As a growing number of Johnson Baby Powder lawsuits and Shower-to-Shower body powder lawsuits are being filed nationwide by women diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using the talcum-based product around their genital areas, questions are being raised about when Johnson & Johnson first learned about the link between side effects of talc powder and ovarian cancer, and why adequate warnings were not provided for consumers.
The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing potential ovarian cancer claims for women nationwide who may be entitled to financial compensation as a result of Johnson & Johnson’s apparent decision to place their desire for profits before the health and safety of women.
Although it is early in the litigation, and additional information is certainly going to be discovered as the lawsuits continue through the court system, it appears clear that Johnson & Johnson knew or should have known about the ovarian cancer risks from talc in their baby and body powders for decades.
Johnson’s Baby Powder Cancer Risk Timeline
Johnson & Johnson has had more than 100 years of data and adverse event reports available about Johnson’s Baby Powder and talc body powders sold by the company.
A growing body of independent research has also established the link between ovarian cancer and talc, yet Johnson & Johnson continued to sell it’s baby powder and shower powder products as safe without warning women about the risks.
Talc Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits
There is a clear line of association established between numerous studies that show side effects of talc can cause ovarian cancer when used on the genitals. However, Johnson & Johnson continues to fail to warn women of the risks, despite knowing that millions of women worldwide use its products in a way that puts their health in jeopardy.
For decades, Johnson & Johnson has failed to act to make Johnson’s Baby Powder, Shower-to-Shower and other body powders safer or warn women of the risks. As a result of their apparent decision to place their desire for profits before the health of consumers, financial compensation may be available if you, a friend or family member have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer after regular application of talc powder on the genitals.
