Post Cereal Class Action Settlement

If you purchased certain Post Cereal products between August 29, 2012 and November 2, 2020, then you may qualify for the Post Cereal Class Action Settlement. This lawsuit claims that Post Foods violated certain laws in labeling certain breakfast cereals with claims that made the products seem healthy, but Plaintiffs allege they were in fact unhealthy due to their added sugar content.

The lawsuit contends that Post Foods, LLC (“Post”) made certain statements on the labels of various sizes and varieties of 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.

Based on the estimated number of claims that will be made, the estimated average payment is approximately $14.28.

Here's a full list of qualifying products, which include:

  • Alpha-Bits
  • Bran Flakes
  • Great Grains
  • Golden Crisp
  • Honey Bunches of Oats
  • Honey Bunches of Oats Granola
  • Honeycomb
  • Raisin Bran
  • Selects
  • Shredded Wheat
  • Waffle Crisp

You have until May 19, 2021 to submit a claim form online.

I need to point out I'm not a lawyer 💼. That said, DO NOT LIE ON THESE! You are using your signature under penalty of perjury. That means you don't want to lie! However, if you actually bought some of these items, feel free swearing to it and file a claim to get your rebate check!

Whenever I post one of these class action settlements, I always feel like Cellino & Barnes … I mean, Galino & Farnes.
