Recalled Baby Wipes Settlement
Processed by Dahl Administration
If you purchased, acquired or were exposed to baby wipes manufactured by Nutek Disposables, Inc. and sold under various brand names between October 25, 2013 and October 25, 2014, you could get a payment from a class action settlement.
The Settlement will provide a total of $650,000 in additional funds to fully settle and release claims of all persons who purchased or acquired (or are the caretaker, parent or guardian of a minor child who purchased or acquired) or were exposed to certain Recalled Baby Wipes sold between October 25, 2013 and October 25, 2014 in the United States, (the fifty states of the United States, the District of Columbia, and all United States territories and possessions, including the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico), excluding any person who excludes themselves from the Settlement.
The Settlement resolves a class action lawsuit brought against Nutek Disposables, Inc., First Quality Enterprises, Inc., First Quality Consumer Products, LLC, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., Family Dollar Stores, Inc., Walgreen Co. dba Walgreens, Fred’s, Inc., and Fred’s of Tennessee, Inc., (together “Defendants”). The lawsuit alleges that Defendants sold, manufactured, distributed, or marketed certain Baby Wipes products that may have been contaminated with the bacteria, Burkholderia cepacia, which allegedly caused certain users to suffer skin infections or irritation, bacterial genitourinary tract infections, or other symptoms. Defendants vigorously deny these allegations, deny wrongdoing of any kind, and believe the lawsuit is without merit. However, to avoid the cost of litigation, and potential risks for both sides, the plaintiffs and Nutek have reached a Stipulation of Class Action Settlement, which was preliminarily approved by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York on June 15, 2017.
