3M knew about the failed safety tests of the CAEv2 Dual-Ended Combat Arms ear plugs.
3M now has to pay a large $9.1 million dollar fine brought to light by a 3M employee who went public with internal ear plug testing information. The original ear plug design was provided by Aearo Technologies which may have known as early as 2000 that the designs were flawed in various tests. 3M didn’t re-design these plugs, they simply sold them to the Department of Defense.
Assistant Attorney General Chad Readler made this statement: “Government contractors who seek to profit at the expense of our military will face appropriate consequences.”
