Baby powder is a common household product used by millions of women around the world as a feminine hygiene product. What many people don’t know is that talc-based products are associated with increased risk of ovarian cancer and mesothelioma.
Products from Johnson & Johnson, including Shower to Shower or Johnson’s Baby Powder, have been linked to cancer. In fact, hundreds of millions of dollars have already been paid to victims and their families by Johnson & Johnson through court cases and settlements.
2019 Update: Johnson & Johnson recalled a batch of around 33,000 baby powder bottles after the FDA found traces of cancer-causing asbestos in the product. The voluntary recall comes as more talcum powder lawsuits are being filed claiming J&J’s baby powder products caused women to develop ovarian cancer.
