Powder-less but not Powerless. Class Action Against Coffee Bean
Join the fight against under-filled, over-sized powder tins.
This is a consumer protection false advertising class action lawsuit brought on behalf of all purchasers of all flavors and varieties of Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Powder Tins. These are sold at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf cafes and other retail outlets throughout California and the United States.
Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is intentionally misleading and shortchanging consumers by falsely and deceptively misrepresenting the amount of product actually contained in the powder tins. The size of the containers leads the reasonable consumer to believe that he or she is paying for more product than he or she receives. However, the containers are under-filled by over 55%. Less than 45% is filled with powder, and the rest is empty space, or “slack-fill”, which serves no legitimate or lawful function.
At the expense of consumers’ wallets, nonfunctional slack-fill like the type used by Coffee Bean allows businesses to reduce their food production costs and profit from the empty space. In this case, Clarkson Law Firm is representing consumers who are among the thousands of customers who reasonably relied on the size of the containers when making their purchases.
“This case seeks to hold Coffee Bean accountable for using deceptive containers. The solution is easy: fill the tin, shrink the tin, or change the label to eliminate the consumer deception. Consumers deserve transparency, fair competition, and the ability to make informed choices,” says Ryan Clarkson, managing partner of the firm.
