(MEREDITH/ Tucson News Now) – Residents of 15 states who bought milk in the past 14 years are eligible to get a little money back.

15 states (Arizona, California, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia) are involved in a class action lawsuit against milk producers.

The lawsuit accused milk producers of price-fixing. Instead of taking the case to court, the producers settled the case for $52 million.

To be part of the settlement, you have to live in one of the 15 states and have bought a milk product (milk, half and half, cream cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, yogurt or cream) at a grocery store or other retailer.

How much money you get back depends on how many people enter the pool to receive benefits. Estimates suggest individuals will receive between $45-70.

You must fill out this form before Jan. 31 in order to be eligible for the money.
