Wholesale Corp. alleging the company’s shrimp was falsely advertised as adherent to a supplier code of conduct on human rights while the product was allegedly obtained through the use of slave labor. Sud v. Costco Wholesale Corp., No. 15-3783 (N.D. Cal., order entered January 15, 2016). The plaintiff argued that she was harmed because she purchased shrimp relying on Costco’s misrepresentation; the court disagreed after Costco provided records of the plaintiff’s and her mother’s purchases, which the company tracks through its membership program. Accordingly the court granted Costco’s motion to dismiss but allowed the plaintiff leave to amend. Details about the August 2015 complaint appear in Issue 576 of this Update.
