Harry and David Moose Munch Gourmet Popcorn
February 2017: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Harry and David for allegedly deceptively packaging its 10 oz. Harry & David® Moose Munch® Gourmet Popcorn – including the milk chocolate, dark chocolate, classic caramel, and cinnamon maple pecan flavors – using slack-filled packaging. According to the complaint, the popcorn is sold in cardboard boxes with 43% empty space to make consumers believe they are getting more popcorn than they actually are. (Brown et al v. Harry and David, LLC, Case No. 17-cv-999, S. D. NY.)

When a complaint is dismissed with prejudice, it cannot be refiled.
You know when you buy a big bag of chips, and you’re all psyched for a feast, and then it turns out there are like, three chips in the bag? That bag is slack filled.
