$2.5 Million Settlement of Theater Boxed Candy Slack Fill Case

$2.5 Million Settlement of Theater Boxed Candy Slack Fill Case

Ferrara Candy Co. has agreed to pay $2.5 million to settle a putative class action alleging that Ferrara's boxes of such candies as Jujyfruits, RedHots, and Chuckles -- sold at movie theaters and retail outlets -- contained excessive nonfunctional empty space that led purchasers to believe that they were purchasing more candy than they actually received.  Ferrara also agreed to modify its filling procedures to reduce slack-fill.  [5/12/18]
