Toxic Products? aden + anais, Sun Bum and SNS Nails
Our first three investigations concern products that were potentially made with harmful chemicals – baby products from aden + anais, Sun Bum suncare products and dip powder from SNS Nails. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether lawsuits can be filed to change the way these products are manufactured and marketed and to get consumers some money back.
The attorneys are also looking into whether a class action can be filed following a recall involving the side-curtain airbags in certain Ford Maverick vehicles. Keep reading for these stories, as well as the latest class action settlements you may be able to claim.
We should be able to buy baby clothes and products without fear that they were manufactured with potentially toxic ingredients. Now, attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating whether certain aden + anais products contain harmful chemicals known as PFAS (or “forever chemicals”) and whether a class action can be filed as a result. While PFAS have plenty of useful properties (like making baby products waterproof and stain resistant), studies have found that these chemicals have been linked to lower vaccine effectiveness and suppressed immune function – which can be particularly concerning for parents and caregivers. A lawsuit, if filed and successful, could allow consumers the chance to get back some of the money they spent on these products and potentially force the manufacturer to change the way it makes or advertises them. Head over to this page to learn more and find out which products are under investigation.
Continuing with the unfortunate theme of toxic ingredients, several Sun Bum sunscreen and after-sun products were found to contain benzene, a chemical known to cause cancer and other health problems. In May 2021, independent laboratory Valisure recommended that three Sun Bum products – a lotion sunscreen, an after-sun gel and an after-sun aloe vera spray – be recalled due to the presence of the chemical. Now, attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed on behalf of those who bought the Sun Bum products. A successful lawsuit could help customers get some money back and potentially force the company to change its manufacturing practices. Check out this page for a list of potentially affected products and information on how you may be able to help get a lawsuit started.

An investigation has been launched into whether SNS Nails’ dip powder products – which are advertised as “natural,” “healthy” and “non-toxic” – contain toxic chemicals, one of which is a potential cancer risk. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org believe that a company whose motto is “Healthy. Natural. Nails.” should not be including synthetic and toxic chemicals in its products – and a class action may be able to force the company to change its practices. On top of potentially forcing the manufacturer to change how the products are made or advertised, a successful lawsuit could help SNS Nails customers get back some of the money they spent on the dip powders.

Attorneys working with ClassAction.org would like to speak with anyone who owns or leases a Ford Maverick pickup truck that was subject to a recent August 2022 airbag recall. They’re investigating whether a class action lawsuit can be filed on behalf of nearly 65,000 Maverick truck drivers after the vehicles were recalled over concerns that the side-curtain airbags may not deploy properly, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash. While the automaker has promised to fix the problem, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that a remedy will not be available until January 2023 – forcing owners to choose between driving an unsafe vehicle or going months without the use of their brand-new trucks. A successful lawsuit could hold Ford accountable for selling a car that’s a safety risk and compensate drivers for the inconvenience of owning these vehicles. If you own or lease a 2022 Ford Maverick affected by the side-curtain airbag recall, learn more about your rights by heading over to this page.
