SAN FRANCISCO (Legal Newsline) – A Dublin, California consumer alleges that a brand of baby wipes is falsely advertised as natural.
Nasreen Haris, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on Dec. 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Kimberly-Clark Worldwide Inc. and Does 1 through 10 over alleged violation of California's Consumers Legal Remedies Act and California's False Advertising Law.
According to the complaint, Haris alleges that she purchased defendant's Huggies' Natural Care Wipes in the last two years and relied on the representation and warranty that the products were all natural. The plaintiff alleges that the products contain synthetic and chemical ingredients, and the natural label constitutes false and misleading advertising.
