Costco has agreed to pay $2 million in a false advertising lawsuit for those who purchased the Kirkland Signature “Moist Flushable Wipes.”

Individuals who previously bought Kirkland Signature Moist Flushable Wipes from Costco could be qualified to receive a portion of the $2 million settlement from the ongoing class action lawsuit.

The Top Class Actions stated that the payments are for customers who bought the wipes between July 1st, 2011, and May 31st, 2017.

According to the legal news website, Costco has not acknowledged any misconduct. On the other hand, the business has still committed to spending $2 million to “resolve the false advertising class action lawsuit.”

“The plaintiffs claim flushing them caused damage to pipes, septic systems, sewage lines and other plumbing,” Top Class Actions website reads. “Consumers argue they would not have purchased the wipes if they knew they were not truly flushable as advertised.”

Class members are eligible to receive $1.30 for each product they purchased, or up to a maximum payment of $55.90 (or 43 products) and a minimum payment of $7.50. Payment can be received without requiring proof of purchase, and claims must be submitted on the website by August 9th in order to be considered valid.

Kenosha Water Utility maintenance worker Alexander Kraus claims that he consistently finds them in sewers, and that there’s no such thing as a “flushable” wipe, due to how intact they are.

“They cling onto any small deposits or points where tree roots make their way into the sewer laterals,” he told FOX Business. “It’s just a matter of time before a backup occurs, especially from apartment complexes.”

According to Kraus, there are many instances when employees must excavate, fix, or replace the sewer lateral—a task that takes an entire eight hours.
