Wright & Schulte LLC Represents Clients In Just For Men Class Action Lawsuit Alleging The Hair Dye Causes Sores, Facial Swelling, And Other Skin Reactions.
Richard Schulte, co-founder of Wright & Schulte LLC, is serving as co-council in a second proposed Just For Men class-action lawsuit filed. The second Just For Men class-action lawsuits was filed on on behalf of all consumers in the state of Missouri. The Just For Men lawsuits are being filed by men nationwide who suffered chemical burns, blisters, infections, weeping sores, facial scarring and other serious injuries, some that require hospitalization, from the popular men’s hair and beard dye product.
The latest Just For Men class-action lawsuit claims were filed against Combe Inc., Combe International and its affiliate companies in February in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Missouri on behalf of two Missouri men who are seeking to represent all consumers in the state who purchased the permanent hair dye product. The lawsuit contends, among other things, the defendants failed to properly warn consumers on the product labels, inserts or marketing materials that Just For Men products contain p-Phenylenediamine (PPD), a chemical that the Environmental Protection Agency has linked to severe dermatitis, renal failure, vitiligo, convulsions, comas, and other health conditions. The complaint asks the court to require the defendants “to pay or create a pool of money” to “fund plaintiffs and the class’ ongoing diagnostic testing necessary to determine whether the common exposure to Just For Men products has caused or is in the process of causing sensitization to PPD and other related chemicals.” (Just For Men Case No. 4:16-cv-00220)
Richard Schulte is also co-counsel on another proposed Just For Men class-action lawsuit filed in January in Missouri’s Eastern District court. This complaint contends Combe, Inc. and its affiliates failed to warn about the health risks and hid information on the effectiveness and safety of Just For Men products. The lawsuit also accuses the defendants of violating Missouri’s Merchandising Practices Act through their “unfair and/or deceptive conduct.” (Case No. 4:16-cv-0097)
Just For Men permanent hair dye products have been on the market since 1987 and used by men who want to cover the gray in their hair, mustache and beard. The products have been promoted by celebrities including basketball hall of famer, Walt Frazier and ex-baseball star, Keith Hernandez. The ConsumerAffairs watchdog group have received complaints from men who say they suffered numerous allergic reactions such as weeping sores, severe itching, scarring, skin blisters and severe chemical burns on their skin after using Just For Men products. Men who began experiencing problems after using Just For Men for years questioned whether there was a recent change in ingredients that prompted the allergic reactions.
