In November 2020, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against CVS Health Corp. and Nice-Pak Products for allegedly falsely marketing wipes – including CVS Health Flushable Cleansing Wipes and CVS Health Maximum Strength Formula Medicated Wipes – as “flushable” when, according to plaintiffs, the wipes do not disintegrate and cause plumbing problems, including clogs and floods.

, Case No. 20-cv-5483, E.D.N.Y.)
