It’s not the first time that Old Spice has been hit with a lawsuit over their products leaving chemicals burns and rashes on their customers. Earlier this month, another lawsuit was filed against the deodorant company from users having bad reactions. The lawsuit is seeking more that $5 million in damages.
The original suit came from Rodney Colley, who experienced rashes after only a few uses in his armpits. The court’s papers include fairly graphic photos of this painful reaction. Colley is asking others who have had similar reactions to join the lawsuit.
The issue is that the defendant is concealing the problems arising from their products rather than trying to fix anything. Court papers mention that “the problem is rampant” and that Old Spice will only continue to sell the product and reap “windfall profits”. In a very technologically advanced world, the lawsuit even includes pictures that were posted on the internet of others’ who had negative reactions.
A representative from the company noted that a “number of men may experience irritation due to alcohol sensitivity”, which is a common ingredient in many deodorant products, proving once again that you should always read the ingredients before buying the product.
