LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) – A San Pedro, California consumer alleges a brand of baby wipes is falsely advertised as being "natural" and actually contains artificial ingredients.
Elise Stewart, individually, on behalf of herself and others similarly situated, filed a complaint on Jan. 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Procter & Gamble Co. for alleged violation of California’s Consumer Legal Remedies Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff purchased defendant's Pampers Natural Clean wipes numerous times because the product is marketed and sold as being natural. The plaintiff alleges that contrary to the advertising, the product allegedly contains numerous non-natural, artificial, and/or synthetic ingredients.
The plaintiff holds Procter & Gamble Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly had an "improper motive to derive financial gain at the expense of accuracy or truthfulness in its practices related to the labeling and advertising of the product," the suit states.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks to award of compensatory, monetary and punitive damages, attorneys' fees, costs, pre- and post-judgment interest, and for such other and further relief as the court deems just and proper. She is represented by Naomi Spector and Christopher D. Moon of Kamberlaw LLP in La Jolla, California.
