  • Jessie August 5, 2013

    Honestly?? This is a class action lawsuit??? OMG…@Felicia Miller, you are why this world is stupid and lawsuit happy! “Oh, they are delicious…I just purchased a box last weekend..” Can I still be part of the settlement?? Really?? Get a life, and stop trying to be part of the “entitlement society”…Kellogg’s does not owe you 15.00 or free cereal! Geez…how frivolous!

  • priscilla vera August 7, 2013

    ive been purchasing kelloggs cereal all my childrens life and my mom has for us ,but it is what it is.

  • honey bo bo August 8, 2013

    watch and see how many people dont get checks on this one lol

    • John Odey December 18, 2013

      The favor of my God prevents Garden City Group from defeating me as I havent had a problem. However I suggest the next time you file a claim & GCG is the administrator write a letter to the courts requesting a new administrator on the basis of discrimination because of a prior class action suit having been filed & the administator will not pay the claim on your behalf and those of the litigants even though it is a honest claim. Attach supporting documents that were sent to the FTC & Attorney General regarding GCG that you previous filed. ( Yes, file a complaint online with them & you will get a reply with a case # ) . If those that are having problems take a half hour to do this even 1 claim that prevents GCG from being the adminstrator will cost them thousands of $ for losing the contract. Hope this is beneficial to all & wish everyone a Happy Holiday season.

    makes you wonder what will happen to this site if no one comes to check out class actions!!! no more advertisement dollars spent here cause theres no one here cause no one gets paid any more from class actions

    #17 honey bo bo 2013-08-10 09:28
    BUT IF YOU KNOW HOW TO OBJECT TO A SETTELMENT THEN YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO REALLY MESS WITH THEM. THINK ABOUT IT 1000 OBJECTIONS ON EVERY CLASS ACTION THAT YOU THINK YOU MIGHT GET DENIED. THEY MIGHT HAVE TO PAY YOU TO DROP YOUR OBJECTION

    #16 honey bo bo 2013-08-10 09:23
    no matter what you do if you have applied for any class action within the last year you will not get any more money
    have you ever seen some one say” YEAH AND WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT” receipts, photos of you eating the product, DNA sample of a employee at one of the stores, photos of the product after its turned to stool, packaging, UPC codes, ingredient labels, invoices, NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO FORCE THEM TO PAY YOU WATCH AND YOU WILL BE AMAZED HOW THEY JUST TELL YOU TO GO TO HELL

  • R Howard August 13, 2013

    To Jesse … Wake up and open your eyes to big corporate greed! Read the book by Pulitzer Prize Winner Michael Moss, Salt Sugar and Fat! You will look at food differently and fortify yourself with a healthy dose of skepticism. These food corporations taint our food with unhealthy, disease causing, life shortening ” substances” and then make claims that it is something beneficial for us when it is not. I believe that most any reasonable person would consider that sort of behavior to be called a “lie”!

  • dee owens August 14, 2013

  • Angela September 23, 2013

    I Believe alot of Comments on Here are Mis-Confused and Misunderstanding of this Lawsuit…It is not how the prepare and make their brand Cereal, it is How they have Use Deceptive Practice of/by Advertising in the Lawsuit

    Quote”Kellogg of falsely advertising that Mini-Wheats improved kids’ attentiveness, memory and other cognitive functions to a degree not supported by competent clinical evidence.” Unquote.

    It has nothing to do with How good they Taste, it is about the gimmick for Parents to go run out to buy for there children and even for the Adults who is on a Nutrition Kick. However I agree, it is false advertising.

  • KB September 24, 2013

    Why are people submitting their addresses here? You must file a claim! Nobody is going to file a claim on your behalf, this isn’t the correct place for that. Just FYI

  • naim salaam September 30, 2013

  • Rachel September 30, 2013

    My family and I have “DEFINITELY” purchased Frosted-Mini Wheats cereals between the dates of January 28, 2008 and October 1, 2009 within the United States. It is very disappointing that big companies won’t just be honest and just “STOP” printing incompetent and dishonest facts about a product that hasn’t properly been tested.

  • Mahmood Ghasemian November 19, 2013

    MY wife was always beleiver of these products and was purchasing them all the time. We purchased one box every other week.

  • C. C. November 19, 2013

    Thousands of people will be cheated out of their checks because Garden City Group is handling this one.

    • ton February 18, 2014

      hey CC, I’m quite pissed off also, mainly at the administrators Rust and Garden City Group. Who are they to mass deny every claim a whole group puts in that they don’t like that they claimed before. It would be fun to get hundreds of rejected claimers to mass claim with them. 200 pissed off claimers 1 claim per day 100 days. An extra 20000 claims times 5 claims they are working on. What do u think. Harass

  • Kyo July 1, 2014

    I just spoke with GCG and was told that the renegotiation has been completed. The updated settlement terms will be posted to the website shortly. I asked how shortly and I was told to check the web site. The judge was not happy with the compensation for the consumer and required a renegotiation; I am hoping that means claimants will receive more than the original said amount.

  • ANGEL IN CALIFORNIA July 2, 2014

    THANKS. KYO FOR THE UPDATE.
