Uh oh. Look’s like Victoria has been keeping something else a secret. Women have been coming down with blistering rashes and sever itching as a result of some of the Victoria’s Secret bras! Recently, a woman in Ohio filed a lawsuit after discovering that there was formaldehyde–an embalming chemical–in her bras. The bras that she ended up purchasing were the Angels Secret Embrace and Very Sexy Extreme Me Push up bras.
The lawsuit has been filed, but court approval of the class action has yet to take place. There have been several other women who have come forward with similar complaints. According to the ABC News, Victoria’s Secret has claimed that they do not use formaldehyde in their bras.
So how did that noxious chemical get into these bras? More than likely, somewhere in the manufacturing process when products are exposed to dangerous chemicals.
Consumers rarely have protection from these types of injuries. It is super important for government regulation agencies to get involved in the manufacturing processes to prevent this sort of thing from happening.
If you have been injured by one of these bras, make sure that you contact a personal injury attorney to be informed of your rights as a consumer. Simply fill out the free case evaluation form to the right of this blog post, and someone will review your case shortly.
