Walmart shoppers can get up to $500 because of the American retailer's $45 million settlement in a class-action lawsuit. If you usually shop at Walmart stores, here's how to know if you're eligible.

According to Yahoo News' latest report, Walmart shoppers who purchased variable-weight pork, seafood, poultry, and meat products with price-embedded bar codes are eligible for the settlement.

However, the products they purchased should be designated by Walmart as part of its Department 93 items. If you bought bagged tangerines, navel oranges, grapefruits, and organic oranges, you could also be eligible.

However, these items should be in mesh or plastic bags and must have been purchased between October 19, 2018, and January 19, 2024. Although some Walmart shoppers were unaware that they're listed as claimants, they can still file a claim online.

Those interested have until June 5 to file a claim and get their part of the settlement lawsuit. Specifically, eligible Walmart shoppers are entitled to 2% of the $45 million settlement.

About Class-Action Lawsuit Against Walmart

USA Today reported that the class-action lawsuit alleges Walmart of falsely inflating product weight, overcharging for clearance items, and mislabeling the weight of bagged produce.

But, since Walmart agreed to the $45 million settlement, the legal action never went to trial. The American retailer also didn't admit any guilt to the allegations.
