A settlement has been reached between Nestle USA, Inc., Ferrara Candy Co., and Ferrero U.S.A. Inc. (“Defendants”) and Jade Thomas and Carey Hoffman, Regan Iglesia, Larry Fertel, Nosson Chaim Rosenberg, Suzanne Tatkow, Jaime Maxwell, Lauren Debeliso, Meredith Barter, and Patrick Ferguson (“Class Representatives” or “Plaintiffs”), individually and on behalf of the Settlement Class. The settlement resolves class action lawsuits alleging Defendants package its boxed candy products in oversized packaging with nonfunctional empty space. Defendants deny the allegations.
