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.
Feds Investigate Claims Linking Talcum Powder Products to Cancer
Johnson & Johnson (J&J) is in the news again for all of the wrong reasons. The pharmaceutical giant has been told by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to hand over documents linked to claims that the company’s talcum powder products have been contaminated with asbestos.
In the summer of 2018, Krystal Kim, a 53-year-old African-American woman, was one of the plaintiffs in a successful lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson (J&J). The jury in that trial awarded $4.69 billion to Kim and 21 others – all of whom are suffering from ovarian cancer or mesothelioma which they believe was caused by extensive use of J&J’s signature product, Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder.
Johnson & Johnson is facing nearly 12,000 lawsuits from individuals who claim their cancers were caused by the company’s powder products. These cases include suits from thousands of women who charge that Johnson & Johnson talcum powder products caused their ovarian cancer.
