Nestle / Deer Park Water Cooler Bottle Class Action Lawsuit

By Mike Holter

 

Deer Park water bottleA class action lawsuit claims Nestle Waters North America and Deer Park Natural Spring Water sell in-home water cooler systems that leak profusely, severely damaging floors.

The class action lawsuit claims that Deer Park, which is owned and operated by Nestle, supplies 3- and 5-gallon bottles of water to be used in in-home water cooler systems that contain pinholes near the mouth of the bottles that leak when placed into the cooler.

“On multiple occasions, these water bottles, upon insertion into the water cooler system, have profusely leaked and flooded Plaintiffs’ homes, causing severe structural, aesthetic and physical damage to said homes,” the Nestle Deer Park water bottle class action lawsuit states. This leaking and flooding is a direct result of Nestle and Deer Park’s “lack of quality control and adequate packaging operations and procedures.”

When customers complain about the leaking water bottles, Deer Park customer service allegedly provides no solution to the leaking issue aside from telling customers to “watch out for leaking.” Customers are further told that there is no way for the company to know if there are pinholes in each bottle and that they are unable to check every single bottle which is manufactured.

Despite knowing about the leaking problem, “Defendants failed to provide any form of notice to consumers of this recognized problem prior to or during their contractual agreements, as evidenced by the absence of any such statement on either of the Defendants’ websites,” the class action lawsuit states.

 
The Nestle Deer Park water bottle class action lawsuit is brought on behalf of all Pennsylvania residents who have contracted for an in-home water cooler system and Deer Park 100% Natural Spring Water 3- and 5-gallon bottles. It is seeking damages for class members and other relief.
