Walmart Settles In $45 Million Class Action Suit For Mislabeling Weighted Goods

Walmart has settled a $45 million class action suit against the company for an alleged “deceptive pricing scheme”. The nationwide retailer faces accusations of mislabeling weights and failing to properly discount clearance items. The lawsuit states that Walmart customers paid a higher price for weighted items such as bagged citrus fruits, meat, poultry, pork and seafood than what was advertised on product labels.

Customers who bought any weighted goods or bagged citrus between Oct. 19, 2018 and Jan. 19, 2024 may be eligible to receive up to $500 if they have a receipt. If the class member does not have receipts, they may recover up to $25. All claims must be submitted by June 5th, 2024. Walmart denies all allegations.
