General Mills Reverses Itself - No Mandatory Arbitration

Reversing a policy that was an abuse of arbitration policy. legally unenforceable and a complete public relations disaster, General Mills has changed its mind, removed its silly mandatory arbitration policy, and has gone back to its original legal terms, without mandatory arbitration.

“Because our concerns and intentions were widely misunderstood, causing concerns among our consumers, we’ve decided to change them back to what they were,” Mike Siemienas, a company spokesman, wrote in the email. “As a result, the recently updated legal terms are being removed from our websites, and we are announcing today that we have reverted back to our prior legal terms, which contain no mention of arbitration.”
