According to TopClassActions.com, the lawsuit claimed Walmart allowed customers to buy certain weighted groceries for more than the lowest in-store advertised price.

The plaintiff alleged Walmart’s point-of-sale machines would artificially raise the weight of the weighted goods when marked at a discounted “Rollback” price, causing the total price to be more than the advertised discount.

The settlement class is made up of anyone who purchased weighted goods and bagged citrus in person at a Walmart store between Oct.19, 2018, and Jan. 19, 2024.

“Weighted goods” refers to variable-weight meat, poultry, pork and seafood products labeled with a price-embedded bar code and designated by Walmart as part of its Department 93 products, while “bagged citrus” refers to organic oranges, grapefruit, tangerines and navel oranges sold in bulk in mesh or plastic bags.

Walmart also allegedly advertised and promoted bagged produce weights that exceeded the actual weight of the product, meaning customers paid more per ounce.

Sold-by-weight products on clearance with a reduced-price sticker also had a discrepancy between the advertised per-pound price and the final customer-paid price.

Affected customers can receive a cash payment from the Walmart weighted groceries settlement.

Approved claimants who do not have a receipt or proof of purchase can attest to purchasing a certain amount of weighted goods or produce for a set amount of money.

Claimants who attest to buying 1-50 products will receive $10; claimants who purchased 51 to 75 products will receive $15; those who purchased 76 up to 100 products will receive $20; and claimants who attest to purchasing 101 or more products will receive $25.

Approved claimants with receipts or proof of purchase are entitled to receive 2% of the total cost of the substantiated weighted goods and bagged citrus products purchased, up to a cap of $500.
