TORONTO, Aug. 27 /CNW/ - The law offices of Juroviesky and Ricci LLP have
filed two class action lawsuits in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice
against major manufacturers of sunscreen in Canada: Playtex and
Schering-Plough Canada ("Defendants"), manufacturers of Banana Boat and
Coppertone sunscreen products, respectively.
Note that these are two separate class actions. Depending upon which
brand you purchased, one, both or none of the class actions may apply to you.
The suits claim that the Defendants deceptively marketed and/or
mislabeled their sunscreen products by misrepresenting their protective and
useful qualities, resulting in unjust enrichment for the Defendants at the
expense of consumers.
For further details or to sign up as a class member, please see the two
statements of claim on Juroviesky and Ricci's website:

Superior Court of Justice are the result of an extensive and independent

the knowledge of Juroviesky and Ricci LLP, no other statements of claim have
been filed in this matter against the Defendants and no other law firms, as at
the time of filing the statements of claim, represent plaintiffs in this
