$3M Haier Freezer Class Action Settlement Proposed

This is a settlement for the lawsuit.

San Francisco, CA: A $3 million settlement has been agreed by defendant Haier America Trading LLC, in the consumer fraud class action lawsuit alleging the company sold freezers that do not meet national energy consumption standards.

Filed in 2011, the lawsuit, entitled Christopher Collins, et al. v. Haier America Trading LLC, et al, alleges Haier freezers use nearly double the amount of energy as that stipulated by the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act. Further, the lawsuit claims Haier intentionally mislabelled freezers as energy compliant, meeting the federal standards.

Under the terms of the settlement, Haier, which does not admit any wrongdoing in agreeing to the settlement, would pay $3 million to resolve the claims and end the litigation. Depending on the number of eligible claims filed, consumers who bought a Haier HNCM070E freezer could receive reimbursement of between $50 and $325 for each freezer purchased. The settlement has yet to be approved, and details on filing a claim have not yet been made public.
