NEWARK, N.J. (Legal Newsline) - A class action lawsuit filed against Walmart on Monday alleges that the company falsely advertised a popular baking soda brand on its website.

Roque Hernandez filed the suit alleging Walmart 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 one-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 alleges Walmart 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 and Anne Seelig of Lee Litigation Group, PLLC.

United States Court for the District of New Jersey case number 2:15-cv-00201
