The deadline to file a claim for the Diamond Walnuts class action lawsuit settlement is only two weeks away.

Diamond Walnuts Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
The Diamond walnut settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit, entitled Elliot Zeisel v. Diamond Foods, Inc., that alleges Diamond Foods misbranded its walnut products by making false and misleading statements about the health benefits of eating walnuts, including that eating them would lead to a healthy heart.
Class Members of the Diamond walnuts class action settlement include consumers who purchased Diamond of California brand walnuts (including, but not limited to, Shelled, Halves, Chopped, Finely Diced, Chips, Nut Toppings, and In-the-Shell Walnuts) in the United States from March 22, 2006 through January 30, 2012. Class Members have until October 26, 2012 to file a claim to receive either $8.25 for every 3-pound bag of walnuts they purchased from Sam’s Club, or $3.25 for any other Diamond of California walnut product purchased. You do not need to submit Proof of Purchase unless you are claiming more than three 3-pound bags of walnuts or more than five bags of any other walnut products.
