Do you buy Relaxium Sleep supplements or hair repair products from Amika, It's a 10, Alterna or Aveda? Is your Whirlpool, KitchenAid or Maytag dishwasher leaking? If so, then this issue is for you. Three new investigations have been launched into these products (details below), and attorneys need your help in determining whether class actions can be filed.
We’ll also take a look at a recently filed case involving Huggies diapers and the serious injuries some parents have reported. Keep reading for the latest in class action news, including some new settlements you may be able to claim.
There are plenty of products out there that are advertised as being able to “repair” damaged hair, but do they actually live up to their claims? Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating whether certain hair repair products sold under the Amika, It's a 10, Alterna and Aveda brands are falsely advertised, and if this is the case, whether lawsuits can be filed to help customers get their money back. The attorneys have reason to suspect that the products under investigation are incapable of repairing damaged hair as advertised and, at best, only make hair appear healthier. Head over to our dedicated page for a list of the products being investigated. If you bought any of the hair repair products mentioned, your experience may be able to help get a class action lawsuit filed.
A good night’s sleep can be hard to come by for plenty of reasons, and many of us will do whatever we can to feel even somewhat rested come morning. A sleep supplement may seem like a simple fix for those otherwise restless nights, but in the case of Relaxium, the product’s label may not tell the whole story. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether the sleep supplement’s label contains unauthorized health claims – and lawsuits could be filed as a result. The claims in question are the exact reason someone might choose the product in the first place – for instance, that Relaxium Sleep can help users “fall asleep faster,” “sleep longer without interruption,” “wake refreshed & alert” and “improve concentration.” A successful lawsuit could help Relaxium customers get some of their money back and potentially force the manufacturer to change how the supplement is advertised and labeled.

If your Whirlpool, KitchenAid or Maytag dishwasher has been leaking, it may be due to a problem with the heating element. Now, attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating whether a defect is to blame and whether a lawsuit can be filed. The dishwashers in question haven’t been recalled, but you may have received a vague letter from Whirlpool about a “free upgrade” to help prevent leaks. The attorneys believe, however, that the letters don’t convey the urgency of the problem, which could cause property damage, and are unlikely to spur consumers into action. If filed and successful, a lawsuit could provide a true fix for the issue. For information on your legal rights and which dishwashers are affected, head over to this page.
Kimberly-Clark markets Huggies as safe for infants – as all baby products should be – and says the diapers are “made without harsh ingredients” and provide “gentle skin protection.” But now, a proposed class action is alleging that these claims are false and deceptive. According to the suit, each variety of Huggies diapers is liable to cause skin injuries severe enough to require medical care and weeks of recovery time. In fact, one plaintiff says she took her infant to the doctor, who asked, due to the severity of the injuries, whether the child had been cleaned with household cleaners. The suit says the issue stems from Kimberly-Clark’s failure to control how much of a particular skin-irritating chemical is used during the manufacturing process. Want more?
