Johnson & Johnson and Wal-Mart Sued for Selling Toxic Baby Shampoo

"If you purchased Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Shampoo or Wal-Mart brand Equate Tearless Baby Wash, you may want to stop using it. A class action lawsuit has been approved this month that claims these products may contain a toxin linked to cancer."

"The class action lawsuit, filed earlier this year, accuses Johnson & Johnson and Wal-Mart Stores of selling shampoo and baby wash that allegedly contains methylene chloride, an ingredient banned by the FDA in cosmetics because it’s linked to cancer. The law firm that filed the lawsuit is also investigating Target’s Night-time Bath and Body Wash, which is not currently named in the suit."

Fisher PriceRecalls 11 Million Items for Infants and Toddlers

Popular toy brand Fisher-Price is recalling millions of products in both the US and Canada due to safety concerns.
The recall includes approximately 7 million Fisher-Price Trikes and Tough Trikes Toffler tricycles. The products are being recalled following several reports of children being injured.

“A child can strike, sit or fall on the protruding plastic ignition key, resulting in serious injury, including genital bleeding,” the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

The number of products sold in the US is significantly higher than those sold in Canada. The US CPSC said there are about 7 million sold in the US and only 150,000 in Canada.
Other products included in the recall are Fisher-Price’s Little People Wheelies Stand ‘n Play Rampway. There have been no injuries as a result of the defect but two reports of wheels detaching were filed. In addition, the company’s Healthy Care, Easy Clean and Close to Me High Chairs are also being recalled because children can fall on the pegs found on the back legs of the chair.
