In re Trader Joe's Tuna Litigation
United States District Court, Central District of California
If You Purchased Trader Joe’s Canned Tuna,
You May Benefit From A Proposed Class Action Settlement
A Proposed Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit. The lawsuit claims that Trader Joe’s Company and Trader Joe’s East Inc. (collectively, “Trader Joe’s”) sold underfilled 5 oz. tuna cans in violation of state and federal law. Trader Joe’s denies these claims. The Court did not rule in favor of Plaintiff or Trader Joe’s. Instead, the parties agreed to a Proposed Settlement to avoid the expense and risks of continuing the lawsuit. If you are eligible, you may submit a claim for a cash payment of $29. The claim amount may be subject to pro rata dilution if the total amount of claims exceeds the available Settlement funds.
Below is the timeline for the Settlement.
