New York, New York (PRWEB) November 19, 2011
Jordan L. Chaikin, Esq., a partner in the national law firm of Parker Waichman Alonso LLP, has been appointed to the Plaintiffs' Steering Committee in the Dial Complete Marketing and Sales Litigation, MDL No. 11-md-2263-SM, currently underway in U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampshire. Mr. Chaikin was appointed to the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee by the Honorable Steven J. McAuliffe, who is presiding over the litigation.
The Plaintiffs' Steering Committee will, among other things, conduct and coordinate the discovery stage of the Dial Complete litigation with the Defendants’ representatives or committee. The Committee will also act as a spokesperson for all Plaintiffs at pretrial proceedings and in response to any inquiries by the Court.
Plaintiffs in the Dial Complete lawsuits allege that Dial made unsubstantiated health claims in its promotion of Dial Complete to consumers and further allege that Triclosan, the active antibacterial ingredient in Dial Complete, may lead to bacterial resistance. In an April 8, 2010 “Consumer Update”, the agency stated that it does not have evidence that Triclosan-containing antibacterial soaps and body washes provide any extra health benefit over soap and water alone. Yet despite mounting concerns surrounding Triclosan, Dial has continued to aggressively advertise Dial Complete as having substantial health benefits and being more effective in its use than ordinary soap and water, Plaintiffs allege.
