Smith & Stallworth Holds Johnson & Johnson Responsible for Their Talcum Powder
Also known as talc powder or baby powder, talcum powder has been linked to ovarian cancer since 1971. Companies like Johnson & Johnson knew about this risk as early as 1982 but failed to warn consumers. In fact, J&J aggressively marketed its talc-based products to women, particularly women of color, according to exposes from Reuters and The New York Times.
Women who used talcum powder were 33% more likely to develop ovarian cancer, and J&J did nothing. Now, these women – and their bereaved family members – are holding the company accountable with an ongoing series of mass torts.
Johnson & Johnson recently removed its talc-based products from shelves in the United States, but litigation is ongoing. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using talcum powder, ask us about joining a mass tort today.
