Wesson Oil Class Action Settlement, Claim with No Receipts
If you purchased Wesson Oil labeled as Natural in the timeframe indicated, then you may be entitled to part of the Wesson Oil Conagra Settlement. If you resided in California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, Oregon, South Dakota, or Texas and purchased WESSON OIL PRODUCTS in that state, you may be eligible to receive a payment from a $3 million class action settlement. A newly proposed Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit (In re ConAgra Foods, Inc, C.D. Cal., Case No. CV 11-05379-CJC (AGRx), MDL No. 2291). This new Settlement replaces the previous settlement that was appealed and reversed by the Ninth Circuit.

The Defendant denies any and all wrongdoing of any kind whatsoever and has asserted various defenses that it believes are meritorious.
What Products are Included? Where were they sold?
“Wesson Oil Products” means Wesson brand cooking oils, including Wesson Vegetable Oil, Wesson Canola Oil, Wesson Corn Oil, and Wesson Best Blend, all of which were marketed, advertised, and sold as “Natural” during the applicable Class Periods.

Is a receipt required?
Proof of purchase is not required. However, if you have receipts, you may be able to claim more.
How much will I get back?
Class Members who timely submit a valid Claim Form may receive $0.15 per unit of Wesson Oil Products purchased during the applicable Class Period. There does not appear to be a limit as to how many units you can claim.
Recovery is limited to one claim per Household, which is defined as all persons residing at the same physical address. If the total value of all valid Claims Forms and amounts identified for direct distribution exceeds or falls short of the funds available for distribution to Class Members (after deducting the portion of Settlement Funds designated for New York and Oregon Class Members), then the amounts of the cash payments will be reduced or increased per Claim filed (or “pro rata”), as necessary, to use all of the remaining funds available for distribution to Class Members. Any such pro rata adjustment will be calculated prior to distribution of funds (i.e., will be made in a single distribution).

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.
