Metropolitan Water District of SoCal Sued for Illegal Use of an Unapproved Drug to Fulfill Fluoridation Program

On August 9, 2011, California Attorneys at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik filed a lawsuit on behalf of Southern California citizens against the Metropolitan Water District of SoCal, alleging MWD selected and delivered a hydrofluosilicic acid drug through their water that was never approved for safety and effectiveness.

While some consumers may elect to purchase bottled water for drinking, virtually all consumers are captive to exposures from baths and showers, as simple filtration and most non-commercial methods do not remove the product, resulting in exposures to consumers similar to those medications delivered by seasickness or nicotine patches.
More information about this lawsuit will be posted here in the coming months.
