General Mills gives up fight to thwart consumer suits

|By:, SA News Editor

General Mills (GIS) decides to give up its fight to strip consumers of some of their rights to sue the company.

The company tried to slip in a change to its legal terms which would have forced consumers to give up their right to sue the company over a dispute to enter arbitration or a round of negotiations.

After seeing a considerable amount of backlash over the harsh terms, General Mills released an apology for having started down the path of narrowing the legal options of consumers.
