Tops Market Coffee’s Actual Product Amount Does Not Make 90 Cups, Real Number Of Cups A Customer Can Make Found To Be Less Than 20%
Tops Market is being sued in a class action lawsuit over allegations that they falsely market the real number of cups brewable from their coffee products.
Customer Sues Tops Market
Filed in a New York federal court, the Tops Market Coffee Class Action Lawsuit is suing Tops Market for allegedly misrepresenting the number of cups a customer can make in each can of their Tops Market Coffee.
Lead plaintiff Deborah-Lee Adams argued that she has results of a conducted laboratory test which showed the actual number of cups of coffee a person can actually make with the amount of product present in each can.
Adams shared that she has bought Tops Market Coffee several times because she relied on the claims made on the product’s packaging, which shows that she and other customers can make 90 (ninety) cups of coffee for each can.
However, she was not able to make the number of cups of coffee stated on the product label every time she finishes her can of coffee.
Her experience was not an isolated case, though. It was reported that countless customers were also experiencing the same ordeal.
Independent laboratory testing even backed their claims by showing that a Tops Market Coffee can only make 72 (seventy-two) cups of coffee instead of 90 cups as advertised by the company. Data showed that each customer is allegedly getting 20% less coffee than what they reportedly paid for.
Tops Market Coffee Class Action Brief
The Tops Market Coffee Class Action Lawsuit filed by Adams asks the court to hold Tops Market accountable for several charges. They range from negligent misrepresentation, fraud to breach of warranty after allegedly duping customers into believing in its deceiving marketing claims. Furthermore, the retailer is accused of also violating several state consumer protection legislation.
Complainant Adams is asking the court to allow her to form and represent a Class consisting of members from Pennsylvania and Vermont who have bought a Tops Market Coffee after believing that they would get to make 90 cups of coffee. She is also aiming to hold Tops Market accountable for its misdeeds and pay for damages it has caused to its customers.
