An Overview of Talcum Powder Lawsuits
As of February 2016, major talcum powder manufacturer Johnson & Johnson (J&J) is facing more than 1,200 total lawsuits and has been ordered to pay more than $100 million in settlements in regards to accusations that the company did not adequately warning consumers of the health risks of its popular Shower to Shower and Baby Powder products. According to several different studies dating back to the 1960s including research by the American Cancer Society, particles from these and other talc-based products can migrate into a woman's ovaries and fallopian tubes if applied near the genital region, destroying nearby tissues and skyrocketing a woman's risk of developing ovarian cancer.
The following brands of talcum powder have all been linked to cancer:
- Johnson & Johnson
- Gold Bond Medicated Powder
- Clubman Pinaud Talc
- Shower to Shower
- Nivea Pure Talc
- McKesson Baby Powder
As a result of the flood of pending lawsuits against major talc manufacturers, the Foundation for Consumers (FFC) has pushed for a warning label that would inform consumers of the risks associated with using talcum powder. Surprisingly, the FDA has remained relatively silent on the subject and has not taken action.
