Pfizer Accused of Consumer Fraud over Advil Packaging

Brooklyn, NY: Pfizer is being accused of consumer fraud vis a vis misleading packaging of its highly popular over-the-counter pain reliever Advil. Among the allegations in a recently filed lawsuit by Matthew Fermin, Lichun Huo, Josefina Valdez and Adriana Sousa on April 14 are that the pharmaceutical company' Advil ibuprofen dry pills and Liqui-Gels lines were sold with "nonfunctional slack-fill"that violates state law.

"The size of the bottles in comparison to the volume of the products contained therein makes it appear as if the consumer is buying more than what is actually being sold,"the lawsuit states. "By increasing the size of the product packaging, (Pfizer) maximizes the shelf presence of its products over competitor products."

Prfizer is accused of violating the law in all 50 states and selling 25 different products with misleading labels.
