Benzene Claims Against Procter & Gamble Co.
A lawsuit was recently filed against the massive consumer goods corporation Procter & Gamble, Co. on behalf of consumers who purchased Old Spice and Secret antiperspirant spray products that potentially contain the harmful chemical Benzene.
According to the lawsuit, an independent laboratory, Valisure, identified elevated levels of benzene in P&G’s product. There are no “safe” levels of benzene, according to consumer advocate groups, so this development is concerning for all who have purchased and used the company’s aerosol antiperspirants.
What is Benzene?
Benzene is a petroleum-based chemical that is used in many commonly found industrial products. It is either colorless or slightly yellow in color when kept at room temperature and has a sweet odor similar to gasoline.
Benzene is commonly found in:
- Diesel fuel
- Paints and lacquers
- Industrial solvents
Benzene poisoning can occur if it is inhaled, swallowed, or if it comes in contact with the skin.
How Will I Know If I’ve been Exposed to Benzene?
Some common symptoms of benzene exposure include:
- Rapid heart rate
- Tightness in the chest
- Pale skin or bumps on the skin
- Stomach pain or irritation
Individuals exposed to benzene have reportedly developed serious medical conditions including cancer, anemia, and more. Long-term exposure to the chemical can affect the blood in significant ways. This includes the bone marrow and a decrease in red blood cells, leading to anemia. Individuals might also experience excessive bleeding and a weakened immune system, leading to increased risk of infection.
In the worst-case scenarios, exposure to benzene could prove to be fatal. If you believe that you’ve been exposed to benzene through an aerosol antiperspirant or in another manner, make sure to seek medical treatment right away.
