    People will get less then $29.00.
    They really think that only 58,620 people bought it in the 5 1/2 years. Probably get less then $5.00.

  11. Jacque says:

    Not certain which wild planet items I can claim or how many cans/items without my receipt? Thanks

    ADMIN – Hi Jacque,

    As indicated on this page this is a tuna can settlement, the terms are as follows:
    The Settlement provides that Wild Planet will pay $1.7 million in cash. You may submit a claim for a cash payment of $29. The claim amount may be subject to pro rata dilution if the total amount of claims exceeds the available settlement funds or the cost of notice and claims administration exceeds $350,000.
    You do not need a receipt or other proof of purchase to submit a claim. You will, however, be required to submit a Claim Form confirming under penalty of perjury (i) the specific Wild Planet product(s) you purchased, and (ii) that the purchase or purchases were made within the Settlement Class Period.

    unable to submit an online claim form-this is how you guys stop consumers from submitting a claim

    ADMIN – Hi Jo,

    It must be a user problem. Mine went through easily.

    • Mike says:

      Can’t submit a claim. Keep getting “Please check your input. We were unable to process your request with the information given. Please review all your input and submit your information again.”

      ADMIN – Hi Mike,

      That sounds frustrating. I had no problem submitting mine.

  13. KATHLEEN Bachak says:

    Very disappointing information for the consumer. I will not be purchasing their products in the future. They have lost my trust.

    • Rachel says:

      You do know it is still under investigation, right?

      They are a great company! When I called them asking if they ever gave out coupons, they were so generous to me.

      ADMIN – Hi Rachel,

      I love their tuna too but failure to deliver the weight posted on the can is a crime.

    Portion to price makes a difference
