Tuna in Oil, Solid White Tuna in Water and Solid White Tuna in oil.
If you file a claim, you could get 25 dollars in cash or 50 bucks in free tuna. There is a catch: you are only eligible to fill in the online form if you bought your cans between February 2009 and October 2014.
If this sounds fishy to you, just remember, nobody expects you to still have your receipts. So, you are on the honor system. Basically, you must tell the truth or you could be up to your gills in perjury charges. In other words, Starkist would simply say, "Sorry, Charlie!"
