SAN FRANCISCO (Legal Newsline) — Two California consumers have filed a class action lawsuit against a health supplement company, alleging fraud, negligent misrepresentation, unfair competition and unjust enrichment.
Meg Larson and Diane Cabrera filed a complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, May 3 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Puritan's Pride Inc., The Nature's Bounty Co., formerly known as NBTY, Inc. and Does 1-10, alleging they falsely advertised their product as buy-one-get-one-free or buy-two-get-three-free.
According to the complaint, Larson and Cabrera suffered financially damages from being misled that they were getting free products for the price of one. The plaintiffs allege the defendants allegedly misleads consumers into buying their health supplement product thinking that they're getting one free for every purchase but in reality they were buying two.
Larson and Cabrera seeks trial by jury, to enjoin the defendant, order the defendant to remedy the fraudulent business practices, restitution, interest, disgorgement, all revenues and profits, damages, and all other relief the court deems just. They are represented by attorneys Stanley D. Saltzman, William A. Baird and Adam M. Tamburelli of Marlin & Saltzman, LLP in Agoura Hills, California.
