Settlements over the 2021 recalls of consumer products like aerosol sunscreen and deodorant are under attack from both well-known class action objector Ted Frank and other plaintiffs lawyers, who claim they were shut out of the negotiations.

In multidistrict litigation against Procter & Gamble, at least one plaintiffs lawyer is threatening to unravel a settlement reached months after the Nov. 23 and Dec. 17 recalls of products, like Old Spice and Secret aerosol deodorant and Pantene dry shampoo, which contained dangerous levels of benzene. The settlement would provide cash or vouchers to consumers, and set aside $8 million for those who don’t have receipts.
