Preliminary $8 Million Settlement Reached in Clorox Class Action

This is a settlement for the Consumer and Financial Fraud lawsuit.

Washington, DC: A preliminary settlement has been reached in the class action against Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner (CATBC).

If approved in court, the settlement would provide compensation for anyone who "purchased, used, or suffered any property damage from use of CATBC" during the class action period of December 13 2002 and September 15, 2010.

The settlement agreement stipulates the Clorox would create a fund of up to $8 million to compensate class members for damages incurred.

The lawsuit was originally filed in 2006 and alleged that CATBC corrodes the rubber and plastic parts of a toilet, despite the product's explicit promise that it "does not harm plumbing." The plaintiffs alleged that CATBC caused toilet parts to deteriorate to the point that the flush mechanism failed entirely. Further, the defect resulted in "water leaking from the toilet tank and [forced] consumers to replace [various] components long before they would otherwise need replacing."

A final hearing to approve the settlement is scheduled for December 29, 2010.
