Suit claims Church & Dwight misrepresent vitamins

By Robbie Hargett | Feb 7, 2016

CHICAGO (Legal Newsline) – Two Illinois men are suing a vitamins and supplements manufacturer over claims it misrepresents its products as being made in the U.S.

Jack Wambach and Jason Finn, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class-action lawsuit Jan. 26 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division against Church & Dwight Co., alleging violations of consumer protection statutes in Illinois and several other states.

The defendant manufactures the Vitafusion brand of vitamins, including Vitafusion Multivites, the suit states.

The suit states the defendant represents that its products are made in the U.S., when in fact the products contain ingredients, such as vitamin C, that are sourced in foreign countries.

The plaintiffs and others in the class seek actual, compensatory and punitive damages, plus injunctive relief, attorney fees and costs, together to exceed $5 million. They are represented by attorney John E. Norris of Davis & Norris in Birmingham, Alabama, and by attorneys Gerald Bekkerman and Jennifer Bekkerman of Bekkerman Law Offices in Chicago.
