A California woman has filed a lawsuit against Jimmy John’s claiming a sandwich she ordered was supposed to contain sprouts but it didn’t.

The woman’s court case is listing fraud and a violation of California’s False Advertising Act, among other claims.

Jimmy John’s is settling and is now issuing vouchers for a free side item to anyone who claims they purchased a sandwich that was supposed to contain sprouts but didn’t.

Customers must fill out a form on their website saying they bought a sprout-less sandwich from February 2012 to July 21st, 2014.

From the class action settlement:

If you properly and timely submit a Settlement Claim Form, you will receive an electronic voucher that you may print and redeem at any Jimmy John’s restaurant. If you receive a payment under this Settlement, you will also be releasing the “Released Claims” against Defendant (see next section for definition of Released Claims). If you wish to receive a payment under the Settlement, you must not “Opt Out” of the Settlement.

You can read the entire settlement documents here.

The Settlement Claim Form is not yet available online but will be posted on when it is approved by the courts.
