Packaging of Pret A Manager Sandwich Wraps
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.)
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.
