Godiva Chocolate Class Action Settlement
If you purchased any Godiva Chocolate products over the last six years, you can file a claim for up to a $25 rebate. The company has settled a lawsuit that alleges Godiva Chocolate Products were advertised as being made in Belgium when they are not exclusively manufactured there. Godiva denies the allegations. The Court has not determined which side is right. Rather, the parties have agreed to settle the lawsuit to avoid the uncertainties, expenses and expenditure of resources associated with ongoing litigation.
If you purchased any Godiva Chocolate Products from January 31, 2015 through October 26, 2021, in the United States, you may be a Settlement Class Member.
You are not a member of the Settlement Class if: (a) you timely and properly exclude yourself from this Settlement, explained in question 9, (b) you are a retailer or distributor of Godiva Chocolate Products or purchased Godiva Chocolate Products for the purpose of re-sale, (c) you are an employee of Godiva or the law firms of the law firms representing the Parties, (d) you are governmental entity or part of the Court’s immediate family or the Court’s staff, or (e) you are part of the mediator’s staff or immediate family.
