OP: Sept 26/12
This is news to us but a fascinating story nonetheless! A woman in Montreal has filed a class action lawsuit against Danone Inc because of supposed false claims that Danone Activia Yogurt and DanActive Probiotic Yogurt Drink are able to aid in digestion.
Although Danone maintains that they have done nothing wrong they have agreed to settle with a $1.7million agreement. All that’s left is the approval of the Quebec Superior Court on November 6th. If this claim goes through it means any one who has purchased Danone Activia or Danactive between April 1, 2009 and November 6, 2012 are entitled to a part of the claim!
According to this article if you declare that you purchased either of these product will be eligible for for $15 in compensation. However, if you are actually able to prove your purchase (s) with a receipt than you could claim between $15 and $50 depending on the amount purchased.
This is something we will definitely be watching for in November!
