If you bought milk in nearby Tennessee in the last 14 years you may be eligible to get money back.
Tennessee is one of 15 states (and the District of Columbia) involved in a class action lawsuit against milk producers.
The states involved are:
- District of Columbia
- New Hampshire
- South Dakota
- West Virginia
The lawsuit accused milk producers of price-fixing. Instead of taking the case to court, the milk producers settled the case for $52 million.
To be part of the settlement, you have to live in one of the 15 states and have bought a milk product (milk, half & half, cream cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, yogurt or cream) at a grocery store or other retailer.
How much money you get back depends on how many people enter the pool to receive benefits. Estimates suggest individuals will receive between $45-70.
