Consumers in 15 states and the District of Columbia could be eligible to get a refund for milk and milk products they have bought in the last 14 years.

Milk producers in states like California, Michigan, and Wisconsin have been accused of price fixing, and have decided to settle the class-action lawsuit filed against them for $52 million, according to ABC News.

The settlement would award anyone who has bought milk or other dairy products in any of the states named in the suit, depending on how many people who make a claim for the milk refund.

According to USA Today, the dairy industries of the states listed may have slaughtered up to 500,000 cows in order to keep milk production lower and prices of milk and dairy products higher.

Consumers who bought milk or any other milk products since 2003 while living in Arizona, Kansas, Massachussetts, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, West Virginia, or the other states listed above, may be eligible for the refund, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Products purchased for resale are not eligible, however.

Proof of purchase is not required to submit a claim, but a sworn statement is, the Detroit Free Press reported. The claim form can be filled out at BoughtMilk.com. The deadline to enter a claim is Jan. 31, 2017, and the value of payouts will be updated to reflect the number of claims submitted.
