Did you ever open a box of cereal or bag of chips and wonder if they filled most of the darn thing with air?
That's what one Northern Kentucky man is wondering, after buying a bottle of baby powder that he first thought had been opened and already used.
Joseph Riley can't believe what he found in a bottle of talc body power at a nearby dollar store.
"When I got home," he said, "I happened to put it on the window sill of my bathroom, and because of the sunlight coming through I could tell it wasn't even halfway full."
Riley bought the house-brand powder at Dollar Tree, where he says it looked like a great bargain for just a buck. Under the store's fluorescent lights, he could not tell how much powder the yellow plastic bottle contained.
But he says the small amount inside was crazy.
"I would have figured that at 10 ounces, it would probably be up toward the top" he said, "so that when you flip it over you can get some out. But not down to here (the midway line)."
Lawsuits target candy, potato chip makers
Packages filled with lots of air have become a widespread complaint these days.
Some of the most complaints concern potato chips.
A recent class action lawsuit accuses the east coast regional brand Wise of deliberately under filing its potato chip bags, with much less product than a similar bags of Ruffles.
