When we buy everyday products for our homes, we trust the hands of the producers. We assume that this product has been tested and proven safe for families.
So if it is claimed that staple foods like talcum powder cause ovarian cancer and manufacturers like Johnson & Johnson have known about cancer risk for decades but have not warned consumers, it is an attack on the American people.
What's worse, Johnson and Johnson are targeting their talc products to African-American women through advertising campaigns and company internal records. This causes African-American consumers to use powder more often.
Johnson and Johnson are reported to have known cancer risks from their products, and the company still encourages powder for women – especially African-Americans – as a safe product.
If you or someone you love has ovarian cancer after using powder, lawyers can help you get compensation for your injuries and hold the producer accountable for their alleged fraud and neglect.
Talcum powder consists of soft clay minerals used in baby powder and other cosmetics. Because the powder absorbs moisture, it is usually used for female hygiene and removes odors.
Manufacturers like Johnson & Johnson advertise their talc powder mainly for women's hygiene. As a result, many women regularly use products in their genital area to increase freshness.
