What is the Knix Underwear PFAS Settlement About?
A $1,400,000 Class Action Settlement has been reached with Knix over allegations that some of its period underwear and swimwear products for adults and teens contained a potentially harmful substance known as PFAS. Knix Underwear denies the allegations made in the PFAS class action lawsuit, and has stated that PFAS had never been part of the design of its products. It is important to note that although Knix has agreed to settle the $1.4 Million settlement, they have not admitted to any wrongdoing. Thinx underwear also recently settled an even larger $5 Million class action lawsuit over similar allegations.
PFAS, also known as Per- and Poly-fluoroalkyl Substances, are synthetic chemicals that have been shown in peer-reviewed studies to have health effects on people. There are many types of PFAS, and there are many nuances to PFAS effects on health, most importantly the level of exposure. The EPA reported that many Americans have had exposure to PFAS, but at relatively low concentrations. Some of the potential health effects include:
• Reproductive health effects,
• Increased blood pressure in pregnant women,
• Decreased fertility,
• Low birth weight in children,
• Development delays in children,
• Accelerated puberty phases,
• Variations in bones,
• Increased risk of prostate, kidney, and testicular cancers,
• Reduce immune response, so reduced ability to battle infections,
• Reduced vaccine response,
• Interference with the body's natural hormone processes,
• Increased cholesterol levels,
• Increased risk of obesity.
