Walmart Class Action Alleges False Sale Prices on Perishable Items!
Walmart uses “sale” prices to overcharge for their packaged meat products and other weighted goods, according to a class action lawsuit.
For example, Walmart allegedly sold a 1.36 lb. pack of chicken wings at $3.87 per pound. The original price was $5.26 per pound. Later, as the expiration date approached, Walmart reportedly lowered the price to $1.67 per pound. That should have cost $2.27. However, the Walmart class action states that the customer was charged $3.52 at checkout – resulting in Walmart collecting an additional $1.25 in profit.
The Walmart Weighted Goods Class Action Lawsuit is Kukorinis v. Walmart Inc., Case No. 9:19-cv-80221-XXXX, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
It is said to include hundreds of thousands of customers. Stay tuned as this one unfolds!
