99 and 44/100% Pure…or Not

First Marilyn Chambers, now this.
Public health and environmental advocates faced off against household cleaning giants Procter & Gamble, <a href="http://www.colgate.com/app/Colgate/US/HomePage.cvsp”>Colgate-Palmolive, Church and Dwight and Reckitt-Benckiser in a fight for transparency about the toxic chemicals in cleaning products.
The specific brands targeted in the lawsuit are familiar names and include such popular items as Lysol, Tom’s of Maine, Ivory and Oxiclean, to name a few.
The lawsuit filed in the New York State Supreme Court alleges that these specific manufacturers do not disclose information about the chemicals in their
products and the health risks they pose, as they are required to do under New York regulations.
The first-of-its-kind lawsuit could have national implications and comes as momentum builds nationally and internationally for toxics chemical reform.
