Maximum Strength Selsun Blue Anti-dandruff Shampoo Causes Scalp Irritation and Hair Loss, Maker Fails To Disclose This To Consumers – Class Action
Are you a fan of Maximum Strenght Selsun Blue antidandruff shampoo? Or are you just a casual user of the product?
Nevertheless, the maker behind the product is challenged with a class action lawsuit after allegedly failing to disclose that Maximum Strength Selsun Blue anti-dandruff shampoo contained ingredients that are said to cause scalp irritation and hair loss.
Filed in the United States District Court Northern District of Illinois, Sanofi-Aventis U.S., LLC is accused of misleading customers through its product’s beneficial claims but leaving out the fact that it contains known harmful chemicals in its ingredients.
Per the complaint filed, Maximum Strength Selsun Blue anti-dandruff shampoo contains selenium sulfide and DMDM hydantoin, which are documented to cause irritation to a person’s scalp and even lead to hair loss.
It continues that defendant Sanofi-Aventis U.S., LLC has capitalized on the market for anti-dandruff products by marketing its Maximum Strength Selsun Blue anti-dandruff shampoo product as such, but it deliberately left out information about the ingredients that it has.
Several complaints have been shared on different platforms online, which would have caught the attention of the company about its product, yet it still failed to include warnings and other additional labels on its product.
Continuing on with their complaint, the plaintiff, Illinois native Emily Lewis, contends that Sanofi-Aventis’ misrepresentations have led the everyday consumer to avail its Maximum Strength Selsun Blue anti-dandruff shampoo, even paying more for it, without being informed of the “undisclosed risk of harm” that came with some of its ingredients.
Lewis details that she bought a Maximum Strength Selsun Blue anti-dandruff shampoo bottle believing that it would somewhat provide relief to her dandruff issues.
Yet, she only experienced scalp irritation and dry hair. This eventually led to “significant hair loss,” as she details further on. The symptoms stopped once she quit using the shampoo.
Lewis is seeking to form a Nationwide Class aiming to represent customers who have bought Sanofi-Aventis’ Maximum Strenght Selsun Blue antidandruff shampoo under the currently prescribed statute of limitations period.
In addition, the plaintiff is also eyeing to create an Illinois subclass for those who are from The Prairie State who bought the antidandruff shampoo product within the last three years.
