NEW YORK (Legal Newsline) – Consumers have filed a class action lawsuit against the makers and sellers of homeopathic teething products over allegations they paid for products that are useless and unsafe.
Lisa Corbett, Laura Kasiotis and Jennifer O'Neill filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Nov. 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against
Church & Dwight Co. Inc., Standard Homeopathic Co., Hyland's Inc., CVS Health Corp. and Target Corp., alleging breach of implied warranty of merchantability and other counts.
According to the complaint, the defendants manufactured or sold homeopathic teething products that were voluntarily withdrawn from shelves after the Food and Drug Administration issued warnings with the drugs' use. They allege they were never offered a refund.
The plaintiffs hold Church & Dwight Co. Inc., Standard Homeopathic Co., Hyland's Inc., CVS Health Corp. and Target Corp. responsible because they were injured by purchasing an allegedly worthless product.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek damages, treble damages, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. They are represented by Jeffrey I. Carton, Myles K. Bartley and Robert J. Berg of Denlea & Carton LLP in White Plains, New York.
