It's all thanks to the settlement of a class-action lawsuit against the company. The suit claimed StarKist was under filling its five-ounce tuna cans by a few tenths of an ounce.
StarKist didn't admit any wrongdoing by settling the lawsuit, but it means customers of the popular tuna brand can now get either $25 in cash or $50 worth of tuna fish.
If you bought any of the following cans of tuna between February 19, 2009 and October 31, 2014, you're eligible for the money.
- Chunk Light Tuna in Water
- Chunk Light Tuna in Oil
- Solid White in Water
- Solid White in Oil
To get your hands on the cash, you won't need a receipt. All you have to do is go to tunalawsuit.com and fill out a form that states, on penalty of perjury, that you bought one of those cans of tuna and would like your share of the settlement.
