Stericycle & Steri-Safe Settlement

July 22, 2024
1:13-md-2455 US District Court, Northern District of Illinois, Eastern District

Overview

Plaintiffs allege that Stericycle, a large provider of medical waste disposal services, did not honor the fixed prices it promised to charge its customers. Instead, Stericycle systematically and regularly raised its prices, without any justification and without notifying its customers. Plaintiffs allege Stericycle misled customers about its pricing and practices, and induced them to become or remain customers by falsely representing that its rates were fixed. Stericycle failed to disclose its practice of increasing prices, failed to notify customers that prices had changed, and then were not truthful about the reasons for price increases when clients challenged them.

Class

All persons and entities that, between March 8, 2003 through October 26, 2017, resided in the United States (except Washington and Alaska), were identified by Stericycle as a “Small Quantity” or “SQ” customer, and were charged and paid more than their Contractually Agreed Price for Stericycle’s medical waste disposal goods and services. Excluded from the class are governmental entities whose claims were asserted and resolved in United States ex rel. Perez v. Stericycle Inc. and any entities that have previously settled similar claims with Stericycle and released those claims.
