Packaged Ice means ice sold in bags as well as ice sold in block

*An indirect purchase is any purchase of Packaged Ice from a reseller or retailer, such as a grocery store, convenience store, gas station, etc. A direct purchase is a purchase directly from a Packaged Ice manufacturer, including from any of the Defendants (or any of their subsidiaries or affiliates). You are not included in either Settlement Class if you only bought Packaged Ice directly from a Defendant (or any of their subsidiaries or affiliates) or another manufacturer of Packaged Ice.
