Important Update: The Court held the Fairness Hearing on Wednesday, July 10, 2019, and approved the Settlement two days later.  Copies of the Court’s final orders are located here.

What is the Settlement about?

On February 4, 2019, the Court approved the proposed settlement in a class action lawsuit about the labeling of Aveeno® Baby Wash and Shampoo and Aveeno® Baby Calming Comfort Bath (collectively, the “Products”). The Plaintiff in the lawsuit asserts that the Products’ labels were false or misleading before they were changed (in November of 2012 for the Wash and Shampoo Product, and in November of 2013 for the Calming Comfort Bath Product), by claiming that the Products were a “Natural Oat Formula.” Defendant Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. (“J&JCC” or “Defendant”) denies all allegations and is entering into this settlement, among other reasons, to avoid burdensome and costly litigation. The settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing.

A detailed description of the allegations against the Defendant is provided in the Class Notice, which is available for download on the Important Documents page.

What does the Settlement provide?

Defendant has agreed to create a settlement fund of $2,400,000 to pay Class Members’ claims, attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses and certain administrative costs. You may obtain a cash payment from the fund if you purchased one of the Products in the jurisdictions and during the time period specified above. The amount of your payment will depend on the statements in your Claim Form and the support you may provide, as well as on the total volume of valid claims received.

Additional information on the benefits provided by the Settlement and how the settlement fund will be allocated are provided in the Class Notice, which is available for download on the Important Documents page.
