Johnson // Becker, PLLC Files Lawsuits Against Ecolab For Injuries Resulting From OxyCide

The lawsuits allege that Ecolab’s disinfectant OxyCide is the cause of various hospital employee’s injuries.

Johnson // Becker, PLLC is a nationwide plaintiff’s law firm with experience representing injured men and women in lawsuits against pharmaceutical and medical device companies and chemical manufacturers, i.e. toxic torts.

Our lawyers represent several individuals who allege they have suffered injuries after the use of OxyCide Daily Disinfectant Cleaner. Furthermore, they allege Ecolab failed to properly warn users about the substantial health problems associated with the use of their product, OxyCide.

In one of the OxyCide lawsuits, it alleges that testing of chemical compounds in OxyCide Cleaning Products reveals the presence of dangerous chemicals and compounds that are known to cause adverse health effects. Specifically, these tests revealed the presence of peracetic acid (also known as peroxyacetic acid, referred to hereinafter as “PAA”), a known asthmagen (asthma causing substance) and respiratory sensitizer (causing immune responses and adverse respiratory effects, even at low levels of exposure).

Furthermore, despite advance notices of complications arising from OxyCide Cleaning Products nationwide, Ecolab refused to take affirmative action to analyze, test, study, and/or recall their products. Instead, Ecolab, despite advance notice of adverse health issues from OxyCide, continues to distribute OxyCide to hospitals nationwide.

The following cases were filed in the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota in early April:

Ecolab, Inc. is headquartered in St. Paul, Minnesota. The plaintiffs in all of the OxyCide lawsuits allege that the company has never provided sufficient warnings of the risks with use of both the OxyCide Daily Disinfectant Cleaner and the OxyCide Dilution Management System.

Timothy J. Becker and Jacob Rusch of Johnson // Becker are counsel of record, along with Richard D. McCune and Michele M. Vercoski of McCune Wright Arevalo.
