Image of the Day: Medical / Pharmaceutical / Healthcare Sector Approval Skyrockets

Although the year 2020 was a trying one in so many ways, one bright spot that we at CFIF repeatedly highlighted is the wondrous way in which America's pharmaceutical sector came to the rescue, achieving in one year what typically takes a decade or more:  devising and perfecting not one, but multiple lifesaving vaccines.  It's therefore no surprise, but welcome nonetheless, that Americans' approval of our healthcare sector and its workers skyrocketed.  Their remarkable achievements have not gone unnoticed:

Wednesday, January 13 2021

A Washington State woman is suing coffee giant Folgers alleging its trademark red canister of coffee falls short on the number of cups it proclaims to make.

Julie Marthaller filed the class action lawsuit last week on the grounds (pun intended) that the canister says it would yield “up to 210 6 fl oz. cups” when it actually “contained only enough ground coffee to make approximately 169 6 fl oz. cups.”

According to the complaint, Marthaller said she would have paid significantly less for the product had she known it didn’t contain the amount of coffee it claimed to contain.

“Therefor, [she] suffered injury in fact and lost money as a result of Defendants’ misleading, false, unfair, and deceptive practices,” the lawsuit claims.

The suit brews up more details, saying the label on the coffee recommends “consumers use one tablespoon to make one serving (6 fl oz cup) of coffee. One tablespoon of Folgers weighs .15 ounces. Using the recommended method, 1 25.4 ounce canister contains only enough ground coffee to make approximately 169 cups of coffee (25.4 ounces/.15 ounces per serving = 31.5 ounces)”.

“Mathematically, the canister can not make more than 169 cups.”

The suit claims the defendants committed fraud and violated Washington’s Consumer Protection Act.

According to news reports, the named defendants, Folgers and Smuckers, have yet to respond.
