If you purchased a Secret, Old Spice, Pantene, Waterl<ss, Aussie, Herbal Essences, or Hair Food aerosol antiperspirant, deodorant, body spray, dry shampoo, or dry conditioner product from November 4, 2015 to December 31, 2021, you may be entitled to make a claim for a monetary payment or a voucher.

This class action settlement will resolve several lawsuits filed against The Procter & Gamble Company (“P&G”), and consolidated into a multidistrict litigation action (“MDL”), involving the marketing and sale of certain aerosol antiperspirant, deodorant, body spray, dry shampoo, and dry conditioner products, including but not limited to aerosol antiperspirant, deodorant, body spray, dry shampoo, and dry conditioner products from the following brands: Secret, Old Spice, Pantene, Waterl<ss, Aussie, Herbal Essences, and Hair Food (“P&G Aerosol Products”), prior to January 1, 2022.  The lawsuits contend that these products were inappropriately marketed because it was not disclosed that the P&G Aerosol Products allegedly contained benzene.  The lawsuits seek to, among other things, stop such marketing and refund to customers a portion of the purchase price of the P&G Aerosol Products.  P&G denies that it has engaged in any wrongdoing and maintains that its marketing was at all times truthful and accurate.  Nevertheless, out of an abundance of caution, P&G has already recalled all of the products at issue. This Settlement does not concern any product purchased after December 31, 2021.

The Court has not made a determination as to whether the allegations against P&G have merit.  Instead, the Parties have proposed to enter into a class action settlement to resolve the Claims asserted in the Settlement.  In connection with this Settlement, P&G will provide each Settlement Class Member who submits a valid and timely claim with the option to receive either a monetary payment of up to three dollars and fifty cents ($3.50) for each P&G Aerosol Product purchased between November 4, 2015 and December 31, 2021, or vouchers for the same P&G Aerosol Product(s) purchased.  Claims submitted without valid Proof of Purchases are limited to a maximum of three (3) P&G Aerosol Products per Household, and Settlement Class Members have the option to receive up to a maximum of ten dollars and fifty cents ($10.50) or up to three vouchers for the same P&G Aerosol Products(s) purchased. The number of vouchers or monetary payments that you can receive under the Settlement will be reduced by the number of vouchers that you or a member of your Household previously received through P&G’s Recall Programs.  The value of any voucher(s) will correspond to the type of P&G Aerosol Product that you claim you have purchased.  The value of each voucher is: $5 for Old Spice Hair; $6 for Aussie; $7 for Old Spice, Secret, or Herbal Essences; $9 for Pantene or Waterl<ss; and $10 for Hair Food.  In addition, P&G has agreed to undertake certain corrective and preventive actions prior to and following the manufacture of any additional units of the P&G Aerosol Products.
