Dangerous products seem to be everywhere these days. This is particularly true when it comes to pharmaceuticals and over-the-counter drugs. This week the New York Daily News reported that a Manhattan man has filed suit against the manufacturer of Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Spray that he used from 2006 to 2009. The man claims that as a result of using the product, he has lost both his dense of taste and smell. The lawsuit claims that the manufacturer knew or should have known that studies dating back to 1937 have shown that topical applications containing zinc ions can cause a loss of taste and smell. The lawsuit further claims that the manufacturers representations that the product was safe and effective were false. According to the article, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a public health warning last summer warning consumers to stop using all Zicam nasal products that contained zinc because they had received over 130 reports from people who claimed to have lost their sense of smell and taste after using the product.
