Safeway Product Recall
Mehri & Skalet, in conjunction with the Center for Science in the Public Interest and others, has filed a class action lawsuit against Safeway for their failure to notify Club Card holders about recalls of dangerous or unsafe products.
Safeway collects phone numbers and other contact information for every customer who uses its Safeway Club Card, but fails to contact customers to inform them of product recalls, as other stores do. We believe that Safeway tracks all purchases and should use this information to inform customers of recalls and refund to customers the cost of the dangerous or unsafe food or product.
Plaintiffs filed their complaint in February 2011; the case is in its early stages.
Please contact us if you purchased products at Safeway that were subsequently recalled.
