BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A Beverly man is suing Stop & Shop, accusing them of selling "flushable" baby wipes that are not really flushable. Mark Schotte of Beverly says he and others wouldn't have bought the wipes, or wouldn't have paid as much for them, if he knew they weren't flushable.

Schotte argues that "flushable" products generally dissolve in water, and that these wipes don't.

"The mislabeling of the Wipes renders the products completely worthless. There is no value to consumers for purportedly 'flushable' wipes that are not actually flushable," the suit reads. The suit never says if Schotte was actually damaged by using the wipes.

It also says Stop & Shop sells the flushable wipes for more money, which the suit calls a "double whammy." Schotte and the rest of the class are asking for more than $5,000,000 in damages.

When reached for comment, Stop & Shop told WBZ NewsRadio that the company "does not comment on active litigation."
