Proof of Purchase
Chepiga v. Conair Corporation, Case No. 3:17-cv-01090
District Court for the District of New Jersey
The lawsuit concerns Conair Corporation’s recall of the Cuisinart machines’ riveted blades. Some users have reported that when using the Cuisinart machines, the riveted blade could crack over time, causing portions of the blade to detach. The lawsuit claims that Conair promoted the Cuisinart machines as functional when in fact they did not function as claimed, that the machines lost value when consumers had to stop using the riveted blades, and that Conair violated express and implied warranties.
