Payments Update

The Fresh Milk Products Price-fixing Class Action payout amounts have been finalized. We received more claims than anticipated, which lowered the expected payout amounts on a fixed settlement fund. Individuals will receive $6.79, and entities will be receiving $190.13.

The appeals deadline has now passed, but unfortunately, there were 3 appeals submitted by objectors to the settlement, which means payments cannot start until those appeals are resolved. It is now in the hands of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

Regrettably, the wheels of justice don’t always move at the pace we want, and objectors to a settlement can hold up payments for all class members. We are working hard to resolve the appeals so we can get payments in the hands of all claimants. We do apologize for the delays and truly appreciate your patience with this process.

We are STILL battling the last objector appeal of the three in the $52M Fresh Milk Products Antitrust settlement. Unfortunately, this process can take anywhere from 9 – 12 months when objectors are involved. We are working hard to resolve this appeal so payouts to the class can begin. We will keep you informed of new updates as we know them! For more information about the case or the payout process, please review our FAQs.
