It is alleged  3M was aware prior to selling the earplugs to the military that testing procedures and fitting instructions were unlawfully manipulated. It is also claimed they sold the plugs from 2003 to 2015 “without disclosing the design defect.

The defective earplugs may have caused significant hearing loss in military veterans, including combat veterans. These earplugs were used extensively by service members where they were in close proximity to small arms, heavy artillery and rockets. These include service members who did tours in Afghanistan or Iraq; reserve members who were stateside but routinely fired weapons for training; as well as Navy and Air Force personnel. Current and former military service members who served any time from 2003 to 2015 may be entitled to compensation from 3M for their hearing loss or tinnitus.
