Approximately 200 people have filed lawsuits against Home Depot and the manufacturer of Stand ‘n Seal grout sealer after falling ill from using Stand ‘n Seal. People are complaining of severe breathing problems after using the grout sealer, including chemical pneumonia. One man, Dr. Walter Friedel, said he became so ill he was in the intensive care unit for 4 days and was on oxygen for 4 months. He still has difficulty walking up flights of stairs and hills.
Dr. Friedel did not know at the time he purchased the product that it had actually been recalled 2 months earlier. Even with the recall, Home Depot still had the product on its shelves.
If you or someone you know became ill after using Stand ‘n Seal grout cleaner, contact an attorney immediately. You may be able to recover for the medical problems resulting from the use of the grout cleaner.
