In November 2018, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Walmart for allegedly misleadingly marketing its Equate™ Rapid Release products as being comparable to Tylenol® Extra Strength Rapid Release Gels when, according to plaintiffs, the Tylenol® products have “unique laser drilled holes” that the Equate™ products do not have. Plaintiffs also claim that Walmart misleadingly markets the Equate™ products as “rapid release” when, according to plaintiffs, the medicine does not work faster than non-rapid release products. (Edwards et al v. Walmart, Inc.
, Case No. 18-cv-9655, C. D. CA.)
