Rice Krispies Cereal Class Action Lawsuit Settlement

Just in case you haven’t hear the makers of the cereal Rice Krispies have settles a lawsuit against them for some nutritional claims they made about this cereal.  If you purchase Rice Krispies or Choco Krispies between June 1st, 2009 and March 1st, 2010, you are entitled to receive up $15 in compensation for buying up to 3 boxes as part of this class action lawsuit settlement.

Just as a reminder to my long time readers.  back in the Fall of 2009 Vocalpoint offered a free box and Rice Krispies coupons. I actually got these coupons and also bought the cereal with those coupons, so I filled out my claim here.

Thanks, Swaggrabber!

    We buy about 5 boxes a month, every month. I am not sure of the date I buy them but I guesstimated it. Thanks for letting us know.

    These sort of class-action lawsuits leave me feeling conflicted. I guess if I bought a product specifically because of certain claims the manufacturer made about the product, and I found those to be untrue.. THEN I would feel deceived and entitled to some sort of compensation. But, I have never bought Rice Krispies under the delusion that they provided any sort of nutrition.. I bought them to make Rice Krispy Treats! Yum! And totally unhealthy! And I don’t care! :) So, I would feel kind-of guilty taking any money back from the company. But, I don’t begrudge anyone else who chooses to do so. Interesting moral quandry.

      Well said Sarah!

    @Sarah, it may make you feel better to know that there is a note on the site stating that any money not claimed will go to charities. :-)

    If I get ‘compensation’ refund, will most likely just use it for more cereal anyway, so Kelloggs really loses nothing but attorney fees. I don’t feel conflicted because advertising truthfulness in this country sucks. They don’t care as long as the profits show a higher margin than the previous quarter. At $5.00 a box of cereal, I have no problem sending for a refund because of their inflated advertised sense of good health because of their cereal. And yes, they were about that much in 2009 for a large box of cereal (at least where I live.)

    I completely agree but I do think there needs to be some sort of penalty for putting false information on a package. I’m not sure if this was intentional or not but I don’t want companies thinking they can get away with lying to use about what is in their products.

    Well said Sarah. Some attorneys just go around looking for stuff to file class action law suits on. All this does in the end is makes the companies go up on their prices and make their product sizes smaller. In the end no one is the winner but the attorneys. I personally think there are a lot of worst cerals out there than rice krispies and Kellogg’s I feel is one brand that I would trust over some others. I only eat Honey Nut Cherrio’s but I know they are not the most nutritional. The doctor told my 89 yr old Mom that he recommended her to eat Total.

    We buy rice krispies cereal often, but I am confused. Can you claim it without having your receipts for that time frame? certainly i don’t keep grocery receipts that far long. how does that work?

      Cynthia,
      Yes you do not need to submit receipts.
