Www.SingerECJSettlement.com – Horizon Organic and Silk Milk Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
I usually think that anything organic is better and I usually dole out the extra cash to get them. I would buy organic any chance that I got. However, you have to be aware that not all organic products are good for you. You have to look at the ingredients list and make sure that you are getting what you think you are getting. The latest lawsuit is on organic milk and soy milk. So you can take part in the Horizon Organic and Silk Milk Class Action Lawsuit Settlement if you bought two products mentioned and some others like Yogurt, Tuberz and even others that have the Evaporated Cane Juice as one of the ingredients any time between January 1, 2005 to April 19, 2013. The company apparently misled the consumers by listing the ingredient as juice when it is actually sugar. You will have to fill out a claim form at the www.SingerECJSettlement.com site in order to get any of the benefits for this case.
If you want to get some money back because the defendants (meaning the company that sold the products) said that it did not contain as much sugar as it actually does (they basically lied to you) then you will have to fill out the claim form by October 26, 2013. This is a true deadline meaning that you cannot miss this deadline. There is no appeal process for missing this deadline. In addition you can only file if you live in the United States and bought the products in the United States. The lawsuit that was filed is known as Brenda Singer v. WWF Operating Company. The case number is 1:13-CV-21232-UU.
Before you fill out the form however, it is a good idea to read the notice. You can get a copy of the notice on the Horizon Organic and Silk Milk Class Action Lawsuit Settlement website at www.SingerECJSettlement.com. You can also have a copy sent to you by writing to the Settlement Administrator at the address provided online at the site. A toll free phone number is also provided if you prefer to call. There are two part to the claim form that you will have to fill out. The first part which is known as Part A will ask for your information. The second part is about the purchase of the products mentioned. You must file this claim only if you bought one of the products mentioned. Then you must select whether you have an original sales receipt or if you do not. I think most people would fall into the second category. Who keeps receipts for that long? In fact, who keeps receipts at all. Most people throw away their receipts. I have thrown out all my receipts recently because they were cluttering up my desk. If you do not need them for tax purposes most people do not keep them.
So if you do have receipts, then you can get 75% of what you paid for the products. However, your claim cannot be more than $50 per household. If you do have the receipts then you must send them with your claim form. If you do not have the receipts however, then you will only get 25% of the amount that you paid for the products. You can only claim for 5 products for each household. You must also sign the form, date it and print your name on it.
The total amount of the settlement fund is $800,000. Out of this amount will be deducted the legal fees and any other administrative fees and costs. Your legal counsel in this case is Lance A. Harke of Miami Shores, Florida. You can select to hire your own lawyer but you will have to pay for this lawyer that you hired on your own. I think if you are considered a part of this settlement than you should take part. I hate it when companies try to trick you into thinking that something is healthier than it actually is. Especially if you are watching your diet and trying to lose some pounds. Even though this may be considered minor for some people, I think it affects many people negatively. I am glad that companies are being held accountable for what they put in their products and how they list them in the ingredients list.
