(MEREDITH/ Tucson News Now) – Residents of 15 states who bought milk in the past 14 years are eligible to get a little money back.
The lawsuit accused milk producers of price-fixing. Instead of taking the case to court, the producers settled the case for $52 million.
To be part of the settlement, you have to live in one of the 15 states and have bought a milk product (milk, half and half, cream cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, yogurt or cream) at a grocery store or other retailer.
How much money you get back depends on how many people enter the pool to receive benefits. Estimates suggest individuals will receive between $45-70.
The 15 states include: Arizona, California, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia
