If you purchased certain Black & Decker or Farberware brand small kitchen appliances between February 5, 2014 and October 19, 2018, you could receive payment from a proposed class action settlement.
You are receiving this notice because records show that you purchased a Black & Decker or Farberware brand small kitchen appliance and are potentially eligible for a settlement payment under the terms of a proposed class action settlement.
A court authorized this notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.
A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit pending in the Dane County Circuit Court in Wisconsin. This lawsuit is about the branding, identification of the manufacturer, identification of the warrantor, and the "cup" capacity of certain small kitchen appliances. The covered products include Black & Decker brand air fryers, blenders, can openers, coffee grinders, coffee makers, electric knives, food processors, grills, irons, juicers, kettles, mixers, quesadilla makers, rice cookers, skillets and other surface cookers, slow cookers, steamers and other container cookers, toasters, toaster ovens, and waffle makers and Farberware brand coffee urns and percolators, food processors, and toaster ovens (the "Covered Products"). The Class Represenstatative alleges that defendants misrepresented that the Covered Products are manufactured and warranted by Black & Decker and Farberware, when in fact they are not. The Class Representative also alleges that defendants represented that certain of the Covered Products produce a certain number of "cups" but that they did not produce 8-fluid ounces per "cup." Defendants deny these allegations. The Court did not rule in favor of plaintiff or defendants. Instead, the parties agreed to the proposed settlement in order to avoid the time and expense of litigation.
WHAT DOES THE SETTLEMENT PROVIDE? If approved, the proposed settlement will offer partial refunds to settlement class members of up to $4 (one per household/physical address), depending on the number of approved claims. The settlement will also provide for notice/administration costs, class representative payment, non-monetary benefits, and fees and costs for the lawyers who represented the settlement class.

On March 22, 2019, at 2:00 p.m., the Court will hold a hearing in this case (Liptai, et al. v. Spectrum Brands Holdings, LLC, Case No. 2018CV000321) to determine: (1) whether the proposed settlement is fair, reasonable and adequate and should receive final approval; and (2) whether the application for Plaintiffs' attorneys' fees of $550,000, expenses of $10,000, and class representative incentive payment of $2,500 should be granted. You may ask to appear at the hearing, but you do not have to. For more information, visit www.LiptaiClassSettlement.com

You may ask to appear at the hearing or you may hire your own lawyer to appear in Court for you if you wish; however, if you do, you will be responsible for paying that lawyer to appear on your behalf.
