StarKist Tuna is the name of a brand of tuna owned by Dongwon Industries

Its mascot is Charlie the Tuna, an anthropomorphic cartoon tuna. Commercials usually featured the phrase "Sorry Charlie".

In August 2015, StarKist settled a class-action lawsuit claiming that the company was guilty of deliberately "under-filling" five-ounce cans of tuna.[1] Earlier that same month, StarKist was sued, accused of colluding with two other tuna distributors to fix prices.[2]
