General Mills and Yoplait USA Inc. deny the allegations but have agreed to an $8.5 million class action lawsuit settlement to resolve the litigation.

However, if you request refunds for more than 13 units, Proof of Purchase must be provided. A “unit” means a single package of YoPlus, which commonly comes in a package of four yogurt containers.
