Wet Ones Hand Wipes

In July 2020, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Edgewell Personal Care for allegedly falsely marketing that Wet Ones hand wipes “Kill[] 99.99% of Germs” when, according to the complaint, the active ingredient in the wipes is not effective against certain germs, viruses, bacteria, and spores. Plaintiffs also claim that the wipes are hypoallergenic and gentle on skin when, according to the complaint, they contain irritants, allergens, and toxins. (Souter et al v. Edgewell Personal Care Company et al, Case No. 20-cv-1486, S.D. Cal.)
