If you've ever opened a bag of potato chips, you've probably been a bit disappointed by how much of the bag is just air. Why do they need that much air? Couldn't they simply fill that space with more chips?
They also contrast that with chip bags from other companies, pointing out that bags of Ruffles chips are filled to a much higher level. They believe that it's reasonable for a bag to be 30% air. But 75% air is way too much.
Alce and Nugent said if they had known the bags were mostly air, they wouldn't have paid for them. Although the bags did list the correct weight of the food inside, they still believe the packaging is misleading. “Even if defendants net weight disclosures are accurate, such does not eliminate this basic deception,” the suit said.
Perhaps this suit needs to go beyond New York and D.C., and instead to wherever Wise chips are sold. If these tweets are any indication, there are a lot of angry chip lovers out there who deserve compensation. Hopefully they will soon get the justice they deserve.
And the problem isn't limited to just Wise's potato chips. Their bags of onion rings seem to contain only about five or six. How are people supposed to get their fill of a processed, onion-like food product?
In addition, look carefully at this package of Wise Cheez Doodles. It says "No Preservatives," but the ingredients include a pretty big one, MSG. It just goes to show, you can't trust a product that spells cheese with a Z.
