SAN DIEGO, May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The following statement is being issued by Blood Hurst & O'Reardon, LLP regarding the Kellogg's Mini-Wheats Class Action Settlement.
A $4 million settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit over Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats branded cereals.
Consumers alleged in the lawsuit that Kellogg's Mini-Wheats cereal was falsely advertised to improve kids' attentiveness, memory and other cognitive functions to a degree not supported by competent clinical evidence. Kellogg stands by its advertising and denies it did anything wrong. The settlement was the result of a compromise.
If approved by the court, the settlement will result in cash refunds for up to three boxes of cereal purchased during the time of the alleged false advertising.
To be eligible for a refund, purchasers must submit a valid claim. Claims can be submitted online at www.CerealSettlement.com. For further information, visit www.bholaw.com, or call 888-561-9184. The actual amount claimants will receive will depend on the number of valid claims submitted.
"This settlement represents an excellent recovery for consumers," said Timothy Blood of Blood Hurst & O'Reardon, LLP, one of the lawyers representing consumers. "If you bought Mini-Wheats between January 28, 2008 and October 1, 2009, you should submit a claim," he added.
Blood Hurst & O'Reardon represents consumers, insurance policy holders and investors in class action litigation in state and federal courts throughout the country.
