Walgreens Multivitamin Tablets for Women Mislead People With Gelatin-Free Label
Walgreens received a proposed class action that alleges that they had falsely advertised the value size of its Women Multivitamin Tablets when they marketed it as gelatin-free when it actually has notable doses of gelatin.
What Else To Know About the Case
Complaints arose because of the Walgreens Vitamins labeling that deceived consumers, as they advertised to be at par with Centrum, which lists gelatin as one of its ingredients.
For a consumer, it would seem that the Walgreens vitamins are a generic, gelatin-free version of Centrum.
The lawsuit alleges that Walgreen has deceived customers into consuming gelatin, even if they were trying to avoid it because of allergy, religious, dietary, or moral reasons.
The case also claims that Walgreens has attempted to advertise its multivitamin tablets as a generic alternative to Centrum by including the words “Compare to Centrum Women” on the label and actually using the same color scheme.
The lawsuit was filed on the 25th of December last year, and its aim is to include all US residents who, between the 2nd of November 2015 and the final disposition of this and any related actions, bought the Walgreens Women Multivitamins for their own use and not for resale.
They operate as the second-biggest pharmacy store chain in the country. Their headquarters is in Deerfield, Illinois, and it was founded on the 29th of December 1901 by Charles Rudolph Walgreen.
Its services include filling prescriptions, health and wellness products, health information, and photo services.
