Babyganics Formula Misrepresentation

babysamantha severyn

Babyganics Baby Products (shampoo, sunscreen, diapers, detergent, etc.) has a name that implies “organic”. But further inspection shows this is not the case, and two mothers are taking them to court alleging only small quantities of organic ingredients.

According to their website, Babyganics Baby Products make everything from sunscreen to bubble bath to shampoo, diapers and laundry detergent, claiming their products are made with plant-based ingredients, organic when practical, along with carefully chosen synthetics or preservatives, when needed.

However, two plaintiffs have filed suit in U.S. District Court of the Southern District of New York claiming the products are misrepresented as advertised. Tanya Mayhew of Dutchess County, New York, and Tanveer Alibhai of Oakland, California have filed the complaint, and are represented by attorneys Jason P. Sultzer of The Sultzer Law Group PC in Poughkeepsie, New York; Charles J. LaDuca and Katherine Van Dyck of Cuneo Gilbert & LaDuca LLP in Washington, D.C.; and by Melissa W. Wolchansky and Amy E. Boyle of Halunen Law in Minneapolis.

They seek all monetary relief, attorney fees and court costs, punitive damages, and all further relief in addition to triall by jury and an order certifying their case as a class-action.

 

The case number for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York is: 7:16-cv-06981.
