What’s Really in General Mills’ Bag of Trix?

Synergy Settlement Services proudly supports the AAJ and the protection of the civil justice system. As the AAJ recently told its membership in a “Take Justice Back” e-blast, General Mills, the owner of product staples including Trix, Cheerios, Betty Crocker, and Pillsbury, has quietly updated its terms of service to include a forced arbitration clause that eliminates its customers’ rights.

Forced arbitration clauses allow corporations like General Mills to deprive customers of their day in court in a process that funnels them into an un-American dispute mill without any ability to appeal.

You can help by taking action now. Write to Congress to urge them to protect their constituents from the unfair and abusive practice of forced arbitration.

Thank you for taking the time to take a stand!

"I don't think I've directly said "thank you" for helping us with Bridgett’s case. We sent the reduced payment to Medicaid and called Bridgett's mom to tell her approximately how much money was going to be left for Bridgett and she broke down over the telephone. Given only $25k of insurance and a $850k medical bill from the hospital she didn't think Bridgett would ever see a penny."
