Joshua Poertner v. The Gillette Company and the Procter & Gamble Company, Case No. 6:12-cv-00803-GAP-DAP, in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida
The Duracell battery settlement will resolve class action lawsuits that allege Gillette and P&G engaged in deceptive and misleading advertising and marketing of Duracell Ultra Batteries. The plaintiffs claimed that the use of statements such as “Up to 30% Longer in Toys* *vs. Ultra Digital” and “Our Longest Lasting” deceived consumers into purchasing Duracell Ultra Batteries.
Gillette and P&G deny all wrongdoing and continue to stand by their Duracell products and advertising, but have agreed to provide refunds to consumers under a class action settlement that was preliminarily approved on Nov. 5, 2013.
