Today, we'd like to bring to your attention a class-action lawsuit filed against American Crafts, LC, a craft supply company, for their defective Ultra Foil Electric Heated Platform. The lawsuit, Fagnani v. American Crafts, LC, highlights the company's breach of warranties and alleges that the product poses safety hazards. If you are a consumer who has purchased this product, I encourage you to read this article carefully and consider joining the class action.

The class-action lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on February 14, 2024. The plaintiff, Kathleen Fagnani, represents a class of New York consumers who have purchased the defective product. American Crafts, LC, the defendant, manufactured, marketed, and sold the Ultra Foil Electric Heated Platform, which is the focus of the lawsuit.

The complaint alleges that the Ultra Foil Electric Heated Platform has defects that cause it to malfunction and pose safety hazards. The plaintiff argues that American Crafts breached express and implied warranties imposed by New York law. Express warranties are statements made by the defendant regarding the product's quality and performance, while implied warranties include the implied warranty of merchantability, which guarantees that the product is fit for its ordinary purpose.

The Defective Product: Ultra Foil Electric Heated Platform

The Ultra Foil Electric Heated Platform is a crafting tool designed to heat up foil for various crafting projects. However, the product has a defect that causes it to overheat, smoke, and potentially catch fire. According to the complaint, the product's defects are a result of the defendant's failure to properly design, manufacture, and test the product.

The plaintiff alleges that American Crafts breached both express and implied warranties. The company failed to deliver on its promises regarding the product's quality and performance. The complaint cites several instances where the product malfunctioned, including overheating, smoking, and catching fire, which demonstrates the defendant's failure to comply with the implied warranty of merchantability.

The defective Ultra Foil Electric Heated Platform poses significant safety hazards to consumers. The product's tendency to overheat, smoke, and potentially catch fire creates a risk of fire-related injuries, property damage, and even death. The plaintiff argues that American Crafts knew or should have known about the product's defects yet failed to take reasonable action to prevent injuries to consumers.

The plaintiff seeks an award of damages, costs, and attorney's fees, as well as any further relief deemed just and proper by the court. The plaintiff also requests that the court certifies a class consisting of all New York consumers who purchased the defective product.
