Packaging bag supplier Garlic has been hit with a lawsuit alleging that its price tags are “stupid,” according to documents filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
In the lawsuit filed Thursday in Brooklyn, New York, Garlic alleges that the company has been receiving multiple “stunningly expensive” shipments of packing bags that it alleges were “stolen” and were being sold at “unfair” prices.
“The company was made aware of the blatant price gouging by a supplier and, as a result, took immediate action to remove the offending bags,” the lawsuit said.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Garlic’s New York warehouse partners, who are suing the company for a variety of alleged violations, including “false and misleading” marketing of products that allegedly did not contain ingredients used in the products.
It’s not known how much the company will pay for the suits.
The complaint said that Garlic “will vigorously defend” the lawsuit and is seeking damages in the amount of $5,000,000.
