TrueSTEAM Humidifier Settlement

Charles Leach v. Honeywell International, Inc.
United States District Court, District of Massachusetts, Case No: 1:14-CV-12245-LTS

Welcome to the TrueSTEAM Humidifier Settlement Website

If you own or have owned one or more TrueSTEAM Humidifiers, you could get a new humidifier or a payment from a class action settlement.

Class Members who file a timely and valid claim, including proof that between January 1, 2008 and April 14, 2017 they owned a TrueSTEAM Humidifier, will be eligible to receive EITHER (1) their choice of one of three Award Humidifiers or (2) a Cash Payment of $30, $35, or $40 (depending upon the size of the TrueSTEAM Humidifier they owned) .

The Class (also referred to as the “Settlement Class”) includes all persons within the United States, including all states, the District of Columbia and all commonwealths, territories or places within the jurisdiction of the United States, who owned one or more TrueSTEAM Humidifiers between January 1, 2008 and April 14, 2017 for personal or household use.

The Settlement resolves litigation brought against Honeywell International Inc. (“Honeywell”). The litigation alleges that TrueSTEAM Humidifiers were defectively designed and manufactured and deceptively marketed, primarily in relation to the alleged effects of mineral scale and sediment build-up on the units. Honeywell vigorously denies all allegations of wrongdoing or liability of any kind associated with the claims alleged in this litigation. However, to avoid the cost of a trial, and potential risks for both sides, the Parties have reached a Class Action Settlement Agreement and Release (“Settlement”), which was preliminarily approved by the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts on April 14, 2017.
