Case Name

Liptai v. Spectrum Brands Holdings Inc., et al.,
Case No. 2018CV000321
Dane County Circuit Court, State of Wisconsin

Case Summary

This lawsuit is about the branding, identification of the manufacturer, identification of the warrantor, and the “cup” capacity of the covered products. Specifically, the Class Represenstatative alleges that defendants misrepresented that the covered products are manufactured and warranted by Black & Decker and Farberware, when in fact they are not. The Class Representative also alleges that defendants represented that the coffee makers produce a certain number of “cups” but that they did not produce 8- fluid ounces per “cup.”

Defendants deny these allegations and the Court has not ruled who is correct. The parties reached an agreement to avoid the time and expense associated with further litigation.

    I had purchased a BD can open in 2016. A sale item that, I thought, was a good deal. The can open broke within 30 days.

    ADMIN – Hi Garry,

    This settlement is not about quality

  6. P says:

    I have some of these items, but I’m curious: how does the cup measurement issue affect items such as can openers and electric knives?

    ADMIN – Hi P,

    It relates to the point of manufacture of all appliances.

  7. David King says:

    I have a BD coffee maker, can opener for my wife, toaster, and few other things. Few I threw away because they no longer worked.

    ADMIN – Hi David,

    I don’t think this settlement has to do with appliances that break.
