Proof of Purchase
Not required, but those who can provide receipts and/or product packaging that can identify the product covered by the class action settlement will receive a higher payout.
Kimberly-Clark Worldwide Inc. was hit with a class-action lawsuit in late 2019 by a consumer who said that U by Kotex tampon products caused infections, irritation, injuries, and other problems. In some cases, alleged the complaint, women had to seek medical attention to have the pieces removed.
According to the complaints, the tampons that unraveled were nearly impossible to remove. Some women even reported that the products unraveled while still in the packaging, before use.
The U by Kotex class-action lawsuit alleged that the recall was insufficient, however. The complaint pointed out that Kimberly-Clark did not advertise a refund or return as a part of the U by Kotex recall effort. Instead, consumers were instructed to call the company’s customer service team and stop using the product, in addition to obtaining medical care for any symptoms.
- If you don’t have a receipt, you can take pictures of the barcode then upload each one of them just like my picture below.
- If you no longer have the products and you don’t have a receipt, you can still file the claim for up to 5 boxes which is $30 worth.
