Read on to see how you can qualify for this class-action lawsuit against Nestlé Candy.
In its latest class action lawsuit, Clarkson Law Firm is taking on candy company giant Nestlé and nine classic candies for falsely and deceptively misrepresenting the amount of candy contained in each box. Sold at retail outlets and movie theatres throughout the nation, Raisinets®, Buncha Crunch®, Butterfinger Bites®, Tollhouse SemiSweet Chocolate Morsels®, Rainbow Nerds®, SweeTarts®, Spree®, Gobstopper®, and SnoCaps® were found to be under-filled with 48% empty space. This empty space, known as “slack-fill”, serves no lawful function and allows candy manufacturers like Nestlé to profit from lower production costs. Consumers do not receive the full benefits of what they paid for and are forced to accept this deception as the new normal.
This deceptive business practice not only threatens consumers but also other companies, large and small, who play by the rules. It stifles competition, disrupts the marketplace, and reduces consumer choice and mobility.
Plaintiffs Jade Thomas and Carey Hoffman found themselves victims of Nestlé’s packaging scheme but have chosen to fight back to change the status quo and make fair packaging the new normal.
They’re not alone. Millions of other unsuspecting consumers have suffered the same deception. Had they known the boxes contained unlawful slack-fill, they would not have purchased the products, let alone paid for candy product they never received.
“Our lawsuit seeks to change the way Nestle packages or labels its candy boxes and refund the extra money consumers paid for candy they didn’t receive. Going forward, the solution is easy,” says Ryan Clarkson. “Fill the box, shrink the box, or relabel the box.”
If, within the last five years, you bought a theater box of Nestle’s Raisinets®, Buncha Crunch®, Butterfinger Bites®, Tollhouse SemiSweet Chocolate Morsels®, Rainbow Nerds®, SweeTarts®, Spree®, Gobstopper®, and SnoCaps® in the United States and this decision to purchase was based upon the size of the box and the candy you expected to receive, click the shield to see how you can join this lawsuit!
