Excerpt from Duracell Battery Class Action Lawsuit

A federal class action lawsuit has been filed against Duracell and its parent corporation, Procter & Gamble (P&G), alleging violations of the California Consumer Legal Remedies Act and Unfair Competition Law.

In James Collins v. Duracell, Inc. and The Procter & Gamble Company, Duracell and P&G are accused of engaging in deceptive conduct and false advertising by claiming that Duracell Ultra Advance and Ultra Power premium batteries last longer than Duracell’s competing, less expensive batteries.
