TUNA LAWSUIT

In my mind, there’s two types of people: people who love tuna, and people who detest tuna. There is simply no in between. Luckily, I’m a lover. I think tuna is not only delicious, but a really easy way to get more lean protein into your everyday diet at a low cost.

Lucky for us, things are about to get even lower.

Consumerist.com gives us some background on the TUNA LAWSUIT. Two and a half years ago, a man who eats tuna filed a class action lawsuit against Starkist tuna. His allegation? The company is deliberately under-filling each can by a few tenths of an ounce. How this man even knew this is beyond my imagination, but Starkist has settled the case (without admitting fault).

Here’s where you can benefit from this:

If you’re a resident of the United States and bought at least one five-ounce can of any of these tunas from Starkist between February 19,1009 and October 31, 2014, you’re eligible to file a claim – and no, you don’t even need a receipt. It’s basically an honor code – you’re committing perjury if you file a claim and haven’t purchased Starkist tuna during that time period.

To file your claim, go to this hilariously accurate and blunt url: http://www.tunalawsuit.com and file your claim by November 20, 2015 – you can get $25, or a voucher for $50 worth of tuna.

I know I have definitely purchased Starkist tuna in the past 2.5 years – I’ll be collecting!
