You can take part in this case and get some compensation if you bought Van’s frozen breakfast products. This must have been in the United States. You may be able to get a refund from this case. Apparently Van’s International Foods advertised their products as being natural when the products are actually not natural. The only way that you can get the compensation is to fill out the form. If you did not get a claim form in the mail, you can get your claim form from the www.milorosettlement.com site. You can find it under Important Documents.
The name of the lawsuit is Diana Jill Miloro, et al. v. Van’s International Foods, Inc. The case number is 15PH-CV00642. You must have the products at any time from January 1, 2009 to June 16, 2015. Also, you must have bought the products in the United States. If you submit a valid claim form, you will get up to $18. You can only get this amount if you have proof of purchase. However, if you do not have proof of purchase, then you may get up to $9.99.
To fill out the Van’s Foods Class Action Lawsuit Settlement claim form, you will have to enter your name, your street address,your city, your state and your zip code. You will also have to enter your day time phone number, your evening phone number and your email address. Then you can fill out Section 1. You would only fill out this form if you do not have a valid proof of purchase and are willing to accept $4.99 as the maximum amount for each household. You will first have to identify where you bought the products from. A list of stores is provided and you can select Yes or No for each one of the products. Then you will have to actually identify the different products that you bought from the different stores that you selected.
If you do not have proof of purchase but want to get $3.33 per unit, you can fill out Section 2. The maximum that you can get is $9.99 for each household. So this means that you can submit your claim for only 3 units. You will also have to fill out Section 4. First of all though, to fill Section 3, you will have to first of all identify the store where you bought your products. You will have to select Yes or No next to the list of stores provided. You will then provide the approx. date that you bought the product, the approximate number of units that you bought, the products that you bought and the location where you bought the products. You will have to provide the city and state here. Then you will have to provide the reason why you bought the products. A list of reasons are provided and you will have to select Yes or No for each reason. If you have other reasons besides the ones that are listed, you can also select Other.
Section 4 is the certification section. Here you will certify a number of statements. One of the statements is that you have read the settlement agreement and agree with it or to its terms. Then you have certifying that the information that you have filled out in the claim form is correct. You are also certifying that you have selected the correct tier. In addition, you are certifying that the additional information that you are providing the settlement administrator is accurate.

You will not have to pay these lawyers. They have asked for $1.9 million for their fees. This amount will also cover their costs and fees. The class counsel usually asks the court for a certain amount as a service award for the class representative. That amount is $1500. This amount if approved by the court, will be given to Diana Jill Miloro.
Like any other class action lawsuit settlements, you can opt out of the case if you want. My suggestion is that you should only do this if you wish to sue the defendants yourself. If you do not wish to sue, then you should send in your claim form. If you do not opt out, you can also object to the case if you want. Another option that you can take is to do nothing at all. If you do nothing at all, then you will basically get nothing. You will still remain as a class member.
If you wish to opt out or object, you should check your notice, the settlement website or even call the settlement administrator or the class counsel for information on what to include in your requests to opt out or to object. Some of the deadlines may already have passed so you should contact the class counsel to find out about any other options that you may have.
