NEW YORK (Legal Newsline) – A New York consumer alleges that Pret A Manger wraps are deceptively packaged.
Yee Ting Lau filed a complaint on behalf of herself and all others similarly situated on July 31 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against Pret A Manger (USA) Limited and John Doe Corporations 1-100 citing the Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that the defendant packs their sandwich wraps so that consumers cannot seek the slack-fill in the packaging. She alleges she has been injured financially and that the slack fill is non-functioning.
The plaintiff holds Pret A Manger (USA) Limited and John Doe Corporations 1-100 responsible because the defendants allegedly deny consumers the benefit of their bargain because they receive less food than they are promised.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and punitive damages, interest, restitution, injunctive relief, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. She is represented by C.K. Lee and Anne Seelig of Lee Litigation Group PLLC in New York.
