- The Kellogg Company will pay out $4 million after a California judge signed off on a revised penalty in a class action lawsuit over Frosted Mini-Wheats claims.
- The lawsuit targeted marketing claims from 2008 that Kellogg's cereal could improve attentiveness for children by almost 20%.
- A previous $10.5 million settlement from 2011 was rejected after it was determined that some of the money, which had been tagged for charity donations, would benefit Kellogg in some way.
You can find an overview of the Mini-Wheats settlement online at cerealsettlement.com, where it states, "Under the settlement, Kellogg also agreed to make certain changes to the Frosted Mini-Wheats marketing and labeling." Kellogg had previously agreed to this new $4 million settlement, but now that the judge has signed off, it looks like everyone can begin wrapping things up and distributing the cash.
