If you’ve purchased Post-Muesli in the past nine years, you may be eligible for personal compensation.

As a result of a court ruling on a class action lawsuit against Post Foods, LLC, the grain giant may be forced to repay millions in compensation directly to consumers. The case arises from the argument that the language used on the cereal boxes and in marketing materials suggests that the content was healthier than it actually was.

  • Honey and oatmeal muesli

  • honeycomb
  • Wheat meal
