Court Approves Infant’s Tylenol Nationwide Class Action Settlement

Richard D. Heideman, Noel J. Nudelman and Tracy Reichman Kalik of Heideman Nudelman & Kalik, PC, announced that a US federal court has granted Final Approval of the nationwide Class Action Settlement in the matter of Elkies, et al. v. Johnson & Johnson Servs., Inc., et al., Case No. 2:17-CV-7320-GW.

The Elkies filed suit in Los Angeles claiming  that the Infants’ Tylenol packaging (the text “Infants” and a picture of a mother holding her baby) deceives consumers into believing Infants’ Tylenol is unique/specially formulated for infants, when the bottle contains liquid acetaminophen of the same concentration in Children’s Tylenol, and therefore causes consumers to overpay for Infants’ Tylenol.

After obtaining class certification and completing merits discovery, the parties reached a nationwide settlement. The settlement creates a $6.315 million claim fund and also provides injunctive relief.

“We are pleased that the Court has recognized the fairness and value that this settlement has brought to consumers of Infants’ Tylenol nationwide,” said Noel J. Nudelman.

Tracy Reichman Kalik added, “the settlement not only provides class members with financial compensation but also provides important injunctive relief.”

The Class is represented by Class Counsel Richard D. Heideman, Noel J. Nudelman and Tracy Reichman Kalik of Heideman Nudelman & Kalik PC
