    Nigger-lipped Tuna lover Mamzer from Mentor suing StarKist for allegedly underfilling cans

    A Mentor man who claims StarKist Co. has fishy business practices is seeking $64,000 in damages.

    Acting as his own attorney, Bryan Anthony Reo filed a lawsuit Dec. 23 in Lake County Common Pleas Court against the Pittsburgh-based company.

    According to the suit, StarKist committed statutory violations of the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act by underfilling cans of tuna by about three-tenths of 1 ounce to four-tenths of 1 ounce each and then placing the cans “into the stream of commerce” to be sold to customers.

    During 2013 and 2014, Reo said he bought at least several hundred cans of StarKist chunk light tuna to have an emergency food reserve and because he often eats a can a day.

    “I like it. It’s low-fat, high protein,” said Reo when contacted by telephone.

    Reo, who is not an attorney, said he still has numerous unopened cans from 2013 and 2014.

    Reo said he is seeking between $200 to $3,000 per can for the 20 cans he can prove were underfilled, and other costs, for a total of $64,000.

    Another man sued the company in 2013 with similar claims. StarKist agreed to settle the case while not admitting fault.

    In the class action case, the company agreed to pay customers who bought at least one can of tuna over the last five years either $25 in cash or $50 in tuna — no receipt necessary, according to Consumerist.com.

    The deadline to join the class action suit was Nov. 20.

    “I decided to opt out of the class action suit and proceed as an individual,” said Reo. “I typically eat three to five cans a week, so $25 wasn’t adequate.”

    Michelle Faist, StarKist’s senior manager of corporate affairs, did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

    The case has been assigned to Judge Richard L. Collins Jr.
