The settlement is the largest recovery for opioid drug mis-marketing in U.S. history, according to the Department of Justice, and is made up of $647m to the federal government, $700m to states and $50m to the Federal Trade Commission.
The government alleged that an ex-Reckitt subsidiary sought to increase prescriptions for Suboxone Film by deceiving health care providers into believing the drug was safer than other opioid addiction treatments.

Suboxone Film was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2010. Indivior was spun off into a separate company from the RB Group in December 2014, but the exposure and looming litigation and probes related to Suboxone were still attached to the parent company.

Reckitt had initially set aside $400 million to settle the investigation.
Admittedly, the settlement will act as a drag on cash flow at a time when Reckitt Benckiser is looking to shift the debt taken on to fund its 2017, $18bn acquisition of Mead Johnson, but bulls will be hoping that its strongly cash-generative business model ensures it can still reduce leverage while raising the dividend in the years to come. "Importantly, the resolution will protect RB's participation in all U.S. government programmes". In addition to prescription medications, Reckitt has a wide assortment of consumer products including Mucinex and Lysol cleaners.
