Amazon class action alleges retailer and workout equipment companies sold faulty resistance training bands
Overview of the Amazon Resistance Band Class Action:
- Who: A woman who bought a weight band on Amazon that broke, injuring her, is suing the retailer and some workout equipment companies.
- Why: The woman claims the companies sold unsafe workout equipment, rendering her now ‘unable to perform the duties of a wife’.
- Or: The lawsuit was filed in federal court in New Jersey.
Amazon and some workout equipment makers are being sued by a consumer who claims she was injured by a broken workout band, rendering her unable to perform “all the duties of a wife.”
Plaintiff Rona Koenig filed a product liability lawsuit against Amazon.com Inc. and the manufacturers in federal court in New Jersey on April 11. Her husband, Ronald Koenig, is also a plaintiff in the lawsuit.
According to the lawsuit, Rona Koenig suffered permanent injuries when one of the resistance bands she purchased broke.
The injuries were not explicitly stated in the lawsuit, but Koenig claims in his complaint that they were “serious”, costing him the loss of the enjoyment of life.
“The said plaintiff was unable to perform the duties of a wife and therefore the plaintiff, Ronald Koenig, was deprived of the company, the company and the consortium of [Rona Koening]“, indicates the lawsuit.
Amazon’s workout products were defective, class action alleges
Rona Koening purchased the bands from Amazon in August 2021 and then injured herself in October, according to the complaint. She says she suffered pain and suffering and had to pay medical bills.
She alleges the retailer is liable because it helped sell the allegedly dangerous tapes. It also claims that the product was either faulty or improperly inspected before it was shipped.
Fitness equipment companies Veick Sports, Junlong Sports Co., Rolaz and Changzhou Hengdasuliao Zhipinchang have been named as group suppliers, manufacturers and distributors.
The companies violated the warranty by selling a product that was unfit for its intended use, according to the Koenigs. They say the amount in dispute is over $75,000.
Meanwhile, spices sold by Amazon.com under its Happy Belly brand contain toxic heavy metals, including arsenic, cadmium and lead, a new class action lawsuit alleges.
The plaintiffs in this case claim that Amazon does not list toxic heavy metals in the spice ingredient list and does not warn consumers that they may potentially be present.
