Johnson & Johnson Talcum (“Talc”) Powder
Johnson & Johnson has faced thousands of lawsuits from cancer patients who claim that its talc was contaminated with asbestos, a known carcinogen, and that the company knew of the risks.
In Recent Jury Trials, Plaintiffs Have Been Award $72 Million and $55 Million for Their Lawsuits Alleging Ovarian Cancer Was Caused by Johnson & Johnson’s Talcum Powder.
The trial judges found “clear and convincing evidence” that J&J acted with malice in hiding the risks of ovarian cancer associated with talcum powder and that therefore the jury could award punitive damages. The juries sent a message to J&J that their conduct was not acceptable.

The company said that it would wind down sales over the next few months, allowing existing bottles to be sold by retailers until they run out. Baby powder made with cornstarch will remain available, and talc-based baby powder will continue to be sold in other parts of the world.
If you or a loved one are a woman who used talcum powder on a regular and consistent basis for years for feminine hygiene and were diagnosed with ovarian cancer, you may be entitled to significant compensation.
