The linked pdf is to the details of the settlement based on erroneous labeling of several products as "all natural".

  1. Got this in the mail on Saturday, and finally read through it today. I am not filling it out. You can get I think 2.10 back per pack of joe joes we bought, with a cap at 10, or else you need a receipt. Considering that's about twenty one bucks, and the joe joes were enjoyed and long hone, I won't be filling it out. Did anyone actually consider those lard-like filled treats all natural and healthy? Granted I get the gist, don't lie or you'll get caught, but not worth it for me.

    1. I was under the impression that the term "natural" had no legal definition; how can TJs or anyone be in violation of something that's not legally defined?

      1. Ironic since TJ's frequently states: "At Trader Joe's, when we say all natural, we really mean all natural." (going back to at least 2009 -- see )

        1. We used to worry about "ambulance chasers" but now we should also keep an eye out for "shopping cart chasers."
