Thinx and Knix Class Action

The claim alleges that consumers were misled by the brands’ marketing claims about their period underwear being PFAS-free.

PFAS are sometimes used to enhance the performance of textiles and apparel, for example to make them water repellant and/or stain resistant.

About the Class Action / Mass Tort and Compensation

Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (“PFAS”) are long lasting chemicals, which break down very slowly over time. This is why they are often referred to as “forever chemicals”. Some studies show high levels of PFAS in the blood have been associated with a variety of negative and harmful health effects, including increased risk of some cancers, pregnancy complications, impaired immune function and high cholesterol.

Despite claims that period underwear manufactured by both brands’ do not contain PFAS, testing by a third party lab in the U.S. indicates that there may be the presence of PFAS in these products.

Frequently Asked Questions

A class action is a lawsuit which provides a method for a large group of people with common claims to come together to advance one claim on behalf of the group. Class actions are more efficient and cost-effective and allow for groups of people with common claims to gain access to the legal system and seek justice on their behalf.

A certification motion is where the court determines whether an action can be pursued as a class action. The court considers factors such as whether the claims of the class members raise common legal and/or factual issues and whether a class action is the preferable method of pursuing the claims (as opposed to individual actions).
