Case Name

Birbrower, et al. v Quorn Foods, Inc.
Case No. CV 16-01346-DMG-AJWx.
United States District Court for the Central District of California

Case Summary

The lawsuit alleges that Quorn failed to adequately disclose that the “Mycoprotein” used in its products is a mold (member of the fungi family).. Plaintiff further alleges the following statement on the labels of Quorn’s products is false and misleading: “Quorn [products] are made with mycoprotein (“myco” is Greek for “fungi”) and are completely meatless and soy-free. There are believed to be over 600,000 varieties of fungi in the world, many of which are among the most sought after foods like varieties of mushroom, truffles, and morels.” Plaintiff contends this statement misleadingly suggests that Quorn Products are made from mushrooms, truffles or morels, as opposed to mold. Quorn denies Plaintiff’s allegations and disputes that the quoted language was intended to, or actually does, convey the information Plaintiff suggests.

Quorn denies any and all wrongdoing of any kind whatsoever, and denies any liability to Plaintiff and to the Settlement Class

    Who keep receipts of CC statements from years ago.

    ADMIN – Hi John,

    Your credit card issuer can print duplicates for up to 24 months.

    • Linda Mayrand says:

      My walmart card only shows last 3 months statements, for anything older I have to submit an order for them, each month individually, and it takes up to 30 days to get each one, 2012 is 5 years ago, and 2014 is 3 years ago, you simply cannot get those statements online, so its a huge hassle to get statements, and not sure if they charge for them, and how would you know by a statement if the person actually purchased the products, its not itemized of what the person actually purchased, just total amounts. And nobody saves grocery receipts from that long ago,thats just silly! I throw mine out after I put my food away!

      ADMIN – Hi Linda,

      Those are the terms of the settlement. If you disagree you can file and objection.

    • john says:

      I know, but I’m just saying.

      But how about the people that canceled their card, or paid in cash.

      ADMIN – Hi John,

      I guess they are out of luck. Granted, nowadays the majority of transactions are cashless.

    • D Gee says:

      The statement is not going to list everything I bought anyway, it only lists total spent, so I guess I am screwed. I am thoroughly disgusted that these products are made from mold!

      ADMIN – Hi D,

      At least you are getting a little something back. I am glad they allow statements otherwise we would be in a world of trouble.

  2. JASON says:

    I use to buy Quorn products on a regular basis but always use cash for groceries. Why on earth would I keep grocery receipts? This is very unfair. WHoever the lawyers are that agreed to these terms obviously didn’t think this through too well.

    ADMIN – Hi Jason,

    If you disagree we the terms of the settlement you can always be an objector. There is a process for that.

  3. Lisa says:

    How do I submit the paper claim form? Where is it? I only see online option.

    ADMIN – Hi Lisa,

    The form is on the tab called documents: https://quornfoodssettlement.com/settlement-documents/

  4. Dawn says:

    Fortunately for me I purchased by the case on Amazon and you can print your invoices from as far back as your purchases go (at least I think they do my purchases went back to 2009) and if you have ever been audited by the IRS and had to prove the head of household filing status you would save all your grocery receipts. LOL….

  5. julie flores says:

    i purchased those products a lot… I do have my cc statements each month though is several pages long, should I submit my whole statement for each month or just the page of it where it shows a retailer that sold that product? and should I highlight it? thanks

    ADMIN – Hi Julie,

    Just the page and do mark it.

  6. Cory says:

    I can’t attach individual pdf files that I was able to download from my cc website.
    How do I submit 40 cc statements?

    ADMIN – Hi Cory,

    You could submit by mail or by creating a single document

  7. Jenn says:

    I took screenshots of my cc statements and attached them. They are .png files but when I hit “Submit claim”, I get a message in red letters saying it has to be “png” “jpeg” “doc”. So, it lists “.png” but the system is keeping me from submitting my claim.

    ADMIN – Hi Jenn,

    Perhaps the files need to be smaller.

  8. Melissa says:

    So since nothing on the card statement will specify what it is that we purchased, just that we purchased something at that store, does that matter? I buy Quorn at Walmart all the time, but I don’t keep receipts. My bank statement will just show I spent money at Walmart, not what I bought there.

    ADMIN – Hi Melissa,

    That is correct. As long as the store sells Quorn you don’t need the specifics.

  9. Rosemarie Villacis says:

    In one month I grocery shop each week, so 4 or 5 large purchases for the same store may be on one monthly statement. Would that statement count as one, or 4, if 4 grocery trips are reflected on the statement?

    ADMIN – Hi Rosemarie,

    My understanding is that each entry counts.

  10. Becky morris says:

    I also bought with cash

    ADMIN – Hi Becky,

    Just claim as much as you can. We realize the settlement is not perfect but there are reasons why it was set up this way.

  11. P. Dean says:

    I purchased Quorn products on a regular basis I always paid cash.

    Now what I guess I am out of luck !!!!!

  12. nancy L linville says:

    My printer is not working, but I have receipts. Can I complete online form and mail receipts without form attached or can you mail one to me?

    ADMIN – Hi Nancy,

    I don’t think you can but let me check with the admin.

  13. Quornelius Griswald says:

    I do have credit card statements. I also have cash register receipts, but will take awhile to go through 5 years’ worth. Is there a guideline for how much compensation there would be for a credit card statement submission in lieu of a CRR? Just wondering if it’s worth one’s while to go through all those receipts. Thank you.

    ADMIN – Hi Quornelius,

    You are the only one that can estimate the value of your time. I sometimes skip settlements because it is too much paperwork.

  14. A.M. says:

    My husband and I have a few different cards in either of our names. Can I send statements in in both of our names? We don’t always use the same cards or accounts when we are chasing the points down

    ADMIN – Hi AM,

    This is not limited to a single card statement.

  15. Shannon says:

    This product made my husband severely sick. Doubled over and dehydrated. Normally I purchase other vegetarian products from other companies. This time I tried to purchase something new and different for him. Only to find out it was mold from vats. He was out of work for days because of this. And the company couldn’t even offer an apology. Disgusting.

  16. JoAnna says:

    How often do people keep grocery receipts for long periods?!

    ADMIN – Hi JoAnna,

    About 1 in 10 people. I keep mine for three years.

  17. Vince D says:

    Does Quorn have to pay the 126 million regardless of how many people submit a claim? Or is it up to 126mil? I guess I’m having more of an intern debate on this one. I don’t really agree with the case / settlement. BUT if they have to pay I might as well submit a claim right? I’ve been a vegetarian for years so I’m sure I could max out the claim.

    ADMIN – Hi Vince,

    If you are a class member file what you consider is fair based on your consumption and don’t worry so much as to the rules of the pool. If the pool says up to 126 million the understanding is that they will only file the claims submitted up to the maximum allowed per claim based on the evidence provided by the person making a claim.

  18. Quornelius Griswald says:

    For Type 2 (alternative) proof of purchase (i.e., credit card statements), can one assume that only up to 8 months of valid statements would be sufficient to reach the maximum relief allowed (8 months per year for each of 5 years)? Therefore, any additional statements, apart from Type 1 (itemized) receipts, would be superfluous?

    ADMIN – Hi Quornelious,

    It sure looks that way.

  19. Edna says:

    Do you need the entire bank statement or can it be the downloaded on a spread sheet and can we black out the entries not pertinent.

    ADMIN – Hi Edna,

    Per the instructions you may block the non-pertinent portions

  20. Aubrey Doss says:

    I love these veggie products! This is just an absolute disgrace and fictitious allegation that in anyway the company is wringing consumers,which by the way if you are half stupid you would already know that the product is not harmful in any matter and if you are half smart you would know that anything of such sort is actually beneficial to your immunity system . By the way this company is delicious and I hope they beat the punks that tried to wrong them. So sad. I love Quorn!
