Benzene is a chemical that’s found naturally in the environment and in many products. When products have benzene levels that are above the accepted standard, they can put people exposed to them at a higher risk of developing certain types of cancer.
Recently, Unilever United States issued a voluntary product recall of several of its dry shampoo products due to them containing elevated levels of benzene. The brand names with recalled products include Dove, Nexxus, Suave, TIGI, and TRESemmé.
Retailers have already been notified to remove the products from their shelves, and if you or someone you love owns any dry shampoo products from these brand names, stop using them immediately. You can also visit UnileverRecall.com to learn how you may be eligible for a refund for your purchase.
Unfortunately, many people who are harmed by defective products need far more than a simple refund of their purchase. They need compensation for their related medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. However, they may feel helpless when it comes to going up against multi-billion-dollar corporations.
