The owner of Brushes4Less received a suspension notice for the toothbrush head replacement just before Amazon (AMZN) - Get Report Prime Day, CNBC reported.

The item is the company's best-selling product on the site, but was delisted because of an intellectual property violation.

Brushes4Less claims it lost about $200,000 in sales while the issue was being resolved.

"Due to the complainant's failure to respond to our attorney's attempts at contact (or even confirm receipt), we believe these complaints are baseless and were filed in bad faith" Brushes4Less.

"Fraud is prohibited on Amazon.com. If we discover that bad actors have abused our systems, we work quickly to take action on behalf of our customers, which includes sellers." Amazon told CNBC.
