SAN FRANCISCO (Legal Newsline) — A San Francisco consumer has filed a class action lawsuit against a cosmetics company, alleging fraud, liability, negligent misrepresentation and product liability.
Andrew Gasser filed a complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, March 27 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Kiss My Face LLC, alleging the defendant falsely promotes their product KMF body lotion to be able to "nourish naturally".
