Pret A Manger faces a putative class action alleging the chain’s wrap packaging hides inches of empty space between sandwich halves. Lau v. Pret A Manger (USA) Ltd., No. 17-5775 (S.D.N.Y., filed July 31, 2017). The complaint alleges that Pret's wraps are packaged in clear plastic sleeves with an opaque cardboard band hiding nonfunctional slack fill between the cut halves. The plaintiff also argues that the sandwiches are misbranded under the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and that the act's safe harbor provisions allowing extra space in packaging do not apply to the wraps because they are made and sold at the restaurant’s locations. Claiming violations of New York consumer-protection law and fraud, the plaintiff seeks class certification, damages, restitution, injunctive relief and attorney’s fees.
