Attention: Talcum Powder Cancer Victims

Few people ever would have suspected that such a dainty product as talcum powder could cause life-threatening cancer but that’s the exact scenario that has unfolded across the country through thousands of lawsuits and numerous jury verdicts against pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson.

At issue are charges that the product commonly used in baby powder and Shower to Shower for feminine hygiene is contaminated with cancer-causing asbestos.

If you or a loved one has developed ovarian cancer from talcum use there is immediate legal assistance through nationwide resources such as the network of highly specialized attorneys at Injury Help Desk

A compilation of public court records shows that over 15,000 women have sued J&J over claims that the company’s talcum products were the reason they developed cancer.

At least 14 cases have gone to trial and been successfully prosecuted including one in which a group of women in St. Louis convinced jurors they were due almost $4.7 billion in damages for the health problems they suffered.

Symptoms of Ovarian cancer include belly or pelvis pain, abnormal vaginal discharge, abdominal pressure, vaginal bleeding, abdominal bloating, low back pain, changes in bladder or bowel habits and constant fatigue.

J&J also is under investigations announced by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Justice in the fallout over the possibility of asbestos contamination of its talc-based products.

The New York Times in a recent report made the following disturbing conclusions in an in-depth report on J&J’s talcum powder:

  • Johnson & Johnson knew for decades that there were concerns about asbestos contamination in talc, the primary ingredient in its signature baby powder. But the company did not disclose those concerns to consumers.
  • The government doesn’t check commercial talc products for safety before they go on the market, relying on the industry to regulate itself. Companies say the science behind testing for asbestos is complicated.  But recent tests have found evidence of asbestos in another company’s talc-based cosmetic products, leading to recalls.

The Food and Drug Administration reports that the International Agency for Research on Cancer – which is part of the World Health Organization – has classified talc as possibly carcinogenic and On October 18, 2019, the FDA updated its Safety Alert and issued a new Constituent Update warning consumers not to use certain cosmetic products that tested positive for asbestos.

If you or a loved one used J&J talc products and developed ovarian cancer or other dangerous side effects there are experienced attorneys available to assist you in pursuing possible legal action seeking financial compensation.

However, there may be time limitations affecting these legal options so it is important to — as soon as possible — contact the network of highly specialized attorneys at Injury Help Desk where  free consultations are available to eligible victims seeking possible compensation.
