The United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas authorized this Notice. You are not being sued. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.
If you purchased recalled lots of Cottonelle Flushable Wipes between February 7, 2020 and December 31, 2020 in the United States or United States territories, for personal use and not for resale, you may be eligible for a cash payment from a Class Action Settlement.
A federal judge has given preliminary approval to a Class Action Settlement. Kimberly-Clark Corporation (“Kimberly-Clark” or “Defendant”) has agreed to pay up to $13.5 million to pay claims arising out of the sale of recalled lots of Cottonelle Flushable Wipes between February 7, 2020 and December 31, 2020 (“Cottonelle Flushable Wipes”).
You are included in the Class Action Settlement if you purchased recalled lots of Cottonelle Flushable Wipes for personal use between February 7, 2020 and December 31, 2020 in the U.S. or U.S. territories.
The proposed Class Action Settlement reimburses Settlement Class Members for money spent on Cottonelle Flushable Wipes between February 7, 2020 and December 31, 2020. This Class Action Settlement does not include personal injury claims and does not release those claims.
If you previously received a refund from Kimberly-Clark, you may not be eligible for payment under this Class Action Settlement.
Settlement Class Members must submit a Claim Form to be eligible for payment. Settlement Class Members that submit a valid Claim Form by January 16, 2024 are eligible to receive either:
A payment of up to 100% of the amount spent on eligible Cottonelle Flushable Wipes (if you provide proof of purchase); or
A payment of up to $5.00 per household (if you do not provide proof of purchase).
If the amount payable for valid Claims under this Class Action Settlement exceeds $13.5 million, payments for Settlement Class Members will be reduced pro rata so that the total of all payments for valid Claims does not exceed $13.5 million. $4 million was already paid under a separate refund process administered by Kimberly-Clark.
The Court still has to decide whether to approve the Class Action Settlement. No payments will be made until after the Court grants final approval of the Class Action Settlement and all appeals, if any, are resolved.
