Wise Sued for Underfilling Potato Chip Bags

Two customers are suing the maker of Wise potato chips for filling their bags less than halfway, tricking them into overpaying. Sameline Alce and Desiré Nugent claim in their lawsuit filed Monday night that Wise Foods systematically underfills bags, leaving them anywhere from 58 to 75 percent empty.

Alec and Nugent said that they would have not paid as much for their chips if they had known about the unreasonably empty space. The proposed class action seeks damages for buyers in New York and Washington, D.C., as well as packaging adjustments.Click To Read The Story
