CHICAGO (Legal Newsline) – An Illinois man alleges a Santa Ana, California, company uses misleading and inaccurate labels on its vitamins.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he suffered damages as the result of being misled into purchasing the defendant’s Yummi Bears vitamins, which he believed to be domestically sourced because of the words “Made in the USA” on the label. The plaintiff holds Hero Nutritionals Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly uses foreign-sourced ingredients in the vitamins and the Made in USA label is deceptive.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunction against the defendant, award plaintiff compensatory and punitive damages, all legal fees and interest, and any further relief the court grants. He is represented by John E. Norris of Davis & Norris LLP in Birmingham, Alabama, and Julie Simpson of Simpson Law Group in St. Charles, Illinois.
