Johnson & Johnson is facing more than 1,000 lawsuits accusing them of negligence for failing to warn consumers about the risks of developing cancer after using talc powder. Thousands of women have used Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder, and Shower to Shower Powder on their genitals and hundreds have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer linked to the talc powders. There are thousands of potential cases being reviewed around the country linking talc to cancer. The lawsuits that have been filed accuse Johnson & Johnson to have known about the cancer risks from talc powders and failing to warn individuals of such risks.
Recently, there have been two verdicts awarding plaintiffs with millions of dollars after St. Louis jury members agreed that Johnson & Johnson was negligent in warning consumers of the cancer risks. The most recent verdict was in the amount of $72 million and in February a jury awarded $72 million to a family that lost their mother to ovarian cancer after using J & J talc-based powders. Johnson & Johnson is a huge corporation, and if you or a loved one have received a cancer diagnosis after using talc powders, you cannot fight them alone.
