J&J’s Baby Powder Problem
Posted on: April 7, 2016 Talcum Powder Lawsuits
Bloomberg released an investigatory report regarding the potential link between long term use of talcum powder in the genital area and ovarian cancer in women. J&J has been selling its Baby Powder for over 100 years, yet there had never been a discussion concerning ovarian cancer until a British study done in 1971 found talc particles “deeply embedded” in 10 of 13 ovarian tumors. Since then, numerous other studies have gone on to show there may be a link between long term genital use of the product and ovarian cancer. The report also illustrates that J&J deliberately marketed its Baby Powder for use by women, particularly minority women. For its part, J&J continues to tout the safety of its products and argues that the “statistical links” between talcum powder and ovarian cancer are “weak and based on unreliable data.”
