In February 2019, a false advertising class-action lawsuit
was filed against Walmart for allegedly charging more than the advertised sale price for food that has a price based on its weight. Plaintiffs claim, for example, that Walmart reduced the price on a 1.36 pound package of chicken wings to $1.67 per pound, which would have made the total price for the package of chicken $2.27, but the store actually charged $3.52 for the package of wings, which was $1.25 more than the represented price.

, Case No. 19-cv-80221, S. D. FL.)
