What is Johnson & Johnson Talc Cancer Litigation?

Johnson's Baby Powder discontinuedUnless you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and have had an opportunity to research its link to Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower, you may not know what talc lawsuits are all about.

Johnson & Johnson (J&J) is one of the worlds largest and most recognizable manufacturers of consumer and medical products. For over a century, J&J has been a household name for its quality and safety. One of its most iconic products is baby powder, which has been used by parents for generations to keep their babies skin dry and soft. However, what many consumers may not be aware of is that talcum powder, the main ingredient in baby powder, has been linked to an increased risk of ovarian cancer.

These are more than just cases to our OnderLaw talc team. It’s not only about making sure victims of J&J’s cruel greed are compensated for their injuries and suffering; it’s about making sure future generations don’t have to go through the same pain.

Although court testimony and evidence shows that the link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer has been known for many years, J&J has not only failed to adequately warn consumers of the potential dangers associated with its product, but they have actively hid the dangers from consumers. Their own scientists warned J&J executives decades go that talc was linked to cancers and that it should be discontinued, but the corporation was making hundreds of millions of dollars on the product, so they refused to do the right thing and stop selling it.

As early as 1971, a study in the Journal of Cancer found that women who used talcum powder were more likely to develop ovarian cancer. Since then, the link between the two has been repeatedly confirmed by studies, yet J&J has not provided adequate warnings to consumers about the potential dangers of using talcum powder.

In recent years, OnderLaw began representing thousands of women who are victims of talc-related ovarian cancer and other illnesses. We are holding J&J accountable for failing to warn consumers of the potential dangers associated with talcum powder.

Johnson & Johnson talc ovarian cancer litigation is an ongoing legal dispute over the safety of talcum powder used for feminine hygiene. Johnson & Johnson is one of the largest producers of talcum powder, and the company has been sued by thousands of women across the country who believe that their long-term use of talcum powder caused them to develop ovarian cancer.

We are deeply concerned about the potential health risks associated with talcum powder, and we believe that Johnson & Johnson should be held accountable for the harm that has been caused by their product. The use of talcum powder by women has been a common practice for decades. In fact, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified talcum powder as “possibly carcinogenic to humans” based on the findings of several studies. The studies suggest that women who use talcum powder on their genital area are at an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer, particularly if they have used talcum powder for many years.

Johnson & Johnson had a responsibility to warn consumers about the potential health risks associated with their product, and they failed to do so. As a result, women and their families have suffered considerable physical and emotional harm.

OnderLaw is helping these women and their survivors to seek justice through the courts. Johnson & Johnson talc ovarian cancer litigation is still ongoing, and the outcome of these cases is yet to be determined. However, the fact that so many women have come forward to share their stories is a testament to the power of a unified voice and the importance of standing up for what is right.

This litigation has already created much-needed change in the way that companies are allowed to market their products, and it is our hope that Johnson & Johnson will be held accountable for their failure to protect consumers. In fact, talc has now been taken out of Johnson’s Baby Powder formula, and dozens of other companies that sell talc products are doing the same.

The Johnson & Johnson talc ovarian cancer litigation is an important case for all women, and it is our sincere hope that justice will be served. OnderLaw is committed to doing whatever it takes to ensure that Johnson & Johnson is held accountable for the physical and emotional suffering that their product has caused. We are also committed to making sure that no other woman has to suffer the same fate as the thousands of women we represent today.
