March 28, 2018- Kohn, Swift and Graf’s class action lawsuit against Costco and Trident Seafoods has been highlighted in the Seattle Times. The class action complaint alleges that Costco’s Kirkland Signature Wild Alaskan Fish Oil supplements do not contain the advertised amounts of omega fatty acids.
More On The Case
Product testing has revealed that the fish oil supplements contained about half of what was advertised. As a result of this discrepancy, the lawyers allege in the complaint, Plaintiff Leibowitz and others “purchased a product that they would otherwise not have purchased and paid more for a fish oil product than they otherwise would have paid.”
The case is currently being heard in New York Federal Court under state consumer protection laws and Federal Food, Drugs and Cosmetic Act causes of action. The case is styled Norman Leibowitz, et al., case number 2:18-cv-01254, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
