Jurisdiction US District Court for S.D. NY
Summary

Defendants retail cleaning supplies containing "natural, clean, safe, non-toxic, hypoallergenic, and naturally derived  ingredients." (Complaint, page 1).  These descriptors feature prominently in Defendant's marketing and labeling.  However, Plaintiffs allege that the products in question contain numerous ingredients that do not fit this characterization.  As a result, consumers were deceived into purchasing products they would not have otherwise.
