Settlement Information

A proposed settlement has been reached against Mondelēz Global LLC (“MDLZ”) alleging that certain health and wellness representations on belVita Breakfast products were misleading in light of their high added sugar content, or otherwise unlawful. The case is known as McMorrow et al. v. Mondelēz International, Inc., Case No. 17-cv-2327-BAS-JLB (S.D. Cal.). MDLZ denies the allegations.

Class Members who timely submit a valid approved claim are entitled to compensation. Each timely, valid claimant will receive a payment based on the type and estimated amount of Class Products purchased during the Class Period. Based on the estimated number of claims that will be made, the estimated average Cash Award is approximately $34.10. However, the actual amount of the Cash Award any individual receives will depend on both the number of claims made, and each claimant’s purchase history, and may be significantly more or less than $34.10.

Who Is a Class Member?

The Class includes all persons in the United States who, between November 16, 2013 and November 17, 2021 (the “Class Period”), purchased in the United States, for household use and not for resale or distribution, one of the Class Products. The Class Products include MDLZ’s belVita Crunchy Biscuits, belVita Soft Baked Biscuits, belVita Bites, and belVita Sandwiches products bearing the phrase “NUTRITIOUS STEADY ENERGY,” “NUTRITIOUS SUSTAINED ENERGY” or “NUTRITIOUS MORNING ENERGY”.
