Consumers who purchased Charmin Freshmates Flushable Wipes in the past seven years, could get cash from a class action settlement.
Several consumers lodged class action lawsuits against Procter & Gamble alleging their wet wipe type toilet product, Charmin Freshmates, caused clogs and other plumbing problems.
The plaintiffs contended that the product was falsely advertised as being “flushable” and “septic safe,” but led to major toilet issues and, for some, expensive plumbing bills.
Under the terms of the Charmin flushable wipes class action settlement, those who purchased Charmin Freshmates Flushable Wipes between April 6, 2011 and Nov. 26, 2018 can file a claim.
Class Members who can submit proof of purchase can receive a payout of up to $30. Those without proof of purchase can claim up to seven purchases. Class Members will receive a payout of $.60 per package.
Class Members include consumers nationwide, except for those in New York.
