Johnson & Johnson Pulls Talc Baby Powder Off Market Amid Lawsuits
Johnson & Johnson announced that it is discontinuing the manufacturing and sale of its talcum-powder based Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products after over 19,000 lawsuits have been filed by women who claim these products caused ovarian cancer. Juries have ordered the manufacturer to pay hundreds of millions of dollars in damages to women who were diagnosed with ovarian cancer after long-term use of Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products for feminine hygiene. In 2018, a Missouri jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $4.7 billion to 22 women with ovarian cancer.
