If you ‘like’ Cheerios or Haagen-Dazs, you might void your right to sue

General Mills’ new policy: if you engage with us online, you can never sue the company. The Consumerist reports:

In new language recently added to General Mills’ website, consumers who interact with the company online will be agreeing to give up the right to sue the company in the future.

The New York Times reports that the food company behind brands like Cheerios, Betty Crocker and Nature Valley recently updated the legal terms in its privacy policy online, effectively limiting customers who bring a dispute against General Mills to arbitration or other negotiation.

Basically, if you download coupons, enter a General Mills sweepstakes or interact with it at all, you can’t sue –not if you get a chunk of glass in your bowl of Wheaties and not if you think a product has misleading labeling. –Read the full Consumerist report.
