Electrolux Vacuum Cleaners
September 2015: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Best Buy for allegedly misleadingly advertising Electrolux vacuum cleaners (Model EL4071A) as being equipped with HEPA filters (filters that capture dust, pet dander, mold, and pollen, and prevent the particles from escaping back into the air) when the vacuum cleaners are actually equipped with an “allergen” filter that does not meet the HEPA filter standards. (Early et al v. Best Buy Co., Inc., Case No. 15-cv-549, E. D. VA.)
