Ramsey-Standage v. Abbott Laboratories

Circuit Court of Phelps County, Missouri

Case No. 22PH-CV00853

IF YOU PURCHASED CERTAIN ABBOTT LABORATORIES INFANT FORMULA PRODUCT(S) BETWEEN JUNE 24, 2016, AND SEPTEMBER 22, 2022, A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT MAY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS

• A proposed Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit (the “lawsuit”) called Ramsey-Standage v. Abbott Laboratories, pending in Phelps County Circuit Court, Missouri. The lawsuit alleges that (i) the Label on certain infant formula Products manufactured by Abbott Laboratories states that the Products are capable of making a specified number of liquid 4-ounce bottles of formula, and (ii) the Products do not always yield the represented number of 4-ounce bottles of liquid formula when consumers follow the “Instructions for Preparation & Use” on the Label. Abbott Laboratories denies these allegations and asserts that its Labeling and marketing is truthful and entirely accurate, and its Products yield the number of 4-ounce bottles of liquid formula represented on the Label, but Abbott Laboratories has settled this case to avoid further litigation and distraction of resources from its business.

• You are included in the Settlement if, between June 24, 2016, and September 22, 2022, you purchased for personal use (i.e., not for resale) at least one or more specific infant formula Products manufactured by Abbott Laboratories.
