Kellogg’s Settles Class Action Lawsuit Over Sugary Cereals

July 28, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Michigan-based breakfast cereals company Kellogg’s (Kellogg Sales Company) has agreed to a $13 million settlement benefiting consumers who purchased certain Kellogg cereals labeled “heart healthy” or “lightly sweetened.” The lawsuit alleged Kellogg violated certain laws by labeling three of its cereals with certain nutritious statements even though plaintiffs alleged the products contained excessive amounts of sugar. The class action lawsuit was open to anyone who purchased Raisin Bran, Smart Start, or Frosted Mini-Wheats cereals between August 29, 2012 and May 1, 2020. The suit (Hadley et al. vs. Kellogg Sales Company) was brought before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California.
