Was just cruising PopMalt and at the top of the page saw a banner ad that said If you purchased a box of candy, you may be entitled to a settlement:
Ferrara Candy Settlement
No joke. $2.5M because the candy box had air in it.

$2.5M Ferrara Candy Slack-Fill Class Action Settlement - ClassActionWallet

A settlement has been reached between Ferrara Candy Co. (“Defendant”) and Thomas Iglesias (“Class Representative” or “Plaintiff”), individually and on behalf of the Settlement Class. The settlement resolves a class action lawsuit about allegations that Defendant packages its boxed candy products in oversized packaging with nonfunctional empty space. Defendant denies the allegations. The Court did not rule in favor of either side. The parties agreed to the settlement to avoid the expense and risks of continuing the lawsuit.
You are a class member if you are a resident of the United States who purchased one or more cardboard boxes of Jujyfruits®, Jujubes®, Now & Later®, Lemonhead®, Applehead®, Cherryhead®, Grapehead®, RedHots®, Trolli®, Chuckles®, Black Forest®, Jawbuster®, Jawbreaker®, Brach’s®, Boston Baked Beans®, Super Bubble®, Rainblo®, or Atomic Fireball candy, or any flavors or varieties of them (“Settlement Class Products”), between February 21, 2013 and June 21, 2018.
Some people are idiots and will find a way to make a buck anyway possible.

Pretty much every food item seems to come in packaging that could fit twice as much.

To own a business is our sue-happy society is to master the art of walking on eggshells sprawled across a tightrope held on both ends only by your customers.

One wrong move and that’s all she wrote.

Ridiculous.

People will sue over absolutely anything and everything. One reason medical costs are so high.
