3 U.S. canned tuna companies sued for falsely labeling products as dolphin-safe

  • Published on May 16, 2019
  • U.S. consumers have filed a class action lawsuit in California federal court this week against the country's three major packaged tuna companies because they say Starkist, Chicken of the Sea and Bumble Bee falsely advertised its products as "dolphin-safe." That's despite using fishing techniques that are allegedly harmful and even lethal to dolphins.

    are there not other species of fish being affected by this, or did y'all just pick dolphins cause they're cute.

      Because Dolphins and Whales are mammals unlike other fish, show high amount of intelligence, call each other by names just like humans, have been seen and recorded helping human including keeping human safe from drowning and fighting off sharks and never been seen harming a human being. So why should we harm them? Regardless of all that you cant false advertise and lie to consumers because that opens a whole can of worms that is slippery slope that could lead to more lies

      No I'm not the arbiter of anything but I do have enough sense that if abortion was illegal it wouldn't go away. It would just drive it underground. Do you think unwanted children would grow up in a loving home?

      @Chuck U Farley Are you the arbiter on who gets to say what. Typical authoritarian. This isn't Europe we still have fee speech. Fascist.
