After tests produced evidence of its baby powder causing infections, The Honest Company recalled the product, according to a report in Fortune.
How Can the Honest Company’s Baby Powder Cause Infections?
The Honest Company, co-founded by actress Jessica Alba, focuses on providing non-toxic household products to consumers. The company’s recall was issued voluntarily after contaminations from microorganisms were found that could possibly cause eye or skin infections. The Honest Company informed the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about the possible contamination and received guidance from the FDA regarding how to properly issue a recall.
The Honest Company’s baby powder is advertised as a natural product that serves as an alternative to traditional brands. Until the recall, the baby powder had been on store shelves since April 2016.
What Can I Do If I Am the Victim of a Defective Product?
When a product that is marketed as being safe and it turns out to be dangerous to consumers, that is unacceptable. For consumers who are injured because of a product defect or the families of the victims of fatal defective product injuries, pursuing product liability and wrongful death claims against the company at fault is often their best option to fight back. Product liability, medical device and pharmaceutical recall and wrongful death lawsuits enable victims and families to hold negligent companies accountable for their pain and suffering, including recovering financial help for hospital bills, lost income, rehabilitation expenses and funeral costs.
