United States District Court Northern District of California San Francisco Division

Case No. 3:15-cv-2150 RS

If You Are A Purchaser Of Charmin Freshmates Flushable Wipes Before Between April 6, 2011 And November 26, 2018 You May Be Eligible To Receive Benefits From This Settlement

Please Review the Content of this Website Carefully.  

  • This class action Settlement will resolve two lawsuits against The Procter & Gamble Company (“P&G”) involving Charmin Freshmates Flushable Wipes.  The lawsuits contend that these wipes were inappropriately marketed as “flushable,” “septic safe,” and “safe for sewer and septic systems.”  The lawsuits seek a court order to stop the practices and  refund  customers a portion of the purchase price.  P&G denies these allegations and maintains that the wipes perform as advertised.
  • In connection with this Settlement, P&G agreed to make changes to the labeling of the wipes.  In addition, P&G will provide Class Members a partial cash refund of sixty cents ($0.60) per package purchased, up to $30 per Household with Proof of Purchase, or $4.20 per Household without Proof of Purchase.
  • The lawyers who brought the lawsuits will ask the Court for up to $2,150,000 to be paid to them by P&G as fees and expenses for investigating the facts, litigating the cases, and negotiating the Settlement.  They will additionally ask for $5,000 for one of the Plaintiffs who initially brought these lawsuits, $3,000 for the other three Plaintiffs who initially brought these lawsuits, and $1,000 for the thirteen other Plaintiffs who joined in 2018.  These will be requested as Class Representative Payments, to compensate the Plaintiffs for taking on the risks of pursing this litigation and for agreeing to a broader release of claims than other Settlement Class Members.
  • Your legal rights are affected whether you act, or don’t act.  Read this website carefully.
  • This website summarizes the proposed Settlement.  For the precise terms and conditions of the Settlement, please see the Settlement Agreement available on this website or contact Class Counsel at Gutride Safier LLP, 100 Pine Street, Suite 1250, San Francisco, CA 94111.
