What’s Going On?
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating whether certain tampons, maxi pads and pantiliners contain toxic PFAS chemicals and, if so, whether a class action lawsuit could be filed.
Which Products Are Under Investigation?
Attorneys are specifically looking into the following products: Seventh Generation Free and Clear maxi pads (regular), Seventh Generation Free and Clear pantiliners, Tampax Pure unscented tampons (super), and O.B. organic tampons with plant-based applicator (regular).
What Could I Get from a Class Action Lawsuit?
