If you used Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Gel, Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs and/or Zicam Cold Remedy Swabs, Kids Size and suffered a loss of sense of smell or taste, contact a lawyer!
A team of class action attorneys and personal injury lawyers has launched an investigation into Zicam, the popular over-the-counter intranasal cold medication sold by Matrixx Initiatives, which has been linked to long-lasting or permanent loss of smell known as anosmia, even after just a single use.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration in June 2009 issued a warning letter and advised consumers to stop using Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Gel, Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs and Zicam Cold Remedy Swabs, Kids Size because these products may pose a serious risk to consumers who use them.
These Zicam products contain zinc (the listed active ingredient is Zincum Gluconicum 2X), which some experts say can be toxic to nerve receptors in the nose. Loss of sense of smell can decrease a persons quality of life, hinder their ability to identify hazardous smells such as smoke, gas or odor from spoiled food and can lead to loss of sense of taste.
If you or your loved ones have ever taken Zicam, and have suffered a loss of sense of smell or taste potentially associated with the use of Zicam, you may be entitled to money.**
**If you have used Zicam and suffer from any of the Zicam side effects, we urge you to promptly consult your doctor or physician for an evaluation.
