What’s this settlement about?
Purchasers have alleged that the labeling of Benecol Spreads claims that the product contains “No Trans Fats” and “No Trans Fatty Acids,” but that Benecol Spreads contain Trans Fats through the use of partially hydrogenated oils, and as such the labels on Benecol Spreads are false and misleading. Defendants deny the allegations and contend that the label is not misleading and clearly identified that the product contained insignificant amounts of Trans Fats.

What is a class action lawsuit settlement?
For example, a class action lawsuit is one with multiple plaintiffs. In other words, there are more than one person being represented by the lawsuit. In other words, a plaintiff or plaintiffs file the case on behalf of many people who were affected by aren’t involved in the actual suit. For example, if you purchased an item that was later determined to be involved in a class action lawsuit, you may be entitled to compensation. If you’re included in the class or group of people affected, then you can file a claim to receive money, coupons or replacement products. But, each case is different, and each will specify who is included. In addition, class action lawsuits may require proof that you are part of the group of affected people. In this case, proof of purchase or other specified proof is needed. However, in some cases, no proof is required. In that case, you can file a claim without proving that you are part of the class of people affected. Of course, when you file a claim you are doing so under penalty of perjury. So, do not file if you do not qualify.
