Are you wondering what this lawsuit is about? According to the StarKist tuna class action lawsuit, which was filed in February 2013 by plaintiff Patrick Hendricks, federal law requires 5-ounce cans to contain an average of 2.84 to 3.23 ounces of tuna. However, Hendricks alleges that 5-ounce cans of StarKist tuna only contain an average of 2.81 to 3.11 ounces of tuna.
Hendricks claims he would not have purchased the StarKist tuna products if he had known they did not contain an adequate amount of tuna for a 5-ounce can. He filed the class action lawsuit on behalf of himself and a Class of consumers who purchased the allegedly under-filled cans of StarKist tuna.
