Purell makers hit with law suis over false claims

The manufacturer of Purell hand sanitizer is facing a new class-action lawsuit accusing them of making “false and misleading” claims that the product can kill “99.99% of illness causing germs.”

The latest of several such suits against GOJO Industries, Purell’s parent company, comes amid shortages of the product due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has infected over 285,000 worldwide.

This suit, which represents four people in California, Michigan, Massachusetts and Oregon, was filed in the Northern District of Ohio on March 13.

Per court documents, the suit says that by citing statistics on its product — such as claiming a single "squirt" of its sanitizer is twice as effective as its competitors — GOJO Industries creates the impression that the effectiveness of its products "have a reliable scientific basis,” when in fact, there is “no sound scientific evidence to support the statistics or other claims.”
