Adams v. America's Test Kitchen, LP, et al.

United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts Case No. 1:22-cv-11309 (AK)

Subscribers of America’s Test Kitchen during the Period of July 13, 2020, through February 14, 2024 Who Requested or Obtained a Video on America’s Test Kitchen’s Website While Being a Facebook Account Holder. 

A court authorized a notice. You are not being sued. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.


A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against American’s Test Kitchen, LP, et al. (collectively “America’s Test Kitchen” or “ATK”). The class action lawsuit alleges ATK disclosed its subscribers’ personally identifiable information (“PII”) to Facebook via the Meta Pixel, without its subscribers’ consent, in violation of the Video Privacy Protection Act (“VPPA”). The VPPA defines PII to include information which identifies a person as having requested or obtained specific video materials or services from a video tape service provider. ATK denies that it violated any law but has agreed to the settlement, set out in the Settlement Agreement, to avoid the uncertainties and expenses associated with continuing the case.


You are included in the Settlement Class if you are an individual residing in the United States who, from July 13, 2020, to and through February 14, 2024, was a Facebook account holder and subscriber to Defendants’ digital services, and who requested or obtained any videos on any America’s Test Kitchen website while being an active Facebook account holder.


The settlement requires ATK to make the business practice changes described below. It does not provide monetary compensation or release any claims for monetary relief.

The settlement resolves the claims in the Action and provides the following injunctive relief to Settlement Class Members:


  • Within 45 days of the Preliminary Approval Order, Defendants (i) will remove all Meta Pixels embedded in any webpage on Defendants’ websites (including accessible in the United States that includes video content and (ii) will not possess PII (as that term is defined in the VPPA) of Settlement Class Members generated by Meta Pixels. 
  • Defendants shall not resume operation of the Meta Pixel on any webpage of their websites accessible in the United States that includes video content.
  • Notwithstanding the above, Defendants may seek relief from this injunction upon amendment or repeal of the VPPA or upon implementation of a VPPA-compliant consumer consent form.
  • Plaintiff may seek from the Court an injunction to enforce the terms of the Settlement Agreement.
  • The settlement does not include any monetary compensation to Settlement Class Members.


You are not required to take any action. This notice further explains the litigation, the settlement, and how you may object to any portion of the settlement, including Class Counsel’s request for attorneys’ fees and expenses and/or the request for a Service Award for the Class Representative.
