Scott's EZ Seed Accused of False Advertising

Posted by Lawsuit Information on August 27th, 2015

This product was sold in the states of New York and California. If you purchased Grass seed from Scott’s EZ Seed, you may be eligible to join a class action lawsuit. If you’re wondering who would file a lawsuit against a grass seed company, think about someone in a state such as California which is already on a drought and needing to carefully choose watering times and ration water. Next consider someone with a very large yard who may have experienced all of their grass dying which is probably a very expensive problem to have. Some businesses rely on grass such as housing complexes, golf courses and sports fields.

Only the brand with the marketing slogan that said “50% Thicker With Half The Water**Versus ordinary seed when each was watered at half the recommended rate. Results may vary.” has been accused of false advertising. Studies still need to prove that this claim is unsubstantiated.

If you used this grass seed and can prove you purchased it and it didn’t work as promised, you may want to join the class action lawsuit. If you join the class action lawsuit, that is the only lawsuit you are legally allowed to be a part of against Scotts. So keep that in mind before joining.

If you are sure you do not want to be included in the class action lawsuit, go ahead and send a letter with the name of the lawsuit “Scotts EZ Seed Litigation, Case No. 12-cv-4727) as well as your name, address and intent to remove yourself from the lawsuit. This could be a potentially important step if you want to sue the company separately for you losses. The address to mail this to is re Scotts EZ seed Litigation c/0 GCG, P.O. Box 10208 Dublin, Ohio 43017-3908.  You must include your signature and have it in my September 21, 2015.

This may seem like a small thing to go to court over but the plaintiff is seeking compensation for the cost of the seed. Depending on how large the grass area was, it could potentially be a lot of money. One bag can be and is carried by Lowes, Walmart, Sears, True Value, Home Depot and People are claiming this label has a bogus claim that is unsubstantiated. The lawsuits are holding the company accountable for making false promises. This case is currently in the Southern District of New York state in the US District court.

This is a case that requires scientific evidence on both sides. It is not yet clear if the accusing parties have a real case yet. The manufacturer is still refusing to admit they have done anything wrong and they say that they studied their product extensively.

You can find out more information by email at or send a letter to the address above. Two companies are representing the class action lawsuit. Burser and Fischer, P.A. and Faruqi and Faruqi, LLP.
