An Illinois federal court has reportedly approved a $10.25-million settlement agreement between Unilever PLC and a class of consumers who alleged that one of Unilever’s Suave hair products caused hair loss. Reid v. Unilever U.S., No. 12-6058 (U.S. Dist. Ct., N.D. Ill., order entered July 9, 2014). The lawsuit alleged that Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion 30-Day Smoothing Kit, which sold in the United States for about five months in 2012, contained a dangerous chemical that caused scalp damage and hair loss, apparently leading to consumer injuries. The settlement—including a $10-million fund to cover injury claims and $250,000 to reimburse purchasers—was approved by the court despite objections that some of the injuries were potentially more severe than the $25,000 cap on injury awards.
