There is a Class Action Lawsuit currently against Post brand cereals for adding sugar. I know my family goes through a few boxes a month of cereal from Post!
Added Sugar Class Action Settlement
If you purchased certain varieties of Post brand cereals between August 29, 2012 and November 2, 2020, you may be a Class Member entitled to monetary compensation.
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.
