Kellogg Cereal Class Action Settlement, Get Up to $16 If Eligible

Kellogg Cereal Class Action Settlement

Kellogg Cereal Class Action Settlement

This lawsuit alleges Kellogg violated certain laws in labeling certain breakfast cereals with claims that made the products seem healthy, when they were in fact unhealthy due to their high added sugar content. Kellogg denies any and all wrongdoing and has asserted various defenses that it believes are meritorious.

Both sides have agreed to a Settlement, which will allow both sides to avoid the risk and cost of further litigation. The Court has not decided in favor of the Class or Kellogg.

Each timely, valid claimant will receive a payment based on the type and estimated amount of Class Products purchased during the Class Period. Based on the estimated number of claims that will be made, the estimated average Cash Award is approximately $16.09. However, the actual amount of the Cash Award any individual receives will depend on both the number of claims made, and each claimant’s purchase history, and may be significantly more or less than $16.09.

Who’s Eligible?

The Class includes all persons in the United States who, between August 29th, 2012 and May 1st, 2020 (the “Class Period”), purchased in the United States, for household use and not for resale or distribution, one of the Class Products.
