UPDATE: On June 25, 2021, the District Court issued an Order finally Certifying the Class and granting Final Approval of the Settlement. If no appeals are received,  the Class Administrator will begin issuing payments by August 27, 2021. This website will be updated once payments are issued.

Settlement Information

The lawsuit contends that Post Foods, LLC (“Post”) made certain statements on the labels of various sizes and varieties of Honey Bunches of Oats, Great Grains, Raisin Bran, Bran Flakes, Honey Bunches of Oats Granola, Selects, Honeycomb, Shredded Wheat, Alpha-Bits, Waffle Crisp, and Golden Crisp cereals (the “Post Cereals”) that are misleading because the statements suggested the cereals are healthy, when Plaintiffs allege they are unhealthy because of their added sugar. Post maintains that the statements on its cereals are true and that the Post Cereals are nutrient-dense, healthy foods. The Court has not determined whether Plaintiffs or Post are correct.

Class Members who timely submit a valid approved claim are entitled to compensation.  Based on the estimated number of claims that will be made, the estimated average payment is approximately $14.28. However, the actual amount any single person will receive depends on both the number of claims made, and each claimant’s purchase history, and may be significantly more or less than $14.28. The deadline for submitting a claim is May 19, 2021.

Who Is A Class Member?

The Settlement Class includes all persons in the United States who, between August 29, 2012 and November 2, 2020 (the “Class Period”), purchased in the United States, for household use and not for resale or distribution, one of the Class Products.
