The recent lawsuit against TRESemmé is beginning to shine the spotlight on other haircare products containing DMDM hydantoin, the preservative believed to be the cause of hair loss and scalp irritation in users. Over here at ClassAction.org, a new investigation has been opened into several popular shampoos that may be causing some unexpected side effects – but more on that below. Also included in this issue is an investigation into the levels of heavy metals in certain baby food products, a look at complaints from Nissan Rogue drivers over failing CVTs and a new lawsuit that takes issue with streaming outages affecting NFL’s Game Pass. Keep reading for the latest in our little corner of the internet.
If you’ve been on our site over the past month or so, you probably know about the lawsuit claiming that certain TRESemmé shampoos can cause hair loss and scalp irritation. Well, that suit has brought more haircare products to the attention of attorneys working with ClassAction.org – and their new investigation poses the question of whether other products are causing similar problems because of a shared ingredient, namely DMDM hydantoin. The preservative works by releasing small amounts of formaldehyde and has been credited with causing the harmful side effects outlined in the TRESemmé case. Several brands are now under investigation for their use of DMDM hydantoin, including OGX, Paul Mitchell and It’s A 10. So, for a closer look at the investigation and the specific products being looked into, head over to this page. You may be able to help get additional lawsuits filed.
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org would like to speak to people who purchased certain Happy Baby/Happy Family baby food products made by Nurture, Inc. Reports have surfaced that some of the company’s puffs, rice cakes, cereals and teethers contain excessive levels of toxic heavy metals. Arsenic and lead are the last things we need in the food we give our kids, but a recent report released by a congressional subcommittee suggests this is more common than we think. Heavy metals, even in low levels, have been linked to cognitive and behavioral problems and can be particularly dangerous for infants and children due to their neurotoxic effects. So, if you purchased baby food made by Nurture, Inc., attorneys need your help to take action. Learn more about the report, the ongoing investigation and what you can do right here.

This settlement aims to cover those who went to an Arizona hospital that was in their insurance network, but who were billed for services provided by an out-of-network anesthesiologist between April 15, 2017 and July 27, 2020.
If you’ve experienced shuddering, difficulty accelerating, or a loud clunking or knocking noise with your Nissan Rogue, you’re not the only one. A slew of complaints from drivers has prompted attorneys to investigate whether a defect is causing Rogue CVTs (continuously variable transmissions) to fail prematurely – and whether lawsuits can be filed because of it. So far, consumers are saying that when the CVTs in these vehicles begin to fail, the problem can manifest in many ways, some of which could increase the risk of an accident and lead to big repair bills. It isn’t all bad news though. Nissan recently settled a lawsuit that made similar claims about Sentra, Versa and Note vehicles – and that settlement offered reimbursement for out-of-pocket repair and replacement costs. Could there be a similar outcome for Rogue drivers? Well, first a lawsuit needs to be filed, and the attorneys we work with want to speak with people who had issues with their CVTs to help make that happen. So, if this sounds all too familiar, check out this page and share your story with us.
We recently wrapped up another NFL season and Tom Brady now has one more ring to polish – but a few days before the Super Bowl took place, the National Football League was hit with a lawsuit over allegedly widespread streaming issues that plagued last year’s big game. The lawsuit claims that because of issues with the stream, Game Pass subscribers missed crucial moments of the game between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs. According to the complaint, the NFL hasn’t apologized for the problems – let alone offer full refunds to any of the hundreds of thousands of subscribers who tuned in from nearly 181 countries. The case looks to cover anyone who bought Game Pass from the NFL and NFL Enterprises, LLC for the 2019 to 2020 NFL season – but we’ll have to wait and see how this one plays out. For now, you can read up on the case here.
