This settlement ends a lawsuit filed against Starkist, in which a plaintiff “under-filled certain 5 oz. canned tuna products in violation of state and federal law. StarKist denies that it under filled its products and denies that it did anything wrong.” The court didn’t rule either way on Hendricks v. StarKist Co.. Instead, this settlement was an agreement that would avoid lengthy litigation for both sides.
The court has scheduled a final approval hearing for December 17, 2015, after which consumers will receive their settlement. The settlement provides that StarKist will pay $8 million in cash and $4 million in vouchers redeemable for StarKist tuna products.
