BROOKLYN, N.Y. (Legal Newsline) – A New York resident is suing a soap and hand sanitizer manufacturer, alleging it misrepresents some of its products.
Ari Rosner, of Brooklyn, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit April 13 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York against CleanWell LLC, alleging breach of express and implied warranties, unjust enrichment, negligent misrepresentation and violations of the New York General Business Law, consumer protection statutes in all states, and the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
The suit states CleanWell markets and advertises several of its hand sanitizer and soap products as "natural" and/or "all-natural." However, the lawsuit alleges, the products actually contain artificial and synthetic ingredients.
As a result, consumers paid a premium for misrepresented products, the complaint says.
Rosner and others in the class seek a jury trial, declaratory and injunctive relief, monetary damages, punitive damages, attorney fees and other costs of the suit. They are represented by attorneys Jason P. Sultzer and Joseph Lipari of The Sultzer Law Group PC in Poughkeepsie, New York.
