L'Oreal: Faced with a Class Action Lawsuit
Posted Thursday May 17, 2012 1:59 PM GMT
They have been accused of failing to warn consumers of the possible flammability of their Garnier products, and now L’Oreal has a pair of class action lawsuits on their hands.
The plaintiffs are suing the cosmetics giant for neglecting to label Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum as being potentially hazardous near flames, ignition, or high-heat styling appliances.
And now District Court Judge Christina A. Snyder has granted certification to the plaintiffs to begin pursuing their lawsuits as two consumer subclasses.
As a result, any consumer who purchased the product in question between February 4th, 2008 until now can participate. There were approximately 10 million units sold during that span.
