Imitation Sani-Pen Surrendered to Natural Trends
Natural Trends, a leading supplier of hand sanitizer, based out of Provo, Utah, announced a large quantity of patent-violating product has been surrendered to the company by an unnamed industry competitor.
According to Paul Christensen, president of Natural Trends, the product is described as a lesser-grade imitation of the company's popular Sani-Pen-Instant Hand Sanitizer Spray. The product was fabricated in China and imported to the U.S. in violation of design and utility patents held by Natural Trends.
Said Christensen, “As the firm who invented and introduced the first sanitizer spray pen in 2004, we take our patents very seriously, and we are pleased that a swift settlement was reached.” He indicated that all inventory of the inferior grade knockoff has been destroyed.
