A US couple Corey Payne and Kayla Harris have filed a proposed class action lawsuit against Amazon, claiming they sustained eye injuries from solar eclipse glasses purchased on the site.
They experienced headaches and vision impairment after using the glasses to watch the US eclipse on 21 August. Amazon said it issued a recall on potentially hazardous eclipse glasses on 10 August. The couple claimed they were not informed of the recall.
Legal documents filed by the pair say the warning was “tragically too little, too late”.
Amazon has declined to comment on the lawsuit, which was filed in a federal court in South Carolina on Tuesday.
