Equate Flushable Wipes
August 2015: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Walmart and Rockline Industries for allegedly misleadingly marketing Equate Flushable Wipes as “flushable” and “safe for properly maintained septic and sewer systems” when, according to the complaint, the wipes cause many plumbing issues, including clogged toilets. (Richard et al v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. and Rockline Industries, Case No. 15-cv-4579, E. D. NY.)
