Bought Milk? You Might Be Able to Get A Refund

We all know how big a role milk plays is in our diets. You’ve probably had a glass in the last 14 years or so (unless you’ve been vegan that whole time). Likely, you bought that milk at a grocery store of some kind.

Well, if that applies to you (and I’m sure it does to many), you may be able to get a refund for that milk.

ABC10 reported this morning that the results of a class action lawsuit against milk producers and dairy farmers have led to a $52 million settlement payable to the public. This settlement and lawsuit stems from the fixing of prices that milk producers had been performing since 2003.

As a result, if you purchased milk since 2003 and live in any of the following states (or lived in them between 2003 and now), you are entitled to a piece of the settlement. The states that are eligible are as follows:

Arizona, California, the District of Columbia, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, West Virginia, or Wisconsin.

So, if you want to get in on this settlement, head over to the settlement claims website and get your milk refund!

This comes with one warning in mind: The amount of money you’ll get in the settlement changes as more people claim it. When ABC10 reported the settlement earlier this morning, the refund was estimated at $45-$70 per person. As of when this piece was published, that estimate has now dropped to $10-$20 per person.

Well… at the very least, you can use the money to buy a couple more gallons of milk.
