IF YOU PURCHASED CERTAIN BRANDED CITRONELLA CANDLES AND TOTAL RELEASE FOGGERS BETWEEN MAY 4, 2015 AND JUNE 7, 2021, A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT MAY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS.

  • A proposed Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit (“Lawsuit”) called Christine Mendoza, et al., v. United Industries Corporation, Case No. 21PH-CV00670 pending in Phelps County Circuit Court, Missouri, which claims that United Industries Corporation (“Defendant”) deceptively marketed the efficacy of citronella candles sold under the Cutter and Repel brands (“Covered Candles”) and total release foggers sold under the Black Flag, Do It Best, Eliminator, Green Thumb, Hot Shot, No Pest, Real-Kill, Rid-A-Bug, Spectracide, and TAT brands (“Covered Foggers”) (together, the “Covered Products”).
  • You are included in the Settlement if you purchased at least one or more Covered Products for personal use between May 4, 2015 and June 7, 2021.
  • Defendant has agreed to review and address its labeling practices and will provide up to a maximum of $3,600,000 in payments to individuals who purchased Covered Products as well as other fees and expenses. Settlement Class Members can get up to $7.00 per Unit for a maximum of $14.00 without Proof of Purchase, and up to a full refund of purchase price for a maximum of six units with Proof of Purchase.

Your legal rights are affected even if you do nothing. Read this Notice carefully.
