Procter and Gamble has settled a lawsuit brought by 59 parents who said that Pampers Dry Max Cruisers and Swaddlers diapers caused severe rashes, blisters and chemical burns. According to the settlement papers, P&G will pay each family $1,000 and cover the more than $2.73 million in legal fees.

According to the lawsuit, more than 4,000 complaints against the company were filed. The company’s Facebook page was inundated with complaints about the diapers. However, the Consumer Product Safety Commission investigated, and found no specific link between the diapers and the skin rashes.

U.S District Judge Timothy Black granted preliminary approval of the settlement in which Proctor & Gamble will –

  • Post new diaper rash treatment guidelines on its website
  • Modify labels and remove Dry Max from Swaddlers and Cruisers diapers
  • Fund pediatric resident training and education programs

Proctor & Gamble said that no damages will be paid to the plaintiffs, instead the settlement will give the company “another opportunity to educate our consumers on important issues regarding their babies’ health.”

The settlement will end litigation triggered by the class action lawsuit.
