LAST DAY TO CLAIM: Bought Milk? You May Be Eligible For Money
This may seem too good to be true, but by now you’ve probably seen many stories on how a settlement has given people who have bought milk in a number of states since 2003 to make a claim, as part of a settlement for the Fresh Milk Products Price-Fixing Class Action Lawsuit. Well, today, January 31, is the last day to sign up for the money, if you haven’t done so already.
Here’s the details:
If you were a resident for at least part of 2003 to present and you bought milk in Arizona, California, the District of Columbia, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, West Virginia, or Wisconsin, you are eligible to file the claim. Eligible milk products are also included in that, which could mean sour cream, cottage cheese, cream cheese, half & half, yogurt, or cream. Individuals can receive between $5-15 and groups (i.e. school programs) can be awarded as much as $140-420.
So what are you waiting for? If you’ve bought milk from those states, hurry on over before the end of today to be eligible for the settlement! Head over to Bought Milk to fill out the form.
In case you are wondering about the lawsuit itself, here’s a quick synopsis on it from Time:
This lawsuit alleges that Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) and its members attempted to limit the production of raw farm milk by prematurely slaughtering more than 500,000 cows, in order to illegally increase the price of milk and other fresh milk products.
The dairy providers have paid $52 million to settle the case, and eligible U.S. citizens can benefit from this settlement.
