ezpz's Response to Knock-offs
ezpz is the creator of the FIRST all-in-one placemat + plate that suctions to the surface, and we have intellectual property filed and registered throughout the world. Unfortunately, our unique quality products have caught the attention of knock-off scammers worldwide. As we continue to grow, the challenge of preventing fake ezpz products increases.
ezpz works hard to maintain the highest and most rigorous standards for safety, non-toxic materials and quality. All ezpz products are made from 100% silicone that is BPA, BPS, PVC, latex and phthalate free. Our products are also third-party quality tested, specifically FDA-approved and CPSC-certified (see ‘Testing & Compliance’ below).
If you don't see the ezpz brand name, the product is sourced from another manufacturer. This manufacturer may not be compliant with regulatory requirements and may be infringing upon our intellectual property rights. Note – ezpz only sells on amazon in the U.S. (not internationally, with exception to amazon.ca).
Of course, the knock-off issue applies to many of the products you shop for every day! Below we have provided a few tips to shop smarter:
1. If possible, go DIRECT to the retailer and/or product site using https://.
2. Avoid suspicious and poorly designed websites, websites that offer urgent deals (e.g., 5 units left at this price!) or deals too good to be true.
3. Check out the company’s ‘about us’ and ‘contact us’ pages and/or social media links.
Our community has helped us uncover numerous fakes. If you come across a site that seems fake, please send details to email@example.com. By fighting false products we keep our children safe and our business healthy. Thank you for your support!
