Studies have shown that women who use talcum powder for personal hygiene are 33% more likely to develop ovarian cancer. If that happened to you, we’ve got the right team of attorneys who can help you get the care and justice you need.
Popular products that contain talcum powder include Johnson’s ® Baby Powder and Shower to Shower ®. Over 1,200 women have already filed lawsuits against these companies for knowing about talcum powder’s connection to ovarian cancer, but disregarding public safety. Two women have already successfully sued Johnson & Johnson and obtained $72 and $55 million verdicts for their injuries.
In addition to recent medical research strengthening the link between talcum powder and cancer, an internal memo from 1997 clearly warned Johnson & Johnson’s management of talc’s link to cancer. Indeed, Johnson was further put on notice of talcum’s carcinogenic properties when its talc supplier began using warning labels concerning the cancer connection in 2006, but the company continued to omit labels from its own products.
