Nutella settlement is sweet for plaintiffs’ attorneys

Class counsel seeks $4 million in fees and expenses, citing changes to Nutella advertising claims

Nutella may not be good for your waistline—but it’s very good for lawyers’ bank accounts.

Earlier this year, Nutella maker Ferrero agreed to pay $3.05 million to settle a class action lawsuit over its allegedly deceptive marketing of the hazelnut spread. Of that money, $2.5 million will go to consumers who purchased Nutella over the four-year class period, each of whom can claim up to $20 in refunds.
