In this issue, we’ll start things out by taking a look at a specific Philips Avent baby bottle warmer. Attorneys have reason to believe that the warmer may not be functioning properly to the point where it overheats infant milk bottles to unsafe temperatures.
Then, we have an investigation into how Kroger.com handles the personal information of account holders who use the website to browse, shop and order items – including medication from the pharmacy. For our final two investigations, attorneys are looking to hear from those who received notice of default letters from a handful of mortgage servicers and workout enthusiasts who use MuscleandFitness.com and are concerned about their online privacy.
Also, remember to check out our new section featuring the most recent data breach investigations and, as always, the latest class action settlements you may be able to claim.
Parents have been reporting that Philips Avent Premium Fast baby bottle warmers – despite being advertised as having a “smart temperature control sensor” that warms milk and maintains it at the “ideal temperature” – overheat bottles to temperatures that are unsafe for infants. Other buyers have said that the milk is still cold even after the device indicates that the bottle is ready. Attorneys are now investigating whether a lawsuit can be filed over the problem. If you’ve experienced these issues with your Philips Avent Premium Fast baby bottle warmer, you can learn more about the investigation here.
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org believe that Kroger.com may be using tracking tools to secretly share online account holders’ browsing and shopping habits with Facebook and other third parties. It’s possible that this data could contain customers’ protected health information if they purchased medicine or pharmacy-related products, and the attorneys are looking into whether a class action can be filed over potential violations of state and federal privacy laws. A lawsuit could help compensate Kroger.com account holders and potentially force the grocery store chain to change its data sharing practices. Read more about the investigation on this page.
Our settlements page is always being updated. Have you checked to see if you're covered by any open settlements? You can also check out the latest settlements as they happen by following us on Twitter.

If you received a notice of default letter from PHH Mortgage, Wells Fargo, Flagstar Bank, CrossCountry Mortgage or PennyMac Loan Services after falling behind on mortgage payments, you aren’t alone – and now, attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether these notices contained false statements intended to intimidate borrowers into making immediate payments. If so, class action lawsuits could help consumers recover money and potentially force these mortgage servicers to ensure that their communications with borrowers are not misleading. If this sounds like something you’ve been dealing with, read up on the details here.
Attorneys have reason to believe that MuscleandFitness.com and plus.MuscleandFitness.com may be using tracking tools to secretly transmit details about certain users and the videos they’ve watched to Facebook in violation of the federal Video Privacy Protection Act – and now, they’re investigating whether a lawsuit can be filed. If you are a MuscleandFitness.com newsletter recipient or Muscle&Fitness+ accountholder, watched videos on either site, have a Facebook account, and live in California or Massachusetts, you may be able to help get a class action started.
