Kotex Tampons Settlement
The lawsuit claims that products manufactured and sold by Kimberly-Clark are valueless because of an alleged defect that causes them to unravel and/or come apart. The defect has caused infections and other symptoms and even caused customers to seek medical care.
The Court has not decided in favor of the Plaintiff or the Defendant. Instead, both sides have agreed to the proposed Settlement. By agreeing to the proposed Settlement, they avoid the costs and uncertainty of a trial.
he Class includes all persons in the United States and United States Territories who bought at retail one or more of the Subject Products during the period March 8, 2013 through November 19, 2019.
