The Packaging for Tylenol®
March 2015: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Johnson & Johnson for allegedly misleadingly using slack-filled packaging for Tylenol® pain reliever and fever reducer products. According to the complaint, the company uses containers that make it appear as if the consumer is buying more than they actually are. (Fermin et al v. McNeil-PPC and Johnson & Johnson Companies, Inc., Case No. 15-cv-01215, E. D. NY.).

When a complaint is dismissed without prejudice, an amended version of the complaint can 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.
