A class action lawsuit has been filed against GOOP Inc., a modern lifestyle company owned by actress Gwyneth Paltrow. The complaint alleges that a specific GOOP branded candle sometimes explodes during normal use.
The complaint, filed in California, claims that the $75.00 candle was burned for three hours or less before it caught on fire with high flames. The complaint further alleges that consumers have had multiple similar experiences and that GOOP has not initiated a product recall. The suit also states the candle is still available on the company website.
The case is Colby Watson et al. v. Goop Inc., Case No. 2:21-cv-04113, I the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.
