LEX GROUP Inc. has launched a national class action lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson Inc. and Johnson & Johnson (hereinafter collectively “J&J”), on behalf of Canadians who have purchased one of J&J’s Baby BEDTIME line of products, including without limitation the following:
- Johnson’s ® Baby BEDTIME ® Lotion
- Johnson’s ® Baby BEDTIME ® Bath
(hereinafter collectively the “Baby Bedtime Products”).
J&J has marketed its Baby Bedtime Products as clinically proven to help babies sleep better through the night. The class action proceedings allege that J&J engaged in deceptive, misleading, false, and/or unfair advertising when promoting their Baby Bedtime Products as having the ability to help babies go to sleep easier and sleep better through the night. Moreover, the proceedings allege the use by J&J of deceptive and misleading clinical studies and claims in its marketing of the Baby Bedtime Products.
Accordingly, if you have purchased one of the Baby Bedtime Products mentioned above, then you may be part of the proposed Class defined by the class action initiated by our office. Should you be defined as a member of the class, you may be entitled to compensation should the Court authorize and ultimately grant the class action, or should a settlement be reached (and approved by the Court).
