A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit that claims Popchips Inc. violated state laws regarding the marketing and sale of its “Popchips” brand snack products. If you purchased “Popchips” brand snack products between Jan. 1, 2007 and Nov. 14, 2013, you could be eligible to receive compensation from the Popchips class action settlement.
Class Members of the Popchips settlement include anyone who resides in the United States and bought certain “Popchips” brand snack products between Jan. 1, 2007 and Nov. 14, 2013. Under the terms of the Popchips class action settlement, eligible Popchips brand snack products include:
Up to $10 Cash or $20 in Product Vouchers. Class Members who submit a valid Claim Form may be eligible to receive either Popchips vouchers worth up to $20 or a cash payment of up to $10, depending on the number of Popchips brand snack products they purchased during the settlement period.
Class Members who elect the cash option may be eligible to receive a payment of $1 per bag of Popchips brand snack products purchased, up to a total of 10 bags, per household. Class Members who elect the voucher option may be eligible to receive two $1 Popchips vouchers per bag of Popchips brand snack products purchased, up to a maximum of 10 bags, per household.
If the total dollar value of claims filed by Class Members is more than the amount available from the class action settlement funds to satisfy the claims, the benefit available to Class Members will be reduced on a pro-rata basis. The actual amount of benefits each Class Member will receive may not be determined until the Popchips class action settlement gets final approval.
