Packaging of Pret A Manager Sandwich Wraps

February 2019: The named plaintiff resolved and voluntarily dismissed her individual claims.

2017: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Pret A Manager (USA) Limited for allegedly deceptively using slack-filled packaging for Pret A Manager sandwich wraps. According to the complaint, cardboard prevents consumers from seeing that the middle of the wrap’s packaging is empty space, instead of food. (The complaint was originally filed in July and amended in November.) (Lau et al v. Pret A Manger (USA) Limited, Case No. 17-cv-5775, S. D. NY.)
