A partial class action settlement was reached in a tuna lawsuit that sought a $20 million payout for consumers who were harmed by contamination of canned tuna. The case focuses on illegal conspiracies between several companies to increase the price of packaged salmon, tuna, and other products. The plaintiffs claim the conspiracy violated antitrust laws and unfair competition laws. The class size of this lawsuit is relatively small, but some of the defendants have settled out of court.
In addition to price-fixing, the plaintiffs claim the defendants engaged in a conspiracy to fix or raise Packaged Tuna prices.
The class action is also asserted against companies that sell seafood, including canned salmon. The plaintiffs allege that the price-fixing conspiracy has affected them as consumers, which is a violation of federal law. In addition to claims for lost profits, the plaintiffs also claim to have been harmed by illegal competition.
Trader Joe’s is responsible for the settlement. The company will pay $1.3 million to settle the lawsuit, but the plaintiffs must provide proof of purchase. The settlement does not cover all of the claims that have been filed. However, plaintiffs are required to submit a valid claim form by Aug. 22, 2022, to receive their claim payout. As long as they have purchased the product, the company is legally responsible for any damages or loss of profits they incur.
Although the settlement is not a guarantee, it is an important step for the plaintiffs’ cause.
Starkist is facing a large amount of litigation. In August 2019, a judge sided with the plaintiffs and ordered the company to pay the plaintiffs $25 in cash and $50 in coupons for tuna. However, the settlement isn’t the final solution. A final hearing is scheduled for July 15, 2022. The class members must submit valid claims form by Aug. 22, 2022.
