This story seems so unlikely that I checked it out on Snopes and nothing came up, so I'm going to assume that it's true. It seems that the folks at Starkist tuna were accused of under filling their cans. It's not exactly ethical, but it's a great way to increase profits, that's for sure.

At any rate, it seems that the folks at Starkist got caught and now they're having to pretty much pay through the nose. Keep in mind that the Starkist people didn't admit they did it, it's just part of a settlement they have to pay and you can be in on it if you bought Starkist Tuna in the past 5 years. What's the catch?

Well, if what I heard is right, there is no catch. All you have to do is say you bought Starkist Tuna sometime in the last 5 years and you can have $25 or $50 worth of Starkist Tuna. It's your choice. Frankly, I'd like to see what $50 of tuna looks like. I love tuna casserole and 50 pounds would make one hell of a tuna noodle dish.

By the way, you don't even have to have a receipt to prove you bought tuna over the past 5 years. I guess it's all on the honor system. We all know how well that works, right? The bottom line is if you go to the website, all you do is fill out the form and wait for your cash or tuna. If you opted for the $50 in tuna, please send us a picture of what $50 of tuna looks like.
