The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) has decided to consolidate for pre-trial proceedings 10 actions pending in seven federal district courts alleging that The Dial Corp. misled consumers by making “unsubstantiated health claims” while promoting Dial Complete Foaming Antibacterial Handwash® to consumers and further that the product’s antibacterial ingredient “may lead to bacterial resistance.” In re: Dial Complete Mktg. & Sales Practices Litig., MDL No. 2263 (JPML, transfer order entered August 18, 2011). The cases have been transferred to the District of New Hampshire. While none of the parties sought transfer to this court, the JPML selected it because Judge Steven McAuliffe “is an experienced transferee judge who is presiding over one of the related actions and is not currently presiding over other multidistrict litigation.”
