... alleging injuries caused by her use of Fixodent
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 26, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Melba Mertz and people who suffer from Denture Cream adverse events. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on April 24th, 2012, Lewistown, Pa. resident Melba Mertz, filed a mass tort claim at Philadelphia’s Common Pleas Court (case no. 120402834) alleging neurological injuries caused by her use of Fixodent. Fixodent is a denture adhesive cream manufactured by Procter & Gamble. In the lawsuit Mertz claims she used Fixodent from approximately 1981 to 2008. Plaintiff seeks relief as set forth in the master denture adhesive cream litigation at Philadelphia’s Common Pleas Court.
According to May 2011 report by Bloomberg News, sources said GlaxoSmithKline has settled more than 100 denture cream lawsuits, at an average cost of just over $1 million per case, to resolve claims brought by consumers who suffered permanent nerve damage due to zinc in the adhesive products.

In the April 1st, 2011 issue of General Dentistry, a study conducted by the University of Maryland was published revealing that excessive use of zinc-based denture adhesive cream may cause neurological damage and other problems from zinc poisoning.
