Werther’s Original Caramel Hard Candies

In November 2018, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Storck USA L.P. for allegedly deceptively using slack-filled packaging for Werther’s Original Caramel Hard Candies. Specifically, the complaint claims that the opaque packages contain more than 40% empty space. (Woods et al v. Storck USA L.P., Case No. 18-cv-2409, C. D. CA.)
