At A Glance

This Alert Affects:
Anyone who purchased Tom’s of Maine’s Whole Care Peppermint, Luminous White Clean Mint or Kids’ Toothpaste products.
What’s Going On?
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating whether these toothpastes contain toxic PFAS chemicals and, if so, whether a class action lawsuit can be filed on behalf of consumers.
What Are PFAS?
PFAS refers to a group of chemicals known as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances and are often referred to as “forever chemicals” due to their inability to break down in the environment and tendency to accumulate in the human body. Exposure to PFAS has been linked to certain types of cancer, decreased vaccine response in children and high cholesterol.
How Could a Class Action Lawsuit Help?
A class action lawsuit has the potential to give consumers a chance to get their money back and could force the manufacturer to change its advertising.
