"If you purchased a 5-ounce can of StarKist chunk light tuna or solid white tuna..."

"...between 2009 and 2014...you could be owed a refund, and you get to choose between $25 in cash or $50 in tuna".

It's about time we got a refund from companies who shrink the product to squeeze out more profit. Being shortchanged, even a little bit, adds up to million$ in profit due to the sheer volume.

You just know that, if you choose the tuna, the Gorton Fisherman is going to show up at your door with a whole fish over his shoulder, right?

Don't know about that... I submitted my claim. I opted for $50 of tuna instead of $25.
