Several Brands of Flushable Wipes

In December 2017, a class-action lawsuit was filed against several manufacturers of flushable wipes – specifically, Costco, CVS, Kimberly-Clark, Procter & Gamble, Target, Walgreens, and Walmart – for allegedly falsely advertising wipes as safe to flush, safe for plumbing and sewer systems, and biodegradable when, according to plaintiffs, the wipes do not break into small pieces or disintegrate upon flushing. (The Preserve at Connetquot Homeowners Association, Inc. v. Costco Wholesale Corp. et al, Case No. 17-cv-7050, E. D. NY.)
