Premier Protein Shake Lawsuit Settlement

Recommended Posts

There is a pending class action lawsuit against the makers of Premier Protein.  The key claim in the lawsuit is that each shake has 26.9 to 28.34 grams of protein instead of the 30 grams of protein listed on the container.  The matter has been settled and anyone who has bought Premier Protein shakes in the past seven years is entitled to a refund of up to $40 (if you have receipts) or $20 (if you do not have receipts).  Note that if you have receipts you will need to upload a copy of them (e.g., in jpeg or pdf format) as part of the on-line claims procedure.  The deadline for making a claim is December 20, 2018.

Here is some information from this web site:

A Proposed Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit. A purchaser of certain Premier Protein Ready-To-Drink Shake products has sued Premier Nutrition Corporation ("Defendant"), alleging that it made false and misleading statements about the protein content of those products. Defendant denies the Plaintiff’s allegations and any wrongdoing.

• The Proposed Settlement creates a $9 million settlement fund from which to pay Class Member claims and other costs and expenses related to the litigation and settlement as detailed below.

• You are a Class Member if you purchased any of the following Premier Protein Ready-To-Drink Shake products in the United States from August 8, 2011 through October 12, 2018: Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberries & Cream, Banana & Cream, Peaches & Cream, Cookies & Cream, Mixed Berry, Organic Chocolate, Organic Vanilla and Caramel flavors (the "Products").

• If you are eligible to participate in this Proposed Settlement because you purchased one or more of the Products in the United States from August 8, 2011 through October 12, 2018, you can submit a claim for a cash payment from the Settlement Fund. 

To submit a claim, you must complete a Claim Form.

Each class member may submit a claim, either electronically through a settlement website or by mail, for each of the Products purchased during the class period. If you are entitled to relief and have valid proof of purchase, you will be entitled to submit a claim for $1 per purchased shake of Premier Protein Shake Products up to $40.00 in cash, subject to pro rata adjustment. If you are entitled to relief and do not have proof of purchase, you will be entitled to submit a claim for $0.50 per purchased shake of Premier Protein Shake Products up to $20.00 in cash, subject to pro rata adjustment.
