Class Action Lawsuit Settlement Case(s): Steven Brody, et al. v. Merck & Co., Inc., et al., Case No. 12-cv-4774-PGS-DEA, U.S. District Court, District of New Jersey,.
Address to submit a claim form (REQUIRED):
P.O. Box 35018
Seattle, WA 98124-1018
Details:If you purchased Coppertone sunscreen between 2006 and 2012, you may be eligible to receive a cash payment from the class action settlement.
The Coppertone sunscreen settlement will resolve a 2003 class action lawsuit, entitled Brody v. Merck & Co., that alleges Merck (formerly Schering-Plough) exaggerated the benefits of its sunscreen products – specifically by using the terms “sunblock,” “waterproof,” “all day” and “all day protection.”
Merck denies any wrongdoing and maintains its sunscreen lotions and sprays meet the latest broad-spectrum sun protection standards from the FDA, but has agreed to establish a class action lawsuit settlement fund of between $3 million and $10 million to pay out consumers and resolve the litigation. Merck also agreed to discontinue using the above terms in the labeling, advertising, marketing or promotion of these products.
Class Members of the Coppertone sunscreen class action settlement include all U.S. consumers who purchased Eligible Coppertone Sunscreen Products in the United States, including its territories, between July 31, 2006 and October 5, 2012. “Eligible” products include any and all sunscreen products sold under the brand name “Coppertone,” which were labeled and/or advertised to provide protection against the sun’s UVA and/or UVB rays.
The amount of money you can receive from the Coppertone sunscreen settlement will depend on how many people file valid claims, so it cannot be determined at this time. However, the ONLY way to receive money from the settlement is to submit a Claim Form online or postmarked no later than March 4, 2013.
A Final Approval Hearing is set for February 20, 2013.
