Wise Company named in class action lawsuit alleging the company falsely advertises its long term emergency food supplies

Wise Company

Wise-foods-logo

The Wise Company specializes in the manufacture and sale of survival food. Among its products are long-term food supplies which are claimed to contain enough food to last an adult for one, three, six and twelve month periods.  An independent investigation has revealed, however, that the caloric content of these food supplies are far below what is necessary for an average adult to live healthily (i.e. not starve) for those periods of time.

This is a class action filed by Plaintiffs on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated who have suffered and will continue to suffer harm as a result of Wise Company’s unlawful, unfair, and deceptive advertising and business practices. It arises out of Wise Company’s material misrepresentations and omissions in connection with the marketing and sale of its long-term and emergency food kits, which it touts as disaster preparedness solutions. Specifically, Wise Company represents on its website, its packaging, and other marketing materials that these food kits will last for and healthily sustain consumers for the advertised periods of time. However, Wise Company fails to disclose that if the consumer in fact eats the number of prescribed servings each day necessary to make the food kits last for the advertised period of time, the consumer will effectively starve given that the food kits provide drastically fewer calories and nutrients than are needed to adequately sustain adults for the advertised periods of time.

I just opened some of my wise food storage from 2011 to discover that it was rancid and inedible. I have contacted wise foods and they have asked me to return the product for testing and they say they will replace. So not only does the food not have a calorie content it also does not last the stated 25 years.

I placed my first order with them a few weeks ago. It all arrived. I decided to open the black bucket. When I looked inside I saw a bag with a slice in it, another bag with a tear starting. Took everything out and there was food on the bottom of the bucket and powder everywhere. Emailed them pictures of it and they were happy to replace it. I placed another order and received it today. I opened one of the buckets; almost the same thing. Powder over everything and could see dried food particles at the bottom of the bucket. Haven't checked for tears in the bags yet. I can't believe that people do not open their buckets and look inside when they arrive! Who would take a chance at eating something from a packet out of a bucket that had dried food lying inside the bucket? Receipt reads, "Up to 25 year-year shelf life." Looked at one bucket and it read, " Extended shelf life." So is it 5, 10,15, 20 or 25 years? I'm very disappointed with Wise Foods. The man that I order from is very nice and very helpful. When I check the rest of the buckets if I find anymore damaged bags I guess I'll have to go down a different avenue.

I refuse to let fear take hold of me enough to ever purchase any product that is marketed so skillfully at the political insecurity we feel.I formed a research corporation and believe in sustainable off grid living by engineering and growing solutions.Here is an example of what the FDA will ALLOW???

Open a bag and it smelled rancid. If the directions are followed it's soup and doesn't look like the picture at all.

I did not realize this, I find one of my mylar bags puncherd and have noticed that most of them are not vacuum sealed. Just very disappointed I thought I was buying some of the better long term storage food. I invested about a $1000.00 on wise food:(

Have purchased two buckets from Home Depot last year. Food doesn't last as advertised, extremely high sodium content. Artificial ingedrients full of preservatives.
Breech of confidentiality on Wise Food Storage part.

My wife and I bought a bunch of buckets from third parties.
I'm scared to open them. If they are bad. I am out that money because I have no receipt. I won't buy food from a company for this very reason of government finding out.
I have a bunch of the wise 5 day survival bug out bags. I guess they are no good either
