Alexia potato class action settlementIf you purchased certain Alexia frozen potato products between December 6, 2007 and July 10, 2013, you can claim up to $35 cash or up to $75 in food product vouchers from the class action lawsuit settlement.

A federal judge preliminarily approved the Alexia class action settlement in July, resolving allegations that Alexia Food Inc. falsely labeled its potato products as “natural” when they contained an artificial chemical called disodium dihydrogen pyrophosphate to prevent discoloration.

Alexia denies any wrongdoing but has agreed to establish a $3.2 million class action lawsuit settlement fund to resolve the litigation. Parent company ConAgra Inc. has also agreed to use citric acid or other naturally-sourced compounds in Alexia potatoes to prevent them from turning brown.

Class Members of the Alexia settlement include anyone who purchased the following Alexia frozen potato products in the United States during the Class Period:

  •     Sauté Reds
  •     Mashed Potatoes Yukon Gold Potatoes & Sea Salt
  •     Mashed Potatoes Red Potatoes with Garlic & Parmesan
  •     Waffle Fries
  •     Harvest Sauté
  •     Italian Sauté
  •     Sauté Sweets
  •     Potato Bites

Class Members who submit a valid Claim Form by the deadline of November 27, 2013 will be able to choose one of the following class action settlement benefits:

  •     A cash payment of $3.50 for each product purchased (up to 10 products), for a total of $35.
  •     Two $3.75 Alexia product food vouchers for every one Alexia product purchased (up to 10 products), for a total of up to $75.00 in vouchers.
  •     You may also 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.

A Final Fairness Hearing is scheduled for December 11, 2013. Claims will not be paid unless the settlement is approved and all appeals, if any, are resolved.

Claim Forms and more information on your rights in the Alexia Frozen Potato Products Class Action Lawsuit Settlement can be found at www.AlexiaSettlement.com.

The case is In Re Alexia Foods Inc. Litigation, Case No. 4:11-cv-06119-PJH, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

UPDATE: A federal judge granted final approval to the Alexia Potato Products Class Action Settlement at the Final Fairness Hearing.

    It was my understanding that this product was safe and
    healthy for my diet. Very disapointed in this false claim

  • John Odey September 28, 2013

    I found the products to be tasty and bought them regularly. Too bad they claimed all natural but I’m still going to purchase them again. It would be nice to secure an email claim confirmation rather than having to print it out as I have a tendcy to misplace my paper files.

  • Stefani February 11, 2014

    Rust Consulting handled this claim and several other claims. If you have several claims with them, you WILL NOT receive payment for all of them. Probably just one. If Rust Consulting sees you have multiple claims with them, you will be flagged.

  • robert February 11, 2014

    It is not the product companies that are dragging this on it is the Distribution Administrator firms that have to make sure each and every claim is correct, while they get the bulk of the money right away and they rest of the plaintiff consumers have to wait for the left over crumbs!!!!

    This is how it goes:
    1. Court Fees
    2. Attorney Fees
    3. Charitable Funds if applicable
    4. Main Plaintiffs
    5. Distribution Fund Administrator fees to cover services and postal fees
    6.The rest of the plaintiffs

  • Big D February 11, 2014

  • ANGEL February 15, 2014


  • ton February 18, 2014

    hey lisa and angel, I’m quite pissed off also, mainly at the administrators Rust and Garden City Group. Who are they to mass deny every claim a whole group puts in since they don’t like that they made claimes before. It would be fun to get hundreds of rejected claimers to mass claim with them. 200 pissed off claimers 1 claim per day 100 days. An extra 20000 claims times 5 claims they are working on. What do u think. Harass

  • Pauline March 4, 2014

    hi all!nothing in MO yet>did anybody hear anything?

  • mike March 18, 2014

    nothing yet in mo. hello rust whats going on update your people

  • Melissa April 1, 2014

    let’s start a class action against RUST

    • sweet April 2, 2014


      • ton April 3, 2014

        The total award is $2,500,000 cash and $700,000 vouchers. The lawyers will probably get 1/3 of the $3.2 million or $1,070,000 plus they are asking for up to $800000 expenses. Rust probably gets $100000 and the main defendants get $5000 each. This will leave $600000 cash and $700000 vouchers. Do you think the lawyers want to be paid in vouchers. So the class of defendants get 40% of the settlement and 55% of that is potatoes. I think the lawyers try to settle quickly for a quick payday with no concern for the mass of defrauded consumers. Just my humble opinion.

        • carol April 8, 2014

          hey TON why don’t you shut up? you post on every claim and act like you know what’s going on. nobody asked you pal.

          • ton April 8, 2014

            Hey Carol, get a life. I’m about the 10th person that you have said shut up to. You contribute no information and you bitch constantly. When did you get the power to say who could or couldn’t post. The people you said shut up to I want to read their comments.

  • stephanie April 13, 2014

  • Melissa April 14, 2014

  • cindy April 15, 2014
