JM Eagle Pipe Lawsuit
A JM Eagle class action lawsuit is claiming that the company falsely represented that its PVC pipes met crucial industry standards. Allegedly, JM Eagle committed unfair business practices by marking its PVC pipes as approved by a number of certification groups, including Underwriters Laboratories, even though the product did not meet stress tests. The plaintiff in the JM Eagle class action claims that he bought the JM Blue Brute C900 PVC pipe, which contained a UL Mark, indicating that it passed a number of tests, including one measuring longitudinal tensile strength (LTS); however, all of the Blue Brute pipes manufactured between 1997 and 2005 did not pass the LTS test, according to the JM Eagle class action suit.
JM Eagle PVC Pipe Failure?
Allegedly, JM knowingly misled consumers to believe that its PVC pipes met applicable industry standards. Furthermore, the company knowingly deceived the public by cherry-picking pipe samples for testing, while continuing to utilize a cheaper manufacturing process in its daily production, resulting in a weaker product, but higher profits, the JM Eagle pipe lawsuit claims. In light of these allegations, consumers who purchased this product and experienced PVC pipe failure or other problems may be able to seek compensation for the cost of their product, property damage, and other losses resulting from the installation of the allegedly substandard pipe.
