Talcum Powder Lawsuits

Call Our Washington DC Medical Malpractice Lawyers: (202) 684-2889

Johnson & Johnson is currently facing litigation over its Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products amidst allegations that it neglected to warn the public of the cancer risks associated with its products. Despite decades of research showing that perineal use of talc-containing powders increases the risk of ovarian cancer, Johnson & Johnson has failed to add warning labels to its products and continues to claim that such products are completely safe. As a result, thousands of women have contracted cancer due to the use of Johnson & Johnson's Baby Powder and Shower to Shower. Numerous juries have taken legal action against the company in court.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and you used talcum powder for feminine hygiene, you may be entitled to substantial compensation.

Does Talc Really Cause Cancer?

When used near the genitals, talc, a natural mineral, can enter the body and become embedded in the tissues of the ovaries. Because this mineral is difficult for the body to remove, particles can accumulate over time and lead to the formation of malignant tumors. At least 20 studies dating as far back as 1971 reveal that women who use talcum powder are between 30 and 40 percent more likely to develop ovarian cancer than those who do not use powder.

Currently, talc powder use near the genitals is considered a “risk factor” for ovarian cancer by the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute, yet Johnson & Johnson has never taken action to warn consumers. As a result, the company is now facing thousands of lawsuits seeking compensation for damages including:

  • Medical bills
  • Physical pain
  • Emotional suffering
  • Lost wages
  • and more
