Talcum Powder Cases & Research

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral found in rock and soil. It can be lethal when it enters the human body, causing lung cancer, mesothelioma, stomach cancer and many other diseases. Asbestos-based talcum powder has been linked to ovarian and uterine cancer in women.

Johnson & Johnson is one of the biggest companies that has been sued for asbestos in its talcum powder products, especially in its baby powder.

Some key facts:

  • The earliest reports of asbestos in J&J talc products date back to 1957-1958.
  • As of April 2020, the cosmetics giant faces around 16,000 lawsuits alleging that its talc products have led to ovarian cancer.
  • The company paid $9 million in February 2020 to an 82-year-old Florida woman who allegedly developed mesothelioma after using Johnson & Johnson talc products.
  • It settled a case in California for $2 million in January 2020.
  • One of the largest payouts was in 2018, when a jury ordered the company to pay more than $4 billion to 22 women diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

Talcum Powder Products and Cases

Johnson & Johnson is not the only company being sued for selling asbestos-laden, talc-based products. Plaintiffs are suing several other companies that manufacture baby/body powder.

  • Johnson & Johnson
  • Rite Aid
  • Anti Monkey Butt

  • CVS
  • Angel of Mine
  • Colgate-Palmolive
Johnson & Johnson (J&J) is in the news again for all of the wrong reasons. The pharmaceutical giant has been told by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to hand over documents linked to claims that the company’s talcum powder products have been contaminated with asbestos.
In the summer of 2018, Krystal Kim, a 53-year-old African-American woman, was one of the plaintiffs in a successful lawsuit against pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson (J&J). The jury in that trial awarded $4.69 billion to Kim and 21 others – all of whom are suffering from ovarian cancer or mesothelioma which they believe was caused by extensive use of J&J’s signature product, Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder.
Johnson & Johnson is facing nearly 12,000 lawsuits from individuals who claim their cancers were caused by the company’s powder products. These cases include suits from thousands of women who charge that Johnson & Johnson talcum powder products caused their ovarian cancer.
