The Problem with 3M’s Earplugs

3M’s Dual-Ended Combat Arms Earplugs (CAEv2) were originally developed by a company called Aearo Technologies. 3M took over the manufacturing following its acquisition of Aearo Technologies in 2008. The earplugs were created to protect military troops from loud sounds like gunfire and explosions during combat and training.

However, the earplugs had a defect—the stem that connected the two ends was too short, which prevented the earplugs from sitting correctly in the ear. This allowed the loud noises the earplugs were supposed to defend from to get in, and in worse cases, cause hearing damage.

It has been alleged that both 3M and Aearo Technologies knew about the defect since 2000 yet continued to make the earplugs anyway. Though the earplugs are no longer manufactured, they were never recalled.
