Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder Lawsuit
Recent lawsuits claim the manufacturers of baby powder failed to warn users of the increased risk of ovarian cancer and mesothelioma when women use these products for personal hygiene. According to the International Journal of Gynecological Cancer, frequent talcum powder use on the female genital area increases the risk of cancer between 30–60%. The more often a woman uses it, the more likely she will experience cancer.
We believe the evidence shows that manufacturers of talcum powder have known for more than 40 years that the powder can cause ovarian cancer and mesothelioma. However, these companies intentionally made the decision not to warn women that the powder could cause cancer by entering the lungs or the vagina after being applied for personal hygiene, and especially after use on the genital area or on sanitary napkins.
If you used talcum powder for feminine hygiene and were later diagnosed with ovarian cancer or mesothelioma, you may be able to hold the manufacturer accountable for putting profits before the lives of their customers by making them pay for the damage their product has caused you and your family.
