Www.CerealSettlement.com – Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
You can get information on the Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats Class Action Lawsuit Settlement at the www.CerealSettlement.com site. The reason for the lawsuit is that the company which is Kellog falsely advertised that the cereal made the children more attentive and that their memory was better. However there have not been any clinical trials to prove this. Kellogg however has said that it has not done anything wrong.
The amount of the Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats Class Action Lawsuit Settlement is $4 million. Payments to the class members will be made out of this fund. Administration costs and attorney’s fees will also come out of this fund. If you want to get any money, you will have to file a claim form by November 28, 2013 the latest. You will be able to do this online or via regular mail. You can either file online at the www.CerealSettlement.com site or you can download and print a copy from that same site.
You can exclude yourself if you want but you must do this by August 10, 2013. When you do this, you will not get any money. In addition you will also not be able to object or speak in court. If you decide that you do not want to exclude yourself but would like to object instead, you can also do this by August 10, 2013. The only thing that you cannot do is to exclude yourself and object at the same time. You can do one or the other. The same things goes with excluding yourself and filing a claim. You cannot do both. You will have to select one or the other.
If you do decide to file the claim form and you do it correctly and on time, then you may get up to $45. You can basically ask for $5 per box of cereal that you bought. Now remember that it cannot be any Kellogg’s cereal. It has to be the Frosted Mini-Wheats. And you can only claim for 3 boxes. This means that you can get up to $15. So where did the $45 come from. You can get this amount if there are not too many people who submit valid claim forms. So this will mean that there is enough money to pay you extra. However if there are more people than expected who file valid claim forms, then you may get even less than $15. So the amount of money you get depends on the number of people who apply.
You will not have to pay the lawyers if you get help from the class counsel. This is because these are the attorneys who are in charge of the case and will speak on your behalf. Their fees will be deducted from the settlement funds. So you will not have to pay them even a dime. If however you feel that you will be better represented by your own attorneys, then you will have to get your own lawyers and you will have to pay your own lawyers. With the amount that you may be getting in terms of compensation, I do not think getting your own lawyers will help you at all. You will not get any more money. In fact you will lose money if you hire your own attorneys. So my suggestion is that you stick with the class counsel. You should be adequately covered by them and you can seek their advice for free. Why not take advantage of that.
Also the Settlement hearing will be held on September 9, 2013. This is when the court will decide if it wants to approve or disapprove the settlement. Usually the court approves and when this happens, the checks will be sent out a little after that. However, there is no exact date of when the checks will be mailed to you. So if you filled out the claim form and are expecting to get a check in the mail, then you should make sure that the settlement administrator has the correct address for you. If you received a notice in the mail then you should know that they do have the correct address. If you did not get a notice in the mail, then you should consider contacting the administrator and making sure they the correct address is on file for you.
