A class-action lawsuit filed against Wal-Mart on Monday alleged that the company falsely advertised a popular baking soda brand on its website.
Roque Hernandez filed the suit alleging Wal-Mart advertised Arm & Hammer Fresh-N-Natural Baking Soda as a three pack for $2 on its website. When Hernandez purchased the product, he allegedly received only a single, 1-pound box.
Hernandez said he purchased the baking soda because of the price. He said when he called Walmart's customer service he was informed that the purchase price was for only one package.
The lawsuit alleged Wal-Mart violated the federal Food, Drug & Cosmetic Act and seeks class status for anyone who purchased the product online while it was advertised as a three pack. Hernandez is seeking more than $5 million in the suit.
Hernandez is represented by Robert L. Kraselnik, of the Law Office of Robert L. Kraselnik, PLLC; and Anne Seelig, of Lee Litigation Group, PLLC.
