Sizzling finale to Sticky Frying pan Class-Action Lawsuit.
TAMPA, Fla. A woman that had purchased a non-stick frying pan off an “As-Seen-On-TV” ad, settled independently rather than through a class action suit. In what began in New York as a lawsuit based on the grounds that the non-stick frying pan was in fact too sticky, ended in a Florida federal court. The case and its settlement were made public on August 28 with the specific terms unspecified publicly.
Apparently, the $20 Blue Diamond Enhanced Ceramic Non-Stick Pan, wasn’t up to par with what was advertised on TV, and every time the buyer, a Florida resident, used the pan to prepared a fried meal, the food got stuck to the non-stick pan’s surface. In return, the Cookware Manufacturer responded to customers that were dissatisfied with the non-stick pan by offering their money back or replacing the pan through a warranty. However, the Florida plaintiff chose to dispose of the non-stick pan and file suit. Unfortunately for the plaintiff, the judge handling the cases dismissed her claim due to:
-Breach of express warranty;
-Breach of implied warranty of merchantability.
-Violation of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act
Nevertheless, the plaintiff presented her case to the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act by stating that the description on the product’s packaging was misleading to consumers as food do indeed stick to the pan during food preparation. The case is pending a ruling.
