StarKist Those Fraudulent Profits Goodbye

August 27, 2015
StarKist settles canned tuna lawsuit; consumers can get $25 or $50 in fish

Though StarKist Co. denies any wrongdoing, it settled the suit by offering to pay consumers either $25 in cash or $50 in fish.

I claim they are lying when they deny any wrongdoing. It is wrong to put less fish in a can than the legal standard.

Filing a false claim would be perjury.

What if I simply denied any wrongdoing? Wouldn't that make it okay?

We get all our tuna at Costco. It's Chicken of the Sea, so we won't be filing a claim.

If you bought even one StarKist 5-ounce can of chunk light or solid white tuna, in oil or in water, between Feb. 19, 2009 and Oct. 31, 2014, then you are entitled to a fairly hefty sum as compensation. Don't worry about finding your receipt. Ironically enough, they're using the honor-system. Go figure.

I don't know. Your claim seems "fishy". ;)

In Britain there's a children's delicacy called "fish fingers". Do you have them in the US?

We call them fish sticks here. We have quite a few in our freezer. We don't have any children so I'm not quite sure what that says about us. ;)

We get them at Costco and they are made from Alaskan Pollock. Tasty.

I have some StarKist cans on my shelf that would fall within those dates. Perhaps I can re-sell them to people for $10 a can and they can then make claims.

If you sell it them for $10 then you can offer to instantly buy it back for $2. That way you'll never run out of inventory. Nobody is actually required to eat the tuna, lol. ;)
