According to the news source, Proctor & Gamble's Fixodent is not the only denture adhesive to have been the subject of a zinc- poisoning lawsuit, as the attorney also previously filed a complaint against GlaxoSmithKline, the makers of SuperPoligrip.
The attorney told the news source that he hopes the latest action taken against Proctor & Gamble will prevent the inclusion of zinc in Fixodent in the future.
According to ABC News, the potential link between zinc poisoning and denture adhesives was first discovered by researchers at the University of Texas approximately five years ago.
