In May 2020, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against S. C. Johnson & Son, Inc. for allegedly misleadingly marketing Windex Vinegar window cleaning product as an environmentally-friendly alternative to other cleaning products. Specifically, the complaint claims that the company labels the product as having a “Non-Toxic Formula” to convey that it is not harmful to people, pets, and the environment when, according to plaintiffs, the product contains potentially harmful and toxic ingredients.
