The lawsuit continues: “Nevertheless, Defendant’s Merchandise comprise a number of artificial substances.” Examples of artificial substances offered have been “zinc sulfate, copper sulfate, calcium pantothenate (or D-calcium pantothenate), thiamine mononitrate, l-lysine hydrochloride, pyridoxine hydrochloride, and menadione sodium bisulfite advanced.”
“Because of its misleading conduct, Defendant violates state client safety statutes and has been unjustly enriched on the expense of customers.”
“Defendant’s labeling and promoting places forth a simple, materials message: the Merchandise comprise solely substances which can be pure. Affordable customers would perceive Defendant’s labeling to imply that the Merchandise comprise solely pure substances, and never any artificial substances.”
“As a result of the labeling declare makes use of the phrase ‘and’ reasonably than ‘however,’ and doesn’t specify that the added nutritional vitamins, minerals and/or vitamins are artificial, an inexpensive client would count on that the ‘added nutritional vitamins, minerals and vitamins’ are pure as nicely.”
Do you agree? Does Purina’s label declare – “Pure Cat Meals with added nutritional vitamins, minerals & vitamins” transparently inform customers this pet meals incorporates un-natural (artificial) substances? Or is the assertion deceptive?
