Talc is one of the most common ingredients in health and beauty products such as Johnson's Baby Powder® and Shower to Shower®. Unfortunately, research has found a link between talcum use and ovarian cancer, leading many victims to file talcum powder litigation against Johnson & Johnson.
Large companies such as Johnson & Johnson have been making products containing talc for many years. Products such as Baby Powder and Mandi® are marketed and sold safely and effectively for adults.
Health professionals have known for years that products containing talcum powder can pose a threat to babies and children if they inhale the tiny particles of dust. However, a number of consumers have filed lawsuits in the Talc case after they were diagnosed with ovarian cancer, which is believed to be caused by the product.
Many women have used baby powder or showers for decades to keep the genital area cool and comfortable. In addition, birth control products such as condoms or diaphragms are coated with a powder-based powder.
If you or a loved one is diagnosed with ovarian cancer after prolonged exposure to Johnson's or Shower to Shower® Baby Powder, you may be entitled to substantial compensation. Please contact a lawyer experienced with defective products today to investigate your legal rights.
