Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral found in rock and soil. It can be lethal when it enters the human body, causing lung cancer, mesothelioma, stomach cancer and many other diseases.
Asbestos-based talcum powder has been linked to ovarian cancer in women.
Johnson & Johnson (J&J) has a long history with Asbestos. The earliest reports of asbestos in J&J talc products date back to 1957-1958. Many victims have been exposed to asbestos through J&J baby powder.
J&J Ignored Positive Asbestos Tests For Decades
In 2019, J&J recalled 33,000 bottles of its talc-based baby powder from U.S. shelves after the FDA found asbestos in samples taken from a bottle purchased online.
Additionally, internal company records show J&J powders tested positive for asbestos at times between 1971 and the early 2000s.
J&J finally announced that they would stop selling talc-based products globally starting in 2023.
Johnson & Johnson continues to deny the allegations regarding asbestos in their products. They attribute their decision to stop selling talc-based baby powder to decreases in demand caused by what they call "misinformation" about their product's safety.
