How Did the U.S. Food & Drug Administration Discover the Link Between Talcum Powder and Cancer?
In 2018, the national media company Reuters revealed that Johnson & Johnson knew for decades that its baby powder products were contaminated by asbestos — a mineral known to cause cancer — but did not disclose that information to the public.
The report stated that the positive tests for asbestos conducted on raw talc and talcum powder began as early as 1971, citing numerous internal company memos, reports, and other documents disclosed during talc lawsuits that suggest the company knew of the danger.
In 2019, a follow up test conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found trace levels of chrysotile asbestos contamination in Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder.
In 2020, Johnson & Johnson announced that it would no longer sell Johnson’s Baby Powder in both the United States and Canada.
Unfortunately, the damage to our clients has already been done.
