Is there any Labelling norm established by the federal government of America for Mechandise including Health and Beauty Products.


Thanks for your question. The case was actually brought by the store after it was cited by the local department of consumer affairs for violating the applicable deceptive trade practices law. If it had been brought by an injured consumer (perhaps as a class action), it probably would have made sense to add claims in implied warranty.

I don't see why this suit wasn't filed on the implied warranty of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. Seems to me those are more clearly applicable to this case. Perhaps the remedies are better against "deceptive" practices?
