Discounts at Carter’s and OshKosh B’gosh Stores
February 2016: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Carter’s, Inc. and OshKosh B’gosh, Inc. for allegedly falsely advertising discounts by comparing sale prices to false market prices. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the market prices were artificially inflated and were never the original prices for products. In addition, the market prices were not the prevailing market price within the three months immediately before the advertisement, as required by California law. (Morrow et al v. Carter’s, Inc., The William Carter Company, Carter’s Retail, Inc., OshKosh B’gosh, Inc. and Does 1-50, Case No. 16-cv-345, S. D. CA.)
