General Mills alters right to sue
April 22 , 2014
You won't have to lose any rights if you "like" Wheaties on social media. Reports suggest that social media outcry resulted in General Mills scrapping the controversial policy, according to which consumers who engaged with the company online, lost their right to sue.
The rule would have applied to those who downloaded coupons or subscribed to publications. "At no time was anyone ever precluded from suing us by purchasing one of our products at a store or liking one of our Facebook ages," the company said. It apologized for causing worries but made it cleat that such terms are commonly stated in consumer contracts.
