The Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner (CATBC) settlement resolves a class action lawsuit over Clorox?s claim that the Drop-In Clorox Tablets do not harm plumbing. The CATBC class action lawsuit alleges that the chemicals in the Drop-In Tablets corrode the toilet tank parts, causing the rubber and plastic parts to deteriorate until the flush mechanism fails or no longer seals properly. The Clorox class action lawsuit also claims that Clorox — based on its own tests — knew or should have known that the Drop-In Tablets would deteriorate the toilet sink parts, and yet sold the product by telling customers that it would not harm their plumbing. Clorox denies any wrongdoing and maintains that the Drop-In Tablets are safe for plumbing when used as directed. Clorox has decided to end the litigation, however, by establishing an $8 million settlement fund to pay out class members and pay for administrative costs.
You?re considered a member of the CATBC settlement class if you purchased, used or suffered any property damage from using the Drop-In Tablets between December 13, 2002 and September 15, 2010. Damages can include purchase price refunds, flapper replacement cost, etc.
