Victims blame Johnson & Johnson for failing to warn users about health risks

A recent report by NBC News examined the possible links between using Baby Powder, Shower to Shower, and other talcum-based products sold by pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson (J&J) and developing ovarian cancer. While J&J claims its talcum powder products pose an insignificant risk to female consumers, the NBC News story reported on J&J’s disregard for science linking talcum powder to deadly cancers.

$300 million in awards for talcum powder ovarian cancer victims

Juries across the country have handed down substantial verdicts in favor of plaintiffs allegedly harmed by J&J talcum powder products like Baby Powder and Shower to Shower. The plaintiffs’ lawsuits alleged Johnson & Johnson knew for decades about the links between using talcum-based products and an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer but failed to put any sort of warnings on the label to let women make the best decision about their health.

Lawyers for the plaintiffs claim to have uncovered internal company documents showing talc suppliers marked the power as possibly carcinogenic, a designation shared by the United Nations World Health Organization. While Johnson & Johnson claims its products pose only a minor threat to women, several juries have rejected that compensated victims appropriately.
