A new class action lawsuit could see some Minnesota and Wisconsin Walmart shoppers getting up to a $500 settlement from the retail/grocery giant.

The lawsuit was filed in Florida in 2022 and accused Walmart of falsely inflating the price of a variety of "Weighted Goods and/or Bagged Citrus" that were purchased in person at a Walmart store in the United States.

What Did Walmart Do Wrong?

The lawsuit alleges that Walmart mislabeled pre-bagged oranges, tangerines, grapefruit, and other produce, resulting in customers paying for more produce than they received.
