Johnson and Johnson Stops Selling Its Baby Powder in US and Canada

Johnson and Johnson has spent the past 50 years selling their famous talc based baby powder concealing the fact that some of the talc used  was contaminated with asbestos.  In fact,  their internal documents from  the early 1970s showing they knew their talc in their baby powder contained “asbestiform”, “fiberform” and “rods”  which is actually asbestos.   As a result, our law firm has been pursuing justice for victims of mesothelioma and ovarian cancer if their cancers were due to asbestos exposure from J&J Baby Powder. 


Now,  Johnson & Johnson announced  they will finally  stop selling their baby powder in the US an Canada.   They said they are doing so not because of the recent verdicts against the company holding them liable for these cancers, but rather out of an abundance of caution in light of the recent FDA test that actually found asbestos contamination in samples of baby powder that was purchased from an online retailer.   

If you have developed mesothelioma, whether it be from asbestos containing products found in the construction industry, navy, powerhouses, mills, talcum powder or other sources, please contact us immediately as we may be able to help you like we have been successfully helping asbestos victims for the past 40 years.  

Likewise, if you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer within the past 4 years, have no history of endometriosis, are not positive for BRCA1 or BRCA2 genetic testing to your knowledge, and you have used J&J’s talcum baby powder for at least 5 years or more, please contact us for help.

Johnson & Johnson Stops Selling Talc-Based Baby Powder In U.S. And Canada

For over 40 years and despite our best efforts to educate legislators and congress about the hazards of asbestos, the United States still imports a tremendous amount of asbestos every year. Alan Pickert leads the Asbestos Team at Terrell • Hogan, said “It truly is a horrific tragedy that people continue to develop mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer every day. All we can do is to continue to be successful for our asbestos clients in obtaining the justice and compensation they deserve for their asbestos injuries. If someone develops lung cancer or mesothelioma and they believe they may have been exposed to asbestos, they should call us right away.”
