PHILADELPHIA, May 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The proposed class action settlement Bergman et. al. v. DAP Products Inc., et. al., (the "Settlement") is pending in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, Court Case No. No. 14-cv-03205-RDB. The Settlement relates to the XHose, XHose Pro and XHose Pro Extreme (collectively, the "Covered Products"). The class action alleges that some of the advertisements for the Covered Products were false and misleading, that the Covered Products are defective, and that Defendants have breached express and implied warranties for the Covered Products. Defendants deny all allegations of wrongdoing. The Court has made no determination of liability or wrongdoing. You may be included in the Settlement if you purchased a Covered Product at any time from January 1, 2012 to December 29, 2015, in the United States, its territories or any U.S. military exchange.
