Tuna Direct Purchaser Settlement

You may be eligible for compensation if you purchased Packaged Tuna Products directly from Bumble Bee, Chicken of the Sea, StarKist, or Thai Union Group between June 1, 2011 and July 31, 2015.

You are a Settlement Class Member if you or your company directly purchased packaged tuna products (excluding tuna salad kits and cups and salvage purchases) within the United States, its territories and the District of Columbia from any Defendant at any time between June 1, 2011 and July 31, 2015. Packaged Tuna Products means shelf-stable tuna sold for human consumption and packaged in either cans or pouches.

A group of small businesses, known as the Direct Purchaser Plaintiffs, sued on behalf of a proposed Class of similarly situated direct purchasers alleging that Defendants Chicken of the Sea, Thai Union, Bumble Bee Foods LLC, StarKist Co., Dongwon Industries Co. Ltd., and Lion Capital (Americas), Inc., conspired to fix, raise, and maintain the prices for Packaged Tuna and that, as a result, members of the Class paid more than they otherwise would have.
