Tom’s of Maine Inc. has agreed to settle a false advertisement class action lawsuit, resolving claims that the company mislabeled certain beauty and personal care products as natural when they allegedly contained chemical products. If you bought one of the Tom’s of Maine products covered in this false advertisement class action settlement, you may be entitled to compensation.
Covered Products in this Tom’s of Maine class action settlement include:
- Lip Balm or Gloss
- Body Lotion
- Hand Cream
- Other personal or oral care products
Plaintiff Allison Gay and other individuals filed this Tom’s of Maine false ad class action lawsuit in March of this year, alleging the company purposefully mislabeled their personal hygiene and beauty products listed above as “natural” when they allegedly contained unnatural substances.
For example, the false ad class action lawsuit states that Tom’s of Maine brand name natural toothpaste contains both glycerin and sodium lauryl sulfate.
Tom’s of Maine has denied all wrongdoing and liability in this false ad class action lawsuit, but has agreed to settle in order to avoid the uncertainty of continued litigation and mounting court costs.
In addition to paying $4.5 million to establish a settlement fund for Class Members, the Tom’s of Maine false ad class action settlement requires the company to change their labeling and marketing practices for the Covered Products, as well as make certain changes to the company’s website.
