What is this lawsuit and Settlement about?
The lawsuit alleges that Dollar General Corporation used deceptive and misleading sales and marketing tactics in selling its infants' over-the-counter pain reliever and fever reducer under the “DG™ health” label, including its Infants' Pain & Fever Acetaminophen ("DG Health Infants' Acetaminophen"). Dollar General vigorously denies all allegations of wrongdoing or liability made in the lawsuit. The Court has not decided who is right or wrong. Instead, Plaintiff and Dollar General have agreed to a Settlement to avoid the risk and cost of further litigation. If approved by the Court, the Settlement will establish a $1.8 million Claim Fund. Dollar General will also agree to change its packaging.
