Details on how to file a claim for the Barbara’s Bakery class action lawsuit settlement have arrived. If you purchased a Barbara’s Bakery product between 2008 and 2013, you may be eligible to claim up to $100 from the class action settlement.
The Barbara’s Bakery settlement resolves a class action lawsuit (Trammell v. Barbara’s Bakery) that all alleges the company mislabeled its cereal and snack products as “all natural” when they actually contain genetically modified (GMO) ingredients.
Barbara’s Bakery denies the allegations, but has agreed to resolve the litigation by offering up to $100 in reimbursements to consumers and removing the terms “all natural,” “no artificial additives,” “no artificial preservatives” and “no artificial flavors” from its packaging on foods that contain GMOs or artificial ingredients.
A federal judge preliminarily approved the class action settlement on June 21, 2013. A Final Fairness Hearing will be held November 8, 2013.
