Degree Deodorant Sprays Causes Yellow Stains and White Marks, Class Action Lawsuit Alleges
A class action lawsuit states that several Degree deodorant sprays leave yellow stains and white marks in contradiction to what Conopco, Unilever claims. It was filed in Missouri federal court on Tuesday.
Drew Huskey v. Conopco, Inc., et al.
Drew Huskey, the lead plaintiff, contends that Conopco, Inc., commonly referred to as Unilever, falsely markets its products, namely:
- Degree MotionSense
- Degree UltraClear Black + White
- Degree DrySpray
He seeks to represent other people nationwide who were allegedly tricked by Unilever’s product mismarketing, along with a subclass of Missouri residents.
Moreover, Huskey asserts that he made his antiperspirant purchases based on advertisements that the Degree deodorant sprays would not leave yellow stains and white spots.
Despite these marketing claims, he asserted that the product nevertheless left stains and marks on his clothes due to a deodorant formula ingredient.
According to the plaintiff, Unilever advertises a formula that assists in preventing white marks on dark clothing and yellow stains on white. However, he added that the procedure used by Unilever to make Degree deodorant sprays contains a chemical called aluminum chloralhydrate, which causes and develops these white marks and yellow stains.
Furthermore, according to the class action lawsuit, Unilever knew or should have been aware that the aluminum chloralhydrate included in its Degree deodorant sprays would cause stains and markings throughout product testing.
Plaintiff claims that he and other customers would not have purchased or spent as much on Degree deodorant sprays if they knew the products would result in the stains it claimed to prevent. He notes that he and other customers could have purchased genuine anti-stain and anti-white mark deodorant sprays.
Nobody Got Time For That!
The class action lawsuit stated that a typical customer could not determine simply by examining the claims on the product’s package and/or ingredient list. In addition, it will be challenging to determine that it actually contains nothing to help eliminate or prevent white marks and yellow stains.
Unilever is accused of misleading advertising of Degree deodorant sprays and breach of implied contract, breach of warranty, and unjust enrichment.
The lawsuit seeks to recover the premium Huskey and other Class Members paid for the allegedly falsely advertised Degree deodorant sprays.
