LOS ANGELES (CN) – Tagless labels on T-shirts and children’s wear contain harmful skin irritants, a class action claims in Federal Court. Lindsey Webb sued only Carter’s, but claims the irritating chemicals are in heat-transferred labels that are sold by and through major retailers, including Carter’s, Oshkosh and Babies R Us.
Webb says the irritating labels are in clothing and towels specifically meant for babies. She demands more than $5 million in damages for the class.
Lead counsel is Robert Jigarjian of San Anselmo and Whatley Drake and Kallas of New York, N.Y.
