What is this lawsuit about?
ANSWER:
This is a case about ConAgra’s advertising certain of its Alexia frozen potato products. The Plaintiffs claim that ConAgra falsely represented in its advertising that certain Alexia frozen potato products are “natural” or “all natural”, when those product contained the ingredient disodium dihydrogen pyrophosphate to retain the color of the potatoes.
ConAgra denies that it falsely advertised its products and denies it did anything wrong. ConAgra denies that the Plaintiffs and the Class have suffered any damages or that they have been harmed in any way. ConAgra, however, has chosen to provide its customers with a cash payment and/or vouchers for free products rather than spending additional money on costly litigation.
What does the Settlement provide?
ANSWER:
If the Settlement is approved, ConAgra will pay up to $3,200,000, consisting of a Cash Settlement Fund of $2,5000,000 as well as a Voucher Settlement Fund of $700,000. Additionally, ConAgra has agreed to the following “For as long as ConAgra chooses to sell the Alexia products, ConAgra will use citric acid or other naturally-sourced compounds in the Alexia Products, rather than disodium dihydrogen pyrophosphate. If the Food and Drug Administration determines in the future that products containing disodium dihydrogen pyrophosphate can be labeled ‘natural,’ ConAgra reserves the right to use disodium dihydrogen pyrophosphate in the Alexia Products.”
Class Members who submit valid timely Claim Forms have the choice to receive a cash payment, vouchers or a combination of cash payments and vouchers for up to 10 Alexia frozen potato product purchases. The amount of cash or vouchers that you may receive depends on the quantity of Alexia products you purchased.
You are eligible to receive $3.50 cash (in the form of a check) for each product you purchased (up to 10 products), for a total of up to $35.00.
You are eligible to receive two $3.75 Alexia product food vouchers for every one Alexia product you purchased (up to 10 products), for a total of up to $75.00 in vouchers.
You may choose a combination of cash and vouchers for up to a total of 10 products purchased. For example, you may file a claim for five cash payments and five voucher awards.
There is a limit of one claim (for up to 10 product purchases) per household.

Yup thanks for that, we bought it because of what it didn’t have and were willing to pay the extra cost with or with out coupons because we believed in the product. This upsets us….

Thank you, I just asked for the voucher. I only purchased a few with coupons, because of the price. I hope this doesnt get out of hand and people lie and get greedy. I was addicted to the waffle fries lol! I wonder if the entrees will are true .. I buy those on occasion also. Consumers are lied to all the time, and the lies will continue.

We have been buying these products for a few years so that our grand kids were eating healthier when I didn’t have time to cook as I would of normally. This just adds another strike for things , foods we thought we can trust.

On an added note, we will still purchase because the kids do love the waffle fries.
