Claim Form: Kellogg Mini-Wheats Claim Form
Case Name: Dennis v. Kellogg, Case No. 3:09 – CV – 01786 – IEG(WMC)
Case Summary:

The plaintiffs alleged that Kellogg falsely advertised it’s Mini-Wheats cereal as improving children’s brain power, boosting attentiveness, memory, and other cognitive functions. Kellogg continues to stand by these ridiculous claims, but settled the case before it went to court.

This is a case where we think Kellogg should have won by virtue of it’s claim being so daft, nobody could possibly have been misled by it. If anyone purchase mini-wheats because they thought it would make their children smarter, we question the wisdom of giving that person $15 let alone allowing them to retain custody of the child.

Nonetheless, thanks to some marketers overzealous claims, Kellogg is being forced to gift it’s customers $15. Think of it as compensation for their insulting your intelligence.

  1. What’s the limit?

    ADMIN – Hi Saffie,

    The limit is estimated to be 3 boxes ($15). If the fund is under-subscribed that could end up being as high as $45 and if the fund is oversubscribed it could be lower.

    • I fear I maY have submitted twice. I often leave tabs open to come back to later. Filled out for it and remembered I had already submitted one. What can I do to make sure I only get 1 check. I ate several boxes but understand the 3 box limit.

      I greatly apologize for any issues. I hope this can be easily fixed.

      ADMIN – Hi Mariah,

      Usually administrators will simply delete multiple claims from the same person. But, if you are particularly concerned, you can contact the administrator and they will delete the duplicate entries.

  2. Mariah Marsh….I contacted the administrator they are adament that no payments have gone out even processed yet. Are you sure his refund was from this settlement.

    • All he said before was it was from cereal. When I inquired further he stated it wasn’t this one. I just assumed it was because he told me about Kelloggs rebate. I bought more than 3 but understand the 3 box limit.

  3. Why would anyone even apply for such a claim. It’s sad that people grapple over a few free bucks just because it is free.

  4. Do not expect any checks anytime soon. I received an email from the claim Admin and this case is being appealed. This can take another 1 to 2 years. Just wanted to let everyone know.

  5. Could an admin please comment on Stefani post as I cannot find anything about being appealed ? The website does not show that or atleast I can’t find it anywhere thank you.

  6. I always purchase Kellogs Frosted Mini Weats, I have purchased many boxes between 1/28/2008 and January 2014. I understand that 3 boxes are the maximum I can claim.

  7. I have purchased several boxes of Kelloggs Mini Wheats over a period of months. If claim for 3 is the limit I’ll take it gladly. Thanks

  8. “Kellogg falsely advertised it’s Mini-Wheats”
    “by virtue of it’s claim”
    “Kellogg is being forced to gift it’s customers $15″

    It’s “its.” Please. Would these phrases make sense if you substituted “it is” for “its”? (“Kellogg falsely advertised it is claim”?) No. Come on. You’re (not your) an educated man. Write like one.

    As compensation for being detained by a grammar cop without a warrant (but definitely with probable cause), I offer you the following link which you may or may not have, but which is certainly useful:

    • uh “it’s” actually also shows possession. Have you ever taken a grammar class? Maybe you should do your research before saying something is wrong. Like Sarah’s house does not mean Sarah is house, it simple means it belongs to her. So yeah, it’s is actually correct.

  9. Settlement Hearing

    A Settlement Hearing was held on September 9, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. After the hearing, the Court approved the settlement. If there are no appeals, the cash payments will be distributed 30 days after the close of the Claim-In Period. If the settlement is overturned on appeal, no cash payments will be made.

    The last day to file a claim was Nov 29 2013. I would think an appeal was filed. You can’t follow these things too close. Time is against you.
