Case Name

Pettit v. Procter & Gamble Co.,
Case No. 3:15-cv-02150,
District Court for the Northern District of California

Case Summary

In one lawsuit (Pettit v. Procter & Gamble Company), the Plaintiff asserts that, although the packaging on the Freshmates wipes states that the wipes are “flushable,” “septic safe,” and “safe for sewer and septic systems,” the wipes are not suitable for disposal by flushing down a toilet, are not regarded as flushable by municipal sewage system operators, do not disperse upon flushing, and routinely damage or clog plumbing pipes, septic systems, and sewage lines and pumps. Plaintiff alleges that P&G is liable for: (a) violations of the California Consumers Legal Remedies Act, Cal. Civil Code §1750 et seq., (b) false advertising in violation of California Business and Professions Code §17500 et seq., (c) fraud, deceit and/or misrepresentation, (d) negligent misrepresentation, and (e) unfair, unlawful and deceptive trade practices in violation of California Business and Professions Code §17200 et seq. In the second lawsuit (Ramcharitar v. Procter & Gamble Company), the Plaintiffs make similar allegations regarding the Freshmates wipe and allege that P&G is liable for: (a) breach of express warranty, (b) negligent design, (c) negligent misrepresentation, (d) failure to warn, (e) violations of the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act, Florida Statutes §501.201 et seq., (f) unjust enrichment, (g) violation of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, 15 U.S.C. §2301 et seq., (h) violation of the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act, §805 Ill. Comp. Stat. §505 (2007), (i) tortious breach of warranty, and (j) fraud. Plaintiffs seek to pursue their claims on behalf of themselves and others who purchased the Product in the United States, except for purchases in New York.

P&G denies that there is any factual or legal basis for Plaintiffs’ allegations. P&G contends that the labeling of the Product was truthful and non-misleading. P&G therefore denies any liability. P&G also denies that Plaintiff or any other members of the Settlement Class have suffered injury or are entitled to monetary or other relief.

    If people can’t figure out how to follow the link to file a claim – then how do they figure out how to make a comment? And, while scrolling down to make said comment, how do they not notice all the previous comments and replies?

  54. Cathy Miller says:

    Obviously this product isn’t a flushable item..

  55. Danielle Escalante says:

    I used them and had issues.

  57. ERAKA SMITH says:

    I used this product and had an allergic reaction

  58. Gerod green says:

    I was a messy situation for myself and family.

  59. D says:

    Hey admin,

    I’ve used your site for quite some time and every time I can’t believe how many people think they’re submitting a claim by making a comment on here. I would be so frustrated. You’re a good dude.

  60. PANDOLYN CUNNINGHAM says:

    CLOGGED TOILETS

  61. Sharon oneil says:

    Yes. I, too, used this product the first 10 or so flushed down easily but after that my toilet started backing up. I had to use a plunger. I called my fix-it plumber guy, and he suggested I stop using flushable wipes. That charge was $75 for him to come unclog my pipes.

  62. eileen patterson says:

    plugged the toilet….spent much money trying to unclog

  63. candace says:

    my toilet clogged after purchasing these

  64. Elvira Cork says:

    Used this product so any times and for a long period of time.

  65. Taiyanna Brown says:

    Have bought and used so many of this product.

  66. faith watts says:

    cost me a lot of money to repair pipes

  67. Meghan L Berry says:

    I filed a claim (I believe) because I had purchased these wipes and flushed them. Can I verify that I have entered, and additionally, we have now had $7000 worth of blocked sewer lines due to wipes clogging the lines. I believe that the wording of denying liability assumes there is no additional restitution, but was curious if there was anything else that could be done.

  73. anthony ambrose says:

    Use this product and I had to call the plumber out to unclog the system.

  74. Dana Reitano says:

    I bought several Charmin Freshmates Flushable Wipes because they were on sale and after using them a little over a month. Had to call a plumber and he came out and had to use a water closet auger to clear the clog that was caused by these flushable wipes. He told me to stop flushing them or better yet, just buy toilet paper.

  75. Sin Ibrahimi says:

    Have had similar issues and had to contact my plumber friends to resolve this.

  76. Melani L croft says:

    I had major problems due to these wipes but I missed the deadline. I had to pay for emergency routing of my pipes and flooded my entire basement

  77. Thomas OConn says:

    We have purchased a lot of these and didn’t have slightest idea there was a class actions lawsuit

  78. Adelita says:

    I bought a lot for my granddaughter. I had a backup in the toilet a few times.

  80. Hayley says:

    We used these wipes. In 2016, our 1st floor bathroom we never use, backed up. Door was shut so we didn’t catch that everytime we flushed our upstairs toilet, everything was coming up through the 1st floor toilet. One day, I came home and our house smelled like sewage. Roto Rooter came and assessed damage. He found about 400 of these wipes through out pipes. It was $1,200 for them to clear everything. Then we had to gut our guest bathroom and part of our 1st floor surrounding the bathroom. So…$30? Why don’t you just burn the money in a fire pit because that is essentially what Charmin caused in damages by saying their wipes were flushable.

  81. Sherry Miles says:

    I bought 2 of these a week for the last 5 years. They are supposed to be flushable but they keep stopping the toilet up.

  82. Jennifer Faust says:

    We definitely had clogging issues.

  83. Chris L says:

    I had to pay over $2500 for multiple plumbers, $ 2100 to fix my plumbing & I still have over $3500 min to finish fixing my bathroom & finished basement where the plumbers flooded the basement by flooding my basement with sewage- not to mention 3 floors of damaged wals

  84. Bill Slotsve says:

    Are they taking late claims? The reason I ask is I am definitely eligible for recompense and sometimes the Corp sets money aside for future claimants who were in fact eligible at the captioned time period then and there and therein to file a claim.
