      I used them and didn’t realize they were the reason I had to call a plumber after my toliet backed up until they were attached to the plumber’s line coming back out of pipes😣

  2. Gay Radulski says:

    I live on a septic and was told these were flushable.

    ADMIN – Hi Gay,

    Flushable and septic-safe are two very different things.

    That is the very issue that triggered the lawsuit.

  5. David Rogers says:

    My toilet had to be repaired and replaced after use!

    I don’t think these wipes damaged toilets. Clogs happened in pipes but no toilet replacements were ever needed.

  6. Jean Rochester says:

    They caused far more septic damage then 27.00.

    ADMIN – Hi Jean,

    Flushable is not the same as septic-safe.

    Regardless of what the labels read I would advice that you refrain from discarding anything in your sewage system.

  72. Jody Gleason says:

  73. Torrin Perry says:

    I had to call the plumber to unclog the toilet and he found these wipes in the toilet pipes super fluffed up and he said here’s your clog reason ! I didn’t save my store receipt but did my plumber receipt with his phone number for proof so will they pay me back my plumbers cost and the wipes price ?

    ADMIN – Hi Torrin,

    This settlement is not designed to pay for damages. It is designed to reimburse you for the cost of wipes. You are on your own for damages.

  74. Julie H. says:

    Wow people, let’s not loose our heads here. #1 Whoever this Admin is has the patience of a Saint because how many times are you all going to repeat the same obvious statements?? #2 They stopped selling them YEARS ago. Not weeks or months, no they are not still on the market so stop saying things like “I’ve purchased these wipes for years” because its not possible since they were taken off the market years ago. Perhaps you USED to purchase the wipes included in this class action or maybe you never did & you’ve got them confused with the Up & Up Target brand which aren’t any part of this suit. I could go on & on but c’mon people, fill out the form yourself & submit it. These lawyers don’t work for you, you didn’t sign papers & pay a retainer to them to be barking orders for them to fill out your forms like so many of you are. How about a thank you for letting us know about this class action before the deadline passed. I didn’t see one of those. Just complaints about plumbers & fascinating one liners like I bought these & theys doesn’t flush. Don’t any of you own plungers? I think that would have been sufficient to fix the clogging problem. And I promise you NOBODY cares if you bought these so why you’re so compelled to share that en mass is odd to me. Yikes. Get your gift cards & shut down the useless comments for crying out loud.

    ADMIN – Hello Again,

    Did you use the wipes Julie?

  75. Josephine says:

    Where is the form

    ADMIN – Hi Josephine,

    On the link that reads “click here to file”

  76. Linda Richards says:

    ADMIN – Hi Linda,

    That is not the way that settlements work. You must file your own claim before the deadline.

  77. Caneeshia says:

    Yes they stopped my bathroom up

  78. Taylor Weber says:

    I did not receive an email or postcard, but I am a class member since i purchased 17 units of these wipes. Requesting more information please. The claim website will not let me submit a form without a unique ID. Please provide me with one, please. Thank you.

    ADMIN – Hi Taylor,

    You should be able to file without an ID. I cannot provide you with one as I am not the class action administrator.

  79. Tkatch says:

  80. glenn tkatch says:
