At A Glance

This Alert Affects:
Anyone who purchased certain Band-Aid products that may contain toxic “forever chemicals.”
What’s Going On?
Attorneys are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed against Johnson & Johnson after lab testing commissioned by a consumer watchdog group indicated that some of its Band-Aid products likely contained per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), which have been linked to various health problems.
Which Band-Aid Products Are Under Investigation?
Band-Aid Flexible Fabric Comfortable Protection Bandages, Band-Aid Water Block Tough-Strips Waterproof Adhesive Bandages, and all three varieties of Band-Aid OURTONE Flexible Fabric Bandages.
How Could a Lawsuit Help?
A class action lawsuit could help consumers get back some of the money they spent on the bandages and potentially force Johnson & Johnson to remove PFAS from its Band-Aid products or change how they’re advertised.
