LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) – A consumer has filed a class action against Target after a makeup remover product allegedly caused an allergic reaction.
Megan McAteer filed a complaint individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated on Oct. 26 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Target Corp. citing the California Unfair Competition Law, the Consumer Legal Remedies Act and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff purchased Target's Up & Up Cleansing Towelettes - Evening Calm to wash her face and alleges she suffered an allergic reaction after using it. She alleges that the product is marketed that it "gently removes makeup" and hypoallergenic.
The plaintiffs hold Target Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly made material omissions and misrepresentations regarding the product.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendant for punitive, statutory, treble and exemplary damages, declaratory and injunctive relief, statutory and civil penalties, interest, costs, expenses, attorneys’ fees, and further relief as the court may deem appropriate. She is represented by Francis “Casey” J. Flynn Jr. of the Law Office of Francis “Casey” J. Flynn Jr. in Los Angeles and Jasper D. Ward IV and Ashton Smith of Jones Ward PLLC in Louisville, Kentucky.
