For many years, women have used talcum powder to control moisture, odor, and chafing in the groin area. Unfortunately, the use of these products can cause significant harm to some women. Several pending lawsuits are now being pursued against Johnson & Johnson, a major pharmaceutical company and manufacturer of talcum powder products, including Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower.

Allegations Against Johnson & Johnson Relating to Talcum Powder Use

Talcum Powder ContainerOver the course of several decades, women applied talc-based powders or sprinkled them on undergarments and sanitary pads to keep the groin area cool and comfortable and prevent vaginal odors. Some women were also exposed to the powder when it was sprinkled on diaphragms or condoms. Later, medical studies revealed a link between the use of talc-based powders in the vaginal area and the development of ovarian cancer. As a result, lawsuits have since been filed. Johnson & Johnson, the manufacturer of talcum and baby powders aimed at mothers and babies, has been accused of the following:

  1. Violating consumers’ legal remedies
  2. Violating the Unfair Competition law and business and professions code
  3. Negligence
  4. Breach of implied warranty

Unfortunately, despite the fact that the use of talcum powder has been linked to serious health effects, major manufacturers of talcum powder products continue to not warn consumers of the potential dangers associated with the use of the products. If you used talcum powder and were diagnosed with ovarian cancer, we encourage you to contact an attorney in order to protect your legal rights. Call us today at 888-526-7616 for more information.
