Blue Buffalo Reaches $32M Settlement


This is a settlement for the lawsuit.

Santa Clara, CA: A $32 million settlement has been reached in the consumer fraud class action litigation pending against Blue Buffalo Pet Products, Inc and its subsidiary Blue Buffalo Company, Ltd. The lawsuit alleges, among other things, that certain Blue Buffalo products were not consistent with the "True Blue Promise."The class action lawsuits brought on behalf of consumers and consolidated in the Multi-District Litigation pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri.

Under the terms of the agreement, Blue Buffalo will pay $32 million into a settlement fund to settle the claims of the plaintiff class. Any attorneys' fees awarded by the court and all costs of notice and claims administration will be paid from the settlement fund. The amount that each class member who submits a claim for reimbursement will receive will depend on the total amount of Blue Buffalo products purchased by the claimant during the class period and certain other conditions.

Blue Buffalo denies any wrongdoing, and has agreed to this settlement to eliminate the uncertainties, burden and expense of further litigation.

The settlement agreement is subject to preliminary and final approval by the court.

I purchased blue BUFFALO for [2] years for my cat but did not keep receipts. When are settlements being paid?

I spent over $ 9,000 a year on Blue Buffalo that's over $ 60,000 in the settlement timeframe. The settlement is only allowing me to receive $ 200 only because by luck I had packed my receipts for tax purposes and didn't toss them out.
The settlements are being held because there are about 5 cases that appealed. The site states that no class member shall be paid until all appeals are settled.

I bought Blue Buffalo for my dog from the age of 11 months until he was two and a half. I don't have receipts for all the treats and food I puchased. How do I apply for compensation?
