was filed against Woodstream Corp. for allegedly misleadingly representing that VICTOR® and VICTOR® PESTCHASER® ultrasonic repellers will drive rodents away from homes by emitting noises that can only be heard by rodents when, according to plaintiffs, the repellers do not work as advertised and there is no scientific evidence supporting the advertising claims.
