 Fred Meyer stores face suit
The original allegations against Fred Meyer arose in 2001, when David Galego, a meat manager for a store in Oregon, was accused and cited by state agricultural officials of charging customers illegally for the weight of packaging.
Oregon officials were "assured by Fred Meyer that these problems would be addressed and corrected," said John Moore, one of the Oregon agricultural officials who inspected Fred Meyer stores at that time.
"It is apparent to me that Fred Meyer has made little, if any, effort to correct the problems in its in-house weighing and packaging of meats, which were previously detected by the state of Oregon," Moore wrote in an affidavit for the lawsuit.
