BROOKLYN — A customer is suing a pet pest control product company, alleging a product contained toxic chemicals despite claims of being all natural.
Chanan Nathan Pasik, individually and on behalf of others similarly situated, filed a class action complaint April 23 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York against Boon Technologies LLC, Wondercide LLC and Stephanie Lynn Boone, alleging violation of the Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
Pasik alleges a product manufactured by Boon Technologies was labeled in a deceptive manner. Namely, the suit says, the product claims to be 100% naturally derived with no chemicals, synthetic pesticides or toxic ingredients, safe around children and pets, safe for daily use and safe in direct contact.
The product, in reality, the suit alleges, contains two synthetic chemical substances. Based on the advertising claims made by the defendant, Pasik says he purchased the product but was shocked to see there indeed were synthetic chemicals in it.
Pasik seeks trial by jury, statutory damages of $50 per class member, punitive damages, attorney' fees and costs. He is represented by attorney Mark Schlachet of Cleveland.
