Eating tuna just may pay off in a way you didn't expect. There's a class action lawsuit against StarKist because they may have under-filled their tuna cans by a few tenths of an ounce each for more than five years, according to Consumerist.com. You probably didn't notice the skimping, but if you purchased at least one StarKist can, you may be owed $25 in cash--or $50 in free StarKist tuna--to make up for the missing fish. And you don't even have to dig out a grocery receipt proving that you bought some (but if you file a claim and are then discovered not to have bought one of the below StarKist products, you could face perjury charges).
U.S. residents may file a claim if they've purchased a 5-oz can of one of the following kinds of tuna between February 19, 2009 and October 31, 2014:
Chunk Light Tuna in Water
Chunk Light Tuna in Oil
Solid White in Water
Solid White in Oil
