What's This Settlement About?
A $2,000,000 Million Class Action Settlement has been reached with a baby formula manufacturer, PBM Nutritional, LLC. They make the following brands: Well Beginnings, Meijer Baby, Little Journey, Wesley Farms, Burt's Bees Baby, Berkley Jensen, Parent's Choice, Earth's Best Organic, Comforts, Up & Up, Babies “R” Us, Member's Mark, and Bobbie Baby brand Products. These products are sold and marketed it popular big box stores like Walgreen's, Walmart, and Target.
The class action lawsuit alleged that PBM Nutritional, LLC, the baby formula maker, marketed their bottles of formula as containing specific numbers of liquid ounces when following instructions to prepare and use the baby formula. However, the class action lawsuit claims that the baby formula did not produce anywhere near enough powdered baby formula and infant formula to produce the marketed and labeled amounts on the product's containers.
PBM Nutritionals denies the allegations in the class action suit, and says that its labelling and marketing is truthful but has settled this case to avoid further litigation and distraction of resources from its core business. They have agreed to pay $2,000,000 to settle the class action lawsuit out of court.
