    i bought many packs of diapers and waips over the past few years

    ADMIN – Hi Angel

    Not sure about the “waips” but as far as the diapers are concerned you can consider yourself a class member.

  5. Brianna Jazenski says:

    Can you advice on what would be the best action. My daughter spent weeks in the hospital due to this. We have hospital records, and hundreds of pics of the blisters she had for the detergent. They denied their during that period. I am not willing to settle on the value of just our detergent.

    ADMIN – Hi Brianna,

    I cannot provide you with legal advice. Generally those that believe that a settlement is not fair have the option to exclude themselves and go after someone through a private litigation. If you want to exclude yourself you must do it before Nov 15

  6. Char says:

    This is odd I have been natural for the past 10 years so when I found these products I changed most of all my household items as well as my personal items to these products. Now I’m reading these products really are not natural. I think I’m not the only one who doesn’t save receipts especially for household products. Can I still file?

    ADMIN – Hi Char,

    You can file but you won’t get as much money.
