A Primer On The Milk Lawsuit Settlement: Details You Need To Know
Milk is one of the most essential food items many individuals consume regularly. It has many variants aimed to cater to many targeted individuals. There are options for many people, from those who identify as vegetarians to those who have strict dietary requirements.
This commodity is also readily available through different means. You can easily buy them from your local store to snagging some for your supply online. However, one of the most popular ways of having your supply of milk is through retailers nationwide.
Because of the large number of consumers of the product, any alleged misdeed done to harm its audience is highly likely to cause a ruckus with class action lawsuits coming in the way not long after.
This has been the case between plaintiffs and the National Milk Producers Federation in a milk class action lawsuit filed in a district court in California.
The aforementioned milk class action revolves around the claim that the collection of milk and dairy producers in the country have conspired with each other in an alleged antitrust conspiracy to be able to manipulate the prices of milk products.
It was contended that they could dictate the price of milk products and maintained a higher price to them.
To avoid further legal action in court, milk companies have decided to settle. The agreement made the milk settlement totaled more than $52 million.
Americans residing in the states of California, where the milk and dairy class action lawsuit was filed, were able to make their claims.
Also, those residing in a handful of states such as Arizona, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, etc., were able to join the claims process.
These consumers have brought their milk and other related dairy products since 2003 from different retailers.
Monetary compensation varies depending on the amount of milk and dairy products purchased.
Also, since the fund will be distributed among other fellow class members, the final amount would change depending on the pool of class members with a valid claim to the bought milk settlement.
As of writing, many have already successfully received compensation for their claims. However, there are still some out there who are having a hard time receiving the compensation that they deserve.
