TULA Life, Inc. $5M Class Action Settlement
It has been agreed that a settlement will be reached in the class action lawsuit filed against TULA Life, Inc. over alleged false advertising of its products containing probiotics.
Emily Morrissey, et al. v. TULA Life, Inc.
Plaintiffs Emily Morrisey, Tammy Carpenter, Aiza Ejaz, and Julie Gurdin (collectively, the “Class Representatives”) claim that they had been misled into believing that live cultures were present in skincare products which TULA advertised as containing “probiotics,” despite the fact that no such products were found.
Probiotic extracts, according to TULA, are included in the formulation of its products for skincare applications. As a result, TULA vigorously denies any and all charges of wrongdoing; meanwhile, the Court has not established who is true.
However, the parties agree upon the TULA Probiotics Settlement in order to avoid the uncertainty and costs associated with continuing litigation in the future.
Consumers who purchased TULA Life products may be entitled to file a claim without providing proof of purchase which is part of a $5M class action settlement agreement.
Anyone who purchased TULA Life skincare products between January 1, 2013, and August 30, 2021, in the U.S., its territories and districts are included in the Class.
TULA manufactures a wide range of skincare goods, including cleansers, creams, serums, and scrubs, among other things. TULA is available for purchase online and at select retailers, including Ulta, Target, as well as Nordstrom.
TULA Probiotics Settlement, 2021
After administrative costs, attorneys’ fees, and other expenses are removed, Class Members who submit a valid claim will receive a share of the $5M TULA Probiotics Settlement fund.
Individuals who produce evidence of purchase with their claim form will be entitled to a refund of 10% of the amount they spent for the covered TULA goods, or $4, whichever is larger, limited to a total of $25 per household.
Class Members who submit claims without providing proof of purchase will be entitled to a cash payout of $4.
These rewards may be increased or decreased in accordance with the number of claims filed.
Along with financial compensation, the corporation has agreed to modify the labeling or packaging of certain items to reflect they do not comprise live cultures or probiotics.
The TULA Life settlement’s final approval hearing is planned for October 26, 2021.
Anyone seeking to opt-out of the settlement or object to it must do so by September 30, 2021.
The claim submission deadline is December 10, 2021.
