Refund of Hand Sanitisers & KN95 Masks from Noni B, Autograph, BeMe, Crossroads, Katies, Millers, Rivers, Rockmans, W.Lane

Mosaic Brands Limited, an ASX listed company, has paid penalties totalling $630,000, and admitted that it breached the Australia Consumer Law in its promotion of pandemic-related ‘Health Essential Products’.

Products eligible for refunds:

  • Air Clean hand sanitiser sold on the NoniB website contained 70 per cent alcohol, when a sample tested by the ACCC was found to contain 17 per cent alcohol;
  • Miaoyue hand sanitiser sold by Millers contained 75 per cent alcohol, when a sample tested by the ACCC was found to contain 58 per cent alcohol;
  • Velcare-branded hand sanitiser products sold on its websites were ‘WHO-approved’, when they were not;
  • KN95 Kids Safety Face Masks sold on its websites were ‘CE/FDA certified’, when they were not; and
  • KN 95 Adult Face Masks were” non-refundable”, when in fact consumers have a statutory right to a refund under the consumer guarantee remedies.

Eligible customers:

  • purchased sanitiser in the same batches as the samples which tested below advertised alcohol concentrations to arrange a refund of the purchase price;
  • purchased the KN95 Kids Safety face masks to arrange a refund of the purchase price; or
  • were originally refused a refund on the basis the product was non-refundable, and invite them to have their refund re-assessed;
  • any customer who purchased a Velcare product relying on the representation that the product was ‘WHO-approved’.

A corrective notice and further information about how to apply for a refund are available on the websites of Noni B, Autograph, BeMe, Crossroads, Katies, Millers, Rivers, Rockmans and W.Lane. Apply for refund by Friday 22/10/2021.

    ACCC doing the real work right here.

  • You can save on some stuff like marketing to cut cost but not key components for health and safety products.

  • Dont bother trying to get a refund for items you never received. The absolute pathetic customer service is just not worth the stress I had trying to deal with about 6 people that just kept giving me the run around and not understand ing that I didn't receive items I'm out of pocket $60 and I will never shop at any of the brand's under this company again no stars for service at all shameful!!

    630k sounds like they got away lightly considering how much they probably would have blown through.. i wonder what tipped them off to do testing?

      CHOICE tested and complained to ACCC who did their own testing

    When an influencer is faking cancer and promotes products that don't help cure cancer, it's a million dollar fine.

    But fake hand sanitisers and masks that could have contributed to 1,500 deaths and other covid injuries, its only $630k fine?

    Wow. I would have seized the criminal proceeds of the crime in addition to the fine.

    Does anyone know how much fake products they sold?

    • You are literally comparing Apples and Oranges. Do you even know what ACCC does?

        Yes, but there's no suggestion of criminal charges by AFP, etc, for selling fake products during a pandemic where people's lives are at stake.

    edit: oh they did. Orchard De Flore 62% https://www.choice.com.au/health-and-body/beauty-and-persona...
