S.C. Johnson & Son Inc., maker of Method cleaners and other products, has agreed to a $2.25 million settlement benefiting consumers who purchased certain products that were allegedly falsely labeled as “non-toxic.” Class Members may file a Method settlement claim form and recover up to $10 without proof of purchase.

The Class in the Method class action lawsuit settlement includes anyone living in the United States who purchased certain Method products with “non-toxic” labels in the United States between May 14, 2016, and May 13, 2021, for use and not for resale. The covered Method products include all sizes and fragrances of the following:

  • Method All-Purpose Cleaner
  • Method Squirt + Mop Hard Floor Cleaner
  • Method All-Purpose Cleaner for Dog
  • Method Bathroom Cleaner
  • Method All-Purpose Cleaner for Cat
  • Method Wood for Good Daily Clean
  • Method All-Purpose Cleaning Wipes
  • Method Dish Soap, Method Smarty Dish
  • Method All-Purpose Cleaning Wipes for Dog
  • Method Smarty Dish Plus
  • Method All-Purpose Cleaning Wipes for Cat
  • Method PowerDish
  • Method Squirt + Mop Wood Floor Cleaner
  • Method Daily Granite Cleaner
  • Method Foaming Bathroom Cleaner
  • Method Stainless Steel Polish
  • Method Glass + Surface Cleaner
  • Method Heavy Duty Degreaser
  • Method Wood for Good Polish
  • Method Daily Shower Cleaner

The plaintiffs in the Method class action lawsuit had argued the products’ claims of being non-toxic were false and misleading because the products have the capacity to harm humans or the environment.

S.C. Johnson’s family of brands includes many well-known and widely-used product lines, including Glade, Drano, Kiwi, Meyer’s, Off!, Windex, and others.

The company stands by its product testing, which was used in making the “non-toxic” claims on the Method cleaners.

While the Court has not ruled in favor of either party in this case, both parties have agreed to  a settlement in order to avoid the costs and risks associated with trial.

Method Cleaners Settlement Benefits

Each Class Member’s payment will depend on the number of Method cleaners or products purchased that had the “non-toxic” labels, as well as on the number of valid claims submitted.

Class Members who have proof of purchase (itemized store receipts, loyalty/membership card printouts, non-identical original UPC codes, and pictures of non-identical UPC codes) may file a claim form seeking reimbursement of $1 for every covered product purchased.

Class Members who do not have proof of purchase may seek a reimbursement of $1 for up to 10 products purchased.

A Class Member may file a claim for products both with and without proof of purchase. These types of claims will be subject to the same potential reimbursement maximums allowed.

Each type of claim requires the Class Member to state, under penalty of perjury, that they purchased the Method cleaner for personal use; all claims must include the approximate dates of purchase.

If the total amount of claims and other expenses exceeds the settlement fund amount, each claimant’s award will be reduced proportionately; if money remains in the fund, awards may be proportionately increased.

In addition to the monetary relief, S.C. Johnson has agreed the covered Method products will no longer be advertised as “non-toxic.”

A final fairness hearing in the Method cleaners class action settlement will be held Nov. 16, 2021.

The deadline to opt out of or object to the Method class action lawsuit settlement is Oct. 18, 2021.

The deadline to submit a Method settlement claim form is Nov. 1, 2021.
