Bought milk in the state of Michigan? You might be owed a refund
If you bought milk or milk products in the State of Michigan over the past 14 years, you are owed a refund.
Michigan is one of 15 states along with the District of Columbia involved in a class action lawsuit against milk producers. The $52 million dollar settlement is over price-fixing. The lawsuit accuses dairy farmers are taking part in an antitrust conspiracy with the CWT in the premature slaughtering of dairy cows and by reducing herds, the milk producers were able to keep higher dairy product prices.
The defendants deny the allegations but have decided to settle to avoid a trial.
Residents must live in one of the 15 states included in the lawsuit (Michigan is included). Consumers must have bought any milk product ( milk, cream cheese, cottage cheese, cream, yogurt etc) at any grocery store or retailer since 2003. No proof of purchase is needed.
The estimated refund per person is between $45-70. How much money you get back depends on how many people file claims. Claims must be submitted by January 31, 2017 in order to be eligible for the money. To file a claim: Go to http://www.boughtmilk.com
