A class-action lawsuit
was filed against Blue Apron in June 2015 for, among other things, allegedly deceptively offering subscriptions to its 2-Person Plan (which provides the ingredients to make a meal for two people) without adequately disclosing the terms of the subscription or the cancellation policy and charging consumers without their consent. The lawsuit, which was transferred to federal court in July 2015, was dismissed with prejudice
as to the named plaintiff, and without prejudice
as to class members. The reasons for the dismissal have not yet been disclosed. (Riccobono et al v. Blue Apron, Inc.
, Case No. 15-cv-6717, S. D. NY.)
