Welspun lands Walmart, Target, Bed Bath in legal pickle over fake 'Egyptian' cotton products
Updated : May 22, 2019 11:07 AM IST
Monday's decision by US District Judge Vincent Briccetti in White Plains, New York, addressed claims that consumers nationwide overpaid for mislabelled cotton produced by Indian textile company Welspun India Ltd.
According to the complaint, the retailers sold Welspun's "Egyptian" cotton well into 2016 even though Target and Bed Bath & Beyond had known for several months, and Walmart had known as early as 2008, that the cotton was mislabelled.
The cotton was sold under the Fieldcrest, Royal Velvet, Better Homes and Gardens, Canopy, Crowning Touch and Perfect Touch brands.
