Baby Powder Talc linked to Ovarian Cancer
You May Be Entitled to Compensation For Damages Resulting From Sustained Use of Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder.
Johnson & Johnson Agrees to Pay $100 Million Dollar Settlement As of October 2020
Nearly 20,000 Women Have Filed Suit.
If you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer or a related condition, you may be entitled to compensation.
Despite maintaining all along that the company’s talcum powder products were safe to use, Johnson & Johnson issued a recall of the company’s baby powder after the Food & Drug Administration detected a type of asbestos in a product sample in October 2019. Asbestos, a naturally occurring mineral, is a known carcinogen.
The number of lawsuits linking talcum powder to ovarian cancer keeps growing. Law firms are pursuing litigation against the industry giant, Johnson & Johnson, and others. Studies show that approximately 2,200 women diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year also used baby power in their genital area regularly.
All of these individuals do not have the gene (BRCA gene) that predisposes someone to ovarian cancer. Biopsies also show talc fibers within the ovarian tumors. The link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer is only a risk for women using talcum powder in the genital area — not for those using talcum powder on other areas of the body. The commonly used Johnson & Johnson “Baby Powder” as well as another product known as “Shower to Shower” are both being linked to ovarian cancer development due to their talc-base.
The baby powder contains talc, as a moisture absorbent, however talc offers no medical value. Those who have been harmed by talcum powder may be eligible for compensation. Contact the law firm if you, or someone you know, might have a claim.
