Combat Arms Earplugs

Frank Charles Miranda, P.A. Helping the Men and Women Who Bravely Served Our Country

Men and women who were serving in the United States military were provided earplugs that were not long enough for proper insertion into the ears of a user. The length of the earplugs resulted in a fit that would gradually loosen over the course of use and subsequently fail to provide user protection and noise cancellation. Individuals who believed that they were using superior protection gear are now suffering hearing loss.

Combat Arms CAEv2 Earplugs, Version 2 ear plugs were manufactured by Minnesota headquartered 3M Company (3M) and known to be an ineffective method by which to protect members of the military. Still, the company knowingly made the decision to sell the defective earplugs to the military.
