Dole Fruit Class Action Settlement, Claim $9 with No Receipts!
If you purchased any of the Dole fruit listed in this lawsuit, in the past six years, then you may be entitled to compensation in this $4.3 million Dole 100% Juice Fruit Bowl settlement. Don’t worry about trying to find your receipts, because you can file with or without proof of purchase.
The plaintiffs allege that Dole misrepresented their products with deceptive labeling. Dole admits no wrongdoing, but has agreed to settle.
The settlement is known as Blankenship v. Dole Packaged Foods, LLC, Case No. 23-LA0361, Circuit Court for St. Clair County, State of Illinois.
Not to be confused with another Dole fruit snacks class action lawsuit known as Broussard, et al. v. Dole Packaged Foods LLC, Case No. 3:23-cv-03320, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. In that case, plaintiffs allege that the so-called “healthy” fruit snacks Dole makes are actually full of sugar. We should be seeing more of this settlement in the near future.

What is a class action lawsuit settlement?
For example, a class action lawsuit is one with multiple plaintiffs. In other words, there is 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.
