In this issue, we’ll take a look at more products that may not live up to expectations, either due to potential defects or misleading advertising. First up, All-Clad Cookware is advertised as being safe to clean in the dishwasher, but doing so can allegedly damage the pricey pots and pans. Then, attorneys believe that Mercedes drivers should be getting more from the auto manufacturer after a recall was issued over potentially defective sunroofs. Plus, Hershey’s popular ONE protein bars may not be all they claim and more vehicles are being introduced to a new Chevy and GMC oil consumption saga.
Complaints have surfaced online that putting All-Clad cookware in the dishwasher can cause irreversible harm even though some versions of the product are advertised as being “dishwasher safe.” Now, attorneys are investigating whether a class action lawsuit can be filed over the issue. If filed and successful, a lawsuit could help people get back the money they spent on the cookware and require the manufacturer to change the way it advertises its products. If you noticed sharp edges, thinning, deterioration or other issues after putting your “dishwasher-safe” All-Clad cookware in the dishwasher, we want to hear from you.
A recall has been issued in an attempt to fix 744,000 Mercedes-Benz vehicles installed with sunroofs that could detach and fly off, increasing the risk of a crash. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org believe, however, that the recall is not enough. A successful class action lawsuit could provide drivers with benefits beyond what’s being offered by the recall – including money for loss of their car’s value. If your car was affected by the recall, head over to our dedicated page to learn why you may be owed money in addition to the free fix offered by Mercedes.

A proposed class action is claiming that the Hershey Company and subsidiary One Brands, LLC misrepresented the sugar, cholesterol and fiber content of their ONE protein bars. According to the lawsuit, the bars contain “substantially” more sugar and cholesterol than their labels indicate and “virtually no dietary fiber” despite advertising nine grams. Independent testing revealed that the products contain 40 percent more sugar, 96 percent more cholesterol, and 96 percent less dietary fiber than advertised. For a closer look at the case, we have you covered.
A fresh batch of Chevrolet and GMC vehicles have been named in a new proposed class action filed over excessive oil consumption. The latest suit specifically takes issue with the Generation IV 5.3 Liter V8 Vortec 5300 engine found in certain 2010-2014 vehicle models, which the lawsuit claims are “engineered to fail.” Allegedly plagued by defective piston rings that are unable to maintain enough tension to ensure oil stays within the crankcase, these engines can reportedly cause a slew of problems.
