Thread DetailsLast Edited by jdrodgers1013 September 29, 2010 at 08:38 AM
If you have ever used those Clorox drop in tablets in your tank thinking they would help keep the bowl clean and not harm your plumbing AND you purchased, used or suffered property damage from December 13, 2002 to September 15, 2010 AND you don't work for Clorox or are family members of the attorneys or judge, then this may be for you . . . .
Overview of The Proposed Settlement
Hartless v. Clorox Company, Case No. 06-CV-2705 CAB
A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit about Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner with Bleach (CATBC) and Clorox
What is this lawsuit about?
Each package of Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner with Bleach ("CATBC" or "Drop-In Tablets") states that the toilet cleaner "does not harm plumbing." Plaintiff claims that this statement is deceptive. Plaintiff claims that the chemicals in the Drop-In Tablets corrode the toilet tank parts, in particular, causing the rubber and plastic parts to deteriorate until the flush mechanism fails or no longer seals properly. Plaintiff also claims that Clorox - based on its own tests - knew or should have known that the Drop-In Tablets would deteriorate the toilet tank parts, and yet sold the product by telling its customers that CATBC would not harm their plumbing.
Clorox denies all claims of wrongdoing and contends that CATBC is safe for plumbing when used as directed.
