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
and commands. 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.
