Midwest man sues Wal-Mart and makers of Brut deodorant and lotion

A Midwest man has filed a personal injury lawsuit against the makers of Brut and the Wal-Mart from which he bought the Brut deodorant and lotion after he was burned on thirty percent of his body. The 81 year old man was camping with his family. After washing and shaving in a bathhouse in the morning, the man put on Brut lotion on his face, neck, and hands. He also sprayed on Brut deodorant. The man then went to start cooking breakfast in a campground fire pit. It was at that time, while attempting to start the campfire, that the man’s face, neck, and chest burst into flames. The lawsuit claims that the products were defective because they were unreasonably dangerous. “Our view is there is no warning that after you apply it, you remain flammable for some period of time,” said the man’s attorney. “You aren’t thinking, ‘I’m still flammable.”‘
