Case Name

KELLY MERGENS, on behalf of herself and all others similarly situated v. SLOAN VALVE COMPANY, and DOES 1-10, inclusive
Case No. 2:16-cv-05255-SJO-SK
District Court for the Central District of California

Case Summary

In June 2012 and January 2014, Flushmate and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission jointly announced a voluntary recall of Flushmate Systems manufactured from October 14, 1997 through June 30, 2009. The lawsuit, United Desert Charities, et. al. v. Sloan Valve Company, et. al., No. 12-cv-06878 (“UDC Action”), was filed following the June 2012 recall announcement. The voluntary recall was expanded on July 14, 2016 to include Flushmate Systems manufactured from July 1, 2009 through April 30, 2011. The lawsuit, Mergens v. Sloan Valve Company, No. 16-cv-05255 (“Mergens Action”), was filed following the July 2016 expanded recall announcement.

Some Flushmate III Systems manufactured between October 14, 1997 and April 30, 2011 may leak and/or burst at or near the weld seam of the Flushmate System’s vessel, releasing stored pressure. If the Flushmate System bursts, it can lift the toilet fixture’s porcelain tank lid and shatter the lid and/or the toilet’s tank, posing impact or laceration hazards and property damage.
