Class action lawsuit settlements mean a little spending money for eligible consumers
If you pour Kellogg’s Raisin Bran or Frosted Mini-Wheats into your cereal bowl, you may be eligible to claim a little cash. Better hurry, though. The deadline to file a claim is Sept. 7.
Kellogg’s agreed to a $13 million class-action lawsuit settlement. The lawsuit alleged the company labeled certain cereals as heart-healthy or lightly sweetened, yet they contained excessive sugar.
Consumers who bought various Kellogg’s Raisin Bran, Smart Start or Frosted Mini-Wheats between Aug. 29, 2012, and May 1, 2020, can file a claim online.
The estimated average payout is about $16. The company is not admitting wrongdoing by settling the suit.
