Update – Settlement Pad Out
Many people have received a post card, dates March 27, 2020, which is the settlement payout. It includes your name, claim number and the amount that will be paid out. You can deposit this at your banking institution but most likely you have to go to a branch because some banking apps will not recognize it as a check. You need to sign it in the back and provide valid ID. It is void after July 25th, 2020. A terrible way to pay out people, making them go to a bank during a pandemic.
Good Health Class Action Settlement
The Good Health class action settlement comes after claims that the Defendant violated certain laws by labeling and advertising its snack Products as “All Natural” and “100% Natural” when they allegedly contain synthetic, artificial, highly processed ingredients, chemical preservatives, and artificial flavors, including: sunflower oil, corn syrup, canola oil, citric acid, ascorbic acid, maltodextrin, dextrose, potassium chloride, lactic acid, malic acid, evaporated cane juice, folic acid, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, niacin, paprika extract, and disodium phosphate. The lawsuit also asserts additional allegations, such as that Defendant claimed some of its Products are “healthy” and “wholesome,” and “made with whole wheat” and/or used improper comparisons concerning the amount of fat on product labels.
