If you made a claim for a class action settlement award in In re Blue Buffalo Company, Ltd. Marketing and Sales Practices Litigation, you may have already received your settlement check! And they are bigger than expected!
We’ve gotten reports of class members receiving settlement checks for over $108 without proof of purchase!
Did you receive your award? How much did you get? Tell us in the comments.
In this class action, plaintiffs alleged that labeling for Blue Buffalo pet foods (the “Products”) was false and deceptive in that it breached the True Blue Promise, which states that the Products contain no chicken/poultry by-product meals, no corn, wheat or soy, and no artificial preservatives.
Settlement Fund: $32,000,000.00.
Awards were supposed to be made as follows:
- Claimants with proof of purchase – $5.00 cash for every $50 spent (max $200).
- Claimants without proof of purchase – $5.00 cash for every $50 spent (max $10).
No proof of purchase was required to make a claim.
However, it appears that because not enough class members made valid claims, each valid claimant’s award was increased by over 10 times!
Watch your mailbox for your check and if you missed this one, don’t forget to look for other settlement awards that you may be eligible for!
