Truvia class action lawsuit settlement

Cargill Inc. has agreed to settle a class action lawsuit alleging it misled consumers by labeling its Truvia sweeteners as “natural.” If you have purchased Truvia for personal use, you could be eligible for benefits from the class action settlement.

Cargill was hit with two class action lawsuits that challenged its labeling and marketing of Truvia Natural Sweetener products. The plaintiffs allege they were misled by statements on the Truvia labels, which indicated Truvia was “natural.” However, the plaintiffs allege that the Truvia products were not natural because they contained ingredients that were “highly processed” and/or derived from genetically modified organisms. Further, the Truvia class action lawsuits alleged that the descriptions of the Truvia products were inaccurate or misleading and violated the consumer protection and breach of warranty laws of several states.

Cargill denies that its marketing, advertising and/or labeling of Truvia is false, misleading or deceptive to consumers or that it violates any laws. However, Cargill agreed to settle the Truvia false advertising class action lawsuit to avoid the risk and expense of trial.



Under the terms of the Truvia class action settlement, Cargill will offer cash refunds or vouchers to Class Members who submit valid claims. Cargill has also agreed to make certain changes to the labels of its Truvia product and add language to the Truvia website to further describe the ingredients.

Who’s Eligible

Class Members of the Truvia class action settlement include U.S. residents who purchased any Truvia products in the United States for household use or personal consumption from July 1, 2008 through July 24, 2014. The Truvia products covered by this class action settlement include Truvia Natural Sweetener in packet, spoonable jar and baking blend forms, of any size or quantity.

Potential Award

Cash refund of up to $45 or vouchers valued at $90, depending on how many Class Members submit timely and valid Claim Forms. Each voucher can be redeemed for Truvia products. The value of the benefits for which a Class Member is eligible depends on the number and type, or value, of the Truvia Natural Sweetener Products that the Class Member purchased, as outlined below: Truvia class action settlement awards Awards may be reduced on a pro rata basis, depending on how many valid Claim Forms are submitted.



UPDATE: Class action settlement checks were mailed to eligible consumers the first week of May 2015. Checks are averaging $31, according to reports from Top Class Actions viewers.

Proof of Purchase

None required, though the Settlement Administrator may request verification of the Truvia products you purchased. Class Members submitting a claim for the Truvia class action settlement must attest under the penalty of perjury that they purchased Truvia products between July 1, 2008 and July 24, 2014.

    Another bounced check here! $12 fee.

  • gina grinstead October 26, 2015

    Same here about getting a bad check. And of course I had to pay the bounced check fee. There should be someone that is handling that issue. I know I have seen a lot of comments saying the same thing.

  • Bethany Williams October 15, 2015

    SHAME ON YOU TRUVIA! THEY SENT ME A BAD CHECK! CASHED IT AND IT BOUNCED! THEY ARE GOING TO GET IN TROUBLE!

  • susan rice October 11, 2015

    I just read about this lawsuit, is there any way I can file a claim now?

  • Estella October 6, 2015

    I filled out the required forms and mailed them within the time limit but never received a check.. I am wondering what happed.

  • Carlos October 2, 2015

    Just a fyi guys. Anytime you present a check and it bounces and you pay fees you can go after the issuer for your fees. If they refuse then you can sue them for double damages. Writing a bad check is illegal.

  • Rhonda Felder September 8, 2015

    Neither link to the Lawsuit website works. What now?

  • Johnny Torrez September 8, 2015

    FINALLY received a check here in California this past weekend on Friday September 4th. It was in the amount of $69.37 – Better than nothing I guess.

  • Mayra September 7, 2015

    Did not receive Truvia Check. E-mailed Dahl, They never responded to the e-mail also.

  • Lisa Lind September 3, 2015

    Spoke with Ann Linton at 952-562-3619 today who said to mail proof of the check being returned to a.linton@dahladministration.com and she will take care of getting new checks sent.

      Susan, Go see their accountant if you didn’t get a check. Her name is Helen Waite. Go to HELL AND WAIT !! You fake filer!!! That $15 is gonna make or break ya huh??

      • Sharon March 22, 2016

        Holden-Whats right is right and whats wrong is wrong. Is this accusation really necessary? How do you know some of these people are fake filers? These companies that mislead consumers have to account for their actions. Moron.

  • susan July 11, 2015

    I never received my check and I did file a form…who do I go to now.

  • GoodC July 10, 2015

    I received my check for the Truvia settlement.

  • Tim July 7, 2015

    DId anyone else try to cash the check? Ours came back as non-payable and refer to maker, the bank doesn’t know why but guessed it may have been marked stop payment or insufficient funds. Another comment on the board stated their bank did the same thing?

    • Tina August 15, 2015

      Mine was returned this week also. I was pretty miffed at the $12 returned item fee the bank charged. Called the bank and they said that in SMALL PRINT on the check, below the dollar amount there is a cash by date, which is short dated. My check was dated 5/1/15 and the cash by date was 7/1/15. So, not your typical stale dated item (which is 6 mo) so they got me! :/

  • Randi July 2, 2015

    I received a check yesterday for $31.51. Not sure why? I never received a check back in May. I thought my claim was denied. Although I only filed 1 claim.

  • Courtney June 4, 2015

    I received my checked tried to cash it at Walmart and it wasn’t authorized. What should I do I am very upset. I have called the Trucua administrator and left a message I don’t know who to contact

    • Tim July 7, 2015

      Courtney, I deposited into bank and it came back as unpayable? I got charged a return item fee!

  • Ruth Hammett May 19, 2015

    I received a check in the amount o $47.67. I do not remember the date.

  • George Dickson May 19, 2015

    Why does this website continue to list that have expired claim deadlines? In fact, all of the settlements in the sidebar are past their filing deadlines. I decided that this is most unhelpful and betrays negligent understaffing among these webmasters.

  • Laura May 14, 2015

At this time, we do not have an exact date for the distribution, but we do anticipate that payments will be made in the next 60 to 90 days

  • nate April 1, 2015

They don’t have an exact date, but checks expect to be out within 60 days, according to message. This is not April fools, its for real.. Waiting on checks yippie.

    • Vivian October 4, 2015

      Me to. Got nothing.

  • Scott March 5, 2015

    Call or email to make sure your claim was received. I sent an email and was told there was no record of my claim, even though I had a claim no number. Was told there was probably a glitch in the system when my claim was first submitted so it did not register. Nothing can be done now. I encourage you to follow up on yours.

  • dana March 4, 2015

    I think someone is lying about getting that money. How is it that no one else got a check

  • Sharey March 4, 2015

    It does seem a little suspect that only one person has reported receiving their money, but it’s still early maybe today we will get more reports or at least get our own checks.. Still waiting in central cali

  • Jason March 4, 2015

    So no one else but 1 person received a check. Not sure what to think. Even if checks were sent out yet.

  • Brandi W March 3, 2015

  • jackie February 27, 2015

    Has anyone received a check yet? I filed a claim , got conformation number, but no check yet?

  • Anonymous February 18, 2015

    CORRECTION 12/4/14: The original article incorrectly stated that the total class action settlement amount was $7.9 million and that Cargill had paid previously paid a $5 million class action settlement. The total settlement amount is $6.1 million, inclusive of attorneys’ fees, and the original $5 million settlement was rejected by a federal judge. The article has been updated accordingly. http://topclassactions.com/lawsuit-settlements/lawsuit-news/45083-cargill-agrees-6-1m-truvia-false-ad-settlement/

  • Don't listen to Kelrok January 12, 2015

    Ignore whatever date Kelrok posts, he is going on multiple claim pages and saying when payments are going out. Hasn’t been right yet, just someone who apparently gets off on thinking he is fooling people.

  • sharp301 January 12, 2015

    I don’t see anywhere on court documents or settlement page when checks will be distributed kelrok?

  • sharp301 December 23, 2014

    Anyone know if and when checks will be arriving in mailboxes? lol

  • Nola woodring December 17, 2014

    I guess a check will be coming. I’ve used it ever since Dr. Strand I think from Usana recommended it. I’ve used it to sweeten anything I was cooking that required sugar along with the cereal I eat every morning .

    • wen January 24, 2015

      I am just now seeing this and it seems odd that you would post this on Dec 4, 2014 and the deadline for filing was Dec 5, 2014 – being a diabetic, I used this product mainly because it was “natural” for many years!!!

    Shouldn’t Tier 1 be 20 or more and Tier 2 be 10-19? (I’m not sure if this info is copied over from legal docs or not but table looks incorrect.) Thanks…
