KGG Law is currently investigating claims that Dollar General sold its over-the-counter pain relief and fever reducing formula for “infants” at three times the price of its pain reliever marketed for “young children” – even though there was no difference between the products. Dollar General is alleged to have used deceptive marketing practices to mislead consumers into thinking that the pain relief medication for “young children” could potentially be dangerous for infants aged 2-3 years to take – despite the fact that both products contain the same active ingredient, acetaminophen, in exactly the same amount.
If the allegations are true, Dollar General should be held accountable for overcharging consumers. Contact Kantrowitz, Goldhamer & Graifman today to see if you are eligible to join a Dollar General Infants Pain and Fever Acetaminophen class action lawsuit. By charging different prices for interchangeable products, Dollar General may have committed consumer fraud.
Allegations in the Class Action Lawsuit Against Dollar General
Dollar General has sold two acetaminophen pain relievers under its own brand name, a pricier version for infants, and a less expensive version for young children. The company’s marketing and advertising suggested that the two versions were different, which led consumers to purchase the more expensive infant version to avoid the risk of an overdose.
Except for their different packaging and marketing, the two versions were exactly the same. Dollar General’s packaging wrongly convinced consumers that they could not give the less expensive child version to give to infants even though the product was identical to the more expensive infant version.
