Johnson & Johnson to Pay $6.3 Million in Infant’s Tylenol Settlement

If you’ve purchased Infants’ Tylenol in the last five years, you could be eligible to receive a portion of a $6.3 million settlement from Johnson & Johnson in a class action settlement.

The settlement concerned the packaging and advertising of Infants’ Tylenol. The lawsuit alleges the packaging for Infants’ Tylenol showing a woman holding a baby, combined with the name of the product, leads consumers to believe the product is formulated uniquely for infants. The product actually contains the same amount of liquid acetaminophen in the same concentration as Children’s Tylenol.

Plaintiffs argued the deception led consumers to overpay for Infants’ Tylenol when it had the same concentration of medicine as Children’s Tylenol.

Customers who purchased Infants’ Tylenol between October 2014 and Jan. 6, 2020 can file a claim to receive a portion of the settlement. Consumers with a proof of purchase can receive $2.15 for every 1 or 2 fl. oz bottle purchased. Those without proof of purchase can still claim up to seven bottles for a maximum payment of $15.05. All claims must be submitted by April 13, 2020.

In addition to the settlement, Johnson & Johnson have agreed to “use reasonably diligent efforts to modify the packaging of Infants’ Tylenol and commit to educating and informing consumers.”

Those who wish to submit a claim can do so using this online claim form.

    Deception of something this simple to turn a profit, but yet its crazy to think they would put things in medicine and vaccines and then lie about it with billions on the line… big pharma has a history of unethical testing on people, lying about said testing, lying about ingredients, and disappearing people who speak out.
