Details: The Nutella settlement will resolve two class action lawsuits, entitled In Re: Ferrero Litigation and In Re: Nutella Marketing and Sales Practices Litigation, alleging Ferrero U.S.A., Inc. improperly suggested that Nutella hazelnut spread is healthier than it actually is through its marketing and advertising. According to the class action lawsuits, Nutella actually contains “significant amounts of saturated fat and processed sugar.”

Ferrero denies any wrongdoing, but has agreed to a class action lawsuit settlement to avoid ongoing litigation.

Class Members of the Nutella class action settlement include two groups of consumers: those who purchased Nutella in California from August 1, 2009 through January 23, 2012 (the California Settlement), and those who purchased Nutella in any other state between January 1, 2008 through February 3, 2012 (the Nationwide Settlement).

Both groups of Class Members can file a claim to receive up to $4 per jar of Nutella they purchased during the relevant time period. Class Members who purchased multiple jars of Nutella can submit a claim for up to five jars for a maximum award of $20 per household. You do not need to submit proof of purchase in order to receive settlement benefits.


Ferrero has also agreed under the Nutella settlement to modify labeling of Nutella and certain marketing statements, create new TV ads, and to modify the Nutella website.

To receive your cash refund from the Nutella class action settlement, you must fill out a claim form online at NutellaClassActionSettlement.com, or download a claim form and mail it to the Settlement Administrator postmarked (or received online) no later than the deadline of July 5, 2012.
