April 2016: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Reckitt Benckiser for allegedly deceptively marketing Airwick® aerosol sprays as having the capability to eliminate odors and last up to one hour when, according to the plaintiffs, the sprays only mask odors and have little, if any, odor eliminating capabilities, and cannot provide an hour of freshness. (Agrawal et al v. Reckitt Benckiser LLC, Case No. 16-cv-2497, S. D. NY.)
