P&G said it isn't paying the plaintiffs' damages.
The proposed settlement would end the legal action triggered by last year's launch of Dry Max, which P&G touted as thinner and more absorbent.
Following the launch of Dry Max, complaints about rashes spread quickly online but P&G said no link was found. In fact, in September, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada (HC) reported they found no link between Pampers Dry Max diapers and diaper rash. At that time, both agencies said they would continue to evaluate consumer complaints related to Pampers Dry Max diapers and provide parents with updated information if this assessment changes.
