Did You Shop at Walmart? Claim Your Part of this Class Action
If you purchased meat or other weighed goods at Walmart, then you may be eligible for a refund. Because, this lawsuit alleges that Walmart claimed certain meat was on sale but miscalculated the price. And, if you’re one of millions who bought it, they may have to give you money back. This is being called a grocery pricing scheme on weighted foods.
The Walmart Meat Prices Class Action Lawsuit is Vassilios Kukorinis, et al. v. Walmart Inc., Case No. 1:19-cv-20592-JEM, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Miami Division.
What is a class action lawsuit settlement?
A class action lawsuit is one with multiple plaintiffs. In other words, there are more than one person being represented by the lawsuit. Oftentimes 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. 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.
Perjury is the intentional act of swearing a false oath or falsifying an affirmation to tell the truth, whether spoken or in writing, concerning matters material to an official proceeding. – Wikipedia
What’s this settlement about?
This lawsuit alleges that Walmart sold weighted goods (for example, anything that has a price per pound) at the wrong price. In the case, an example is given of chicken tenders sold in Nov. 2018. The original price was $5.78 per pound, which for a package weighing 1.18 pounds would cost $6.82. The product was marked down to $3.77 per pound as the “sell by” date approached. So, it should have cost $4.45. However, the final cost actually rang up as $5.93, an overcharge of $1.48.
Who is eligible for a refund?
This lawsuit would include anyone who purchased “Weighted Goods” from Walmart in the U.S. between Feb. 13, 2015 and the date of the settlement notice; and, “whose Weighted Goods’ unit sale price was not accurately reflected in the final sale price,” according to the settlement.
How much will I get back?
The refund amount has yet to be determined. However, Walmart has agreed to pay up to $9.5 million dollars to those affected.
Eligible purchasers could receive:
- Up to $10 with no receipts
- Up to $40 with receipts
- Un-capped amount refunded for anyone who could provide receipts and packaging showing the actual amount of the overcharge.
