Talcum Powder Lawsuits

Talcum powder (or talc powder) is used in a number of different cosmetic and sanitary products, including Baby Powder—which is largely marketed to women. It is now believed that when Baby Powder is used for genital hygiene, talc particles can travel to the ovaries and cause inflammation. In some cases, this inflammation can foster the development of cancer cells.

Johnson & Johnson has already been held accountable for their alleged liability for talcum powder toxicity. Internal documents show that the company was aware of concerns back in the 1970s and, in 1997, hired a medical consultant to assess the ovarian cancer connection but then ignored the findings.

In 2016, the following verdicts have been rendered against the company:

  • In New Jersey, a woman who developed ovarian cancer after years of talcum powder use was awarded $55 million.
  • In Alabama, the family of a woman who passed away from ovarian cancer was awarded $72 million.
