|Claim Form:||Gerber Claim Form|
|Case Name:||Montanez v. Gerber Childrenswear, LLC, Case No. CV 09-07420-DSF (DTBx)|
The plaintiffs allege that Gerber Childrenswear clothing contained chemicals that caused skin irritation. Gerber denies the allegation, and the case was settled before a court had a chance to weight the evidence in this case.
We think that expecting consumers to retain baby clothing from 2005 in order to receive a monetary settlement is outrageous. For parents to get vouchers, for only 10-15% off, is close to useless. Most parents that had a baby in 2005 likely are not still buying baby clothing in 2014 when vouchers are issued. And even those parents who still are buying clothing are unlikely to keep buying Gerber, particularly if it caused skin irritation in the past, and particularly for such a modest discount.
