SAN FRANCISCO (Legal Newsline) — CamelBak is facing a class action alleging its "spill proof" eddy water bottles are defective and leak.
Jessica Stewart and John Keller, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint Jan. 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against CamelBak Products LLC and CamelBak International LLC, alleging violation of the Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act, breach of express warranty, breach of implied warranty of merchantability, unjust enrichment and violation of California and New York law, negligent misrepresentation and fraud.
According to the class action, the plaintiffs purchased CamelBak "eddy" water bottles for between $12 and $13. They allege the bottles are falsely marketed and warranted as "spill proof." The plaintiffs also claim the design of the eddy is "fundamentally defective" because water runs, flows and falls out of the bottles and that the defendants had knowledge of the leaking issue but failed to issue a recall.
The plaintiffs seek monetary relief, trial by jury and all other just relief. They are represented by L. Timothy Fisher, Neal Deckant, Brittany Scott and Scott Bursor of Bursor & Fisher PA in Walnut Creek, Calif., and Miami.
