Consumer Protection Law

Tums changed their packaging standards on the individual

Customer Question
roll. the package comes unglued...
Tums changed their packaging standards on the individual roll. the package comes unglued very easily and the tablets wind up unprotected in my pocket. i have to throw them away. i have complained, and they are not fixing the bad glue job, because they know people will buy a new roll after the package breaks open. it is a blatant revenue grab. The product is awesome, so i continue to purchase. GSK Consumer Products Division should be fined heavily for this underhanded practice.
JA: What state are you in? And is a local attorney or other consumer protection advocate helping with this?
Customer: NJ/NY
JA: Have you contacted the manufacturer?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: no. just what i said, i need the product, they are ripping me off because i throw away dirty tablets out of the bottom of my pocket and buy a new pack

Please allow me several minutes to read your facts and type my response both initially and when you add a follow up question or add facts. Please don't ask "are you there", "where is my answer", etc., since when you post it can erase what I am working on. If we are having a conversation unless I tell you I am going offline, I will be here but I may be doing research.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
