StarKist loses a suit and is providing people who bought ANY 5oz tuna in water or oil between 2009 and 2014- or says they did- $25 check or voucher for $50 in tuna. No receipt required- check your pantry. Details and application here: https://www.tunalawsuit.com/Home.aspx

Jim

P.S. Which did you take?

$25 check?
$50 voucher?

I took the voucher. Tuna is a staple around here.

Thanks. I submitted a claim. It's funny- I remember contacting Starkist a few years ago about a problem with their tuna- the meat was literally disgusting- it was extremely fishy and dark- quite a number of cans like that. People at work had the same problem.They sent me some coupons but I never purchased Starkist tuna again after that.

I filed. I switched from Starkist to Chicken of the Sea because the SK quality seemed to be going downhill. Maybe this is why.

Thanks, Jim!

Did they fired Charlie The Tuna and that caused the tuna quality to down hill?

LOL! I think it was when Jessica Simpson asked if Chicken of the Sea was chicken or fish?

thanks for the link! I opted for cash. Now that I'm a Costco member I much prefer their tuna, but used to buy the COTS stuff along with other supermarket brands before.

I think it's because they canned Charlie. Read it either way.

Took the cash. $50 in Tuna would last me till doomsday.

Cheers

Looks like I am not eligible, even though I purchased many tins. We are Canadian snowbirds who winter in Florida, and the suit is restricted to US citizens.

Thanks for posting, submitted for voucher.
We usually buy Bumble Bee Tuna but will occasionally buy StarKist when local markets have sales.
Very possibly got the under-filled cans of tuna but definitely purchased Starkist between 2009 - 2014.........hope they learned their lesson, $12 mill. bucks!
Now how do we file claims on all these grocery product manufacturers that keep slapping "new and improved" on a shrunken package?!
Everything seems to be costing the same$ but in smaller quantity....jeesh!

I also filed for the voucher. I vary the brand that I buy, but I do remember getting some cans that, after the water was drained, looked about 1/2 full. Guess those were some of the cans that led to the lawsuit.

I think I'll share some of my vouchers by getting some cans of tuna for the local food bank.

No one is going to check your citizenship, but they will only send checks/vouchers to U.S. addresses. Perhaps you have a 'friend' with a U.S. addy?

Sounds kind of dishonest to me. Sorry Jim, but I've just reported you to the tuna mafia. Watch your back.

Not really. If Dori bought the tuna during the time they were selling the affected cans, she qualifies as a member of the 'injured' class. Just because she doesn't have a U.S. address shouldn't disqualify her. But thanks for the warning anyway. :) I'll be on the lookout for Charlie.

I was more afraid of the tuna mafia showing up at my door and checking the pantry for 5 year old tuna.

Ha! Someone forwarded me an email about the tuna claim initially, but I didn't get around to submitting anything until I saw your post. Thanks for letting us know!
