Temu in Spotlight: Legal Action Considered for Consumer Protection as Concerns Over Safety, Quality, and Marketing Tactics Rise

The Consumer Advice Center is contemplating legal action against Temu.

The consumer advice center is considering legal action against Chinese online marketplace Temu, which has been accused of unsettling and taking advantage of consumers with arbitrary discounts, questionable reviews, and manipulative designs. The platform has failed to provide information on how high discounts are offered and has misled consumers about carbon footprint reduction through delivery to collection points instead of homes.

Temu has also faced criticism for manipulative design tactics, such as creating a sense of urgency to make purchases and for inadequate information about product reviews and providers. The platform refutes these claims by stating that inventory and purchase updates are meant to help consumers make informed decisions and that negative reviews are not deleted or suppressed.

Recently, Temu has gained popularity in the German market with discount offers of up to 90 percent. However, trade experts and associations have called for stricter action against Chinese low-cost marketplaces like Temu, citing concerns about product safety and quality. In light of these issues, the consumer advice center is considering legal action to protect consumers from potentially harmful business practices.

Temu has also been promoting a range of products including THC libido gummies and delta 9 infused lubricants, claiming various benefits for consumers. These products have generated interest and discussions among consumers, highlighting the importance of transparency and accountability in marketing and selling such items.
