What's This Settlement About?
A $19.5 Million Class Action Settlement has been reached with Similac baby formula over allegations of false advertising. Abbott Laboratories, the parent company that produces and markets Similac formula for infants has agreed to the class action settlement as a result of the class action lawsuit, but denies any wrongdoing.
The Similac and Abbott Laboratories class action lawsuit alleged that the labels on certain varieties of the infant formula by Similac could not produce or yield the volume that was marketed as part of the instructions. For instance, if Similac infant formula labels showed that a product could create a certain amount of 4-ounce servings of baby formula, they sometimes could produce less than the amount of servings indicated.
Other similar class actions against baby formula producers over false advertisement have been settled recently. Enfamil settled a class action for $8.4 Million, while PBM Nutritionals settled for $2 Million over quantities labeled in its infant formulas as well.
