Class Action

Tropic Sun Aloe Vera Gel

June 2018: Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint bringing similar allegations.

May 2018: A federal judge dismissed the plaintiff’s claims because she failed to notify Family Dollar of the issue before filing the lawsuit and failed to allege enough facts to show that the store knew about the issue or that the alleged “deception implicat[ed] consumer-protection concerns.”

January 2017: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Family Dollar and Dollar Tree for allegedly falsely marketing Tropic Sun Aloe Vera Gel as being “Made with 100% Pure Aloe” and containing “Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice” when, according to the plaintiffs, the product does not contain any aloe vera. (Parrot et al v. Family Dollar, Inc. and Dollar Tree, Inc., Case No. 17-cv-222, N. D. IL.)
