What's the Wipe Out!® Wipes Class Action About?
A $2 Million Class Action Settlement has been agreed upon over certain Wipe Out!® products, such as wipes, and "decontaminant" or "disinfectant" sprays. Class action claimants can get paid an estimated $6 to $15 per valid claim for those that qualify. Read on below to see what the requirements are for receiving a class action payout.
The Wipe Out!® class action lawsuit alleged that the defendant in the case (Tzumi Innovations) created false advertising via their product labeling, packaging and marketing, which led consumers to inaccurately believe that their spray and wipes products were safe and legal to use as disinfectants for surfaces. The class action lawsuit alleges that these false marketing practices were in direct violation of both state and federal law.
According to the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York (U.S. Department of Justice), as well as the administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (the EPA), Wipe Out!® products were sold illegally to millions of consumers in the United States under the false impression that they were to be used as sanitary disinfectants for surfaces, when in fact the EPA had not found Wipe Out!® wipes and sprays to be safe or effective for consumers. According to these federal law enforcement bureaus, the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (“FIFRA”) was violated when Wipe Out! products were sold on the consumer market, on stores such as Lowes.com and Amazon.com.
