The Settlement resolves a lawsuit over whether The Kellogg Company falsely advertised the function of Frosted Mini-Wheats cereal upon children. The Court did not decide who was right. Instead, both sides agreed to a settlement to avoid the costs and risk of a trial and the Class will get compensation.
Settlement with Kellogg Company Instructions
The Lawsuit claimed that Kellogg falsely advertised that its Frosted Mini-Wheats cereal improved kids’ attentiveness, memory and other cognitive functions to a degree not supported by competent clinical evidence. Kellogg stands by its advertising and denies it did anything wrong, but has agreed to create a fund of $4 million.
