December 2014: A federal judge preliminarily approved a settlement of this false advertising class-action lawsuit. According to the settlement terms, class members with proof of purchase may receive either a full refund for every product purchased or a new product for every one purchased. Class members without proof of purchase may receive a one-time cash refund of $4.50 for Vacuum Bottles purchases, a one-time cash refund of $8.50 for Plastic Bottle purchases, or one new product. In addition, the company removed the phrase “leak-proof” from the bottle’s packaging after the lawsuit was filed and agreed to ask the top ten retailers of the bottles to remove any “leak-proof” references from their online advertising.

Thermos L.L.C., Case No. 13-cv-04954, D. N.J.).
