Talcum Powder

Talcum Powder

When Johnson & Johnson began selling its baby powder over a century ago, it marketed its talcum powder as a product so safe that it could be used to soothe an infant’s sore skin or reduce genital odor. Talcum powder’s properties make it easy to absorb wetness and reduce chafing, but they also can increase cancer risks when the powder is applied to the genitals.

Although substantial anecdotal evidence has linked talcum usage to ovarian cancer and mesothelioma, only recently have scientific studies supported this claim. Plaintiffs across the country have filed lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson alleging that the company knew about the hazards associated with its talcum product and failed to warn about these risks or pull it from the market.

In 2013, a federal jury sided against the Johnson & Johnson, supporting the plaintiff’s argument that the talcum powder contained in some of Johnson & Johnson’s baby powders can raise the risk of ovarian cancer.

If you, or someone you know, has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and have been frequent users of talcum powder, call our attorneys today.
