Merck & Co. “Coppertone SPF 55-100+” Collection
June 2014: Another class-action lawsuit was filed against Merck & Co., Inc. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the company misleadingly markets sunscreens in the Coppertone SPF 55-100+ Collection as providing greater protection from the sun than Coppertone sunscreens with an SPF of 50 when, in actuality, these sunscreens contain the same active ingredients and provide the same protection from the sun. (Gisvold v. Merck & Co., Inc., Case No. 14-cv-01371, S.D. Cal.).
