Sale Prices of Walmart’s Weighted Foods
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. (Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint in April 2019.) (Kukorinis et al v. Walmart, Inc., Case No. 19-cv-20592, S.D. Fl.)
