3M Paid the U.S. Government $9.1 Million to Settle Allegations that it
Knowingly Sold Defective Earplugs to the Military
A False Claims Act lawsuit against 3M alleged the company knew its Combat
Arms Earplugs, Version 2 were defective but sold the product to the military
without disclosing this information. The dual-ended earplugs were supposedly
designed to protect soldiers’ from exposure to loud combat noises
such as explosions and gunfire while allowing them to hear spoken words
The design, however, was allegedly defective, causing the earplugs to loosen
in a soldier’s ear and exposing them to loud noises, potentially
causing hearing loss and tinnitus. The earplugs were issued to military
members who served in Iraq and Afghanistan between 2003 and 2015.
