Details on how to file a claim for the Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats class action lawsuit settlement have arrived. If you purchased Frosted Mini-Wheats in the United States between 2008 and 2009, you may be eligible to receive up to $15 cash from the class action settlement.
The Mini-Wheats settlement will resolve a four-year-old class action lawsuit (Dennis v. Kellogg Co.) that accuses Kellogg of falsely advertising that Mini-Wheats improved kids’ attentiveness, memory and other cognitive functions to a degree not supported by competent clinical evidence.
Kellogg stands by its advertising and denies any wrongdoing but has agreed to establish a $4 million class action lawsuit settlement fund to refund consumers and resolve the litigation. A federal judge preliminarily approved the class action settlement on May 5, 2013.
Class Members of the Frosted-Mini Wheats class action settlement include anyone who purchased the cereal in the United States between January 28, 2008 and October 1, 2009.
Class Members may seek reimbursement of $5 per box of cereal purchased, up to a maximum of three boxes ($15).
The only way to receive a cash payment is to submit a valid claim online at www.CerealSettlement.com or postmarked to the Settlement Administrator no later than November 29, 2013.
