Studies as far back as 1971 suggest that women who regularly use talc powder for feminine hygiene have an increased risk for ovarian cancer, yet J&J has failed to warn them of the danger.
Women use talcum powder every day, applying it directly to their genitals, dusting it on sanitary pads and undergarments, sprinkling it on contraceptive diaphragms, and coming into contact with talc-coated condoms – but they would never have expected that their prolonged exposure would lead to ovarian cancer.
Johnson & Johnson has manufactured and marketed Johnson’s Baby Powder, Shower to Shower Powder, and other talcum products for decades, yet despite the research, has failed to warn consumers of the risk. Now women harmed by its products and the families that suffer with them are pursuing lawsuits to recover for their pain, suffering, and other damages.
Sommers Schwartz attorneys are investigating the claims of women who:
- Routinely used Johnson & Johnson talcum powder products
- Have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer
- Are not otherwise predisposed to cancer due to the presence of BRCA genes
