Johnson & Johnson is currently facing lawsuits from all over the country
for failing to warn consumers that use of talcum powder on or near the
genitals substantially increases a woman’s risk of developing ovarian
cancer. Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. is now reviewing
claims on behalf of women who were diagnosed with cancer associated with
use of Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder and Shower to Shower powder.
Johnson & Johnson has known about the ovarian cancer risk for decades,
but has neglected to warn consumers by placing an appropriate warning
label on its products. Studies have shown that women who regularly used
talc-containing products for feminine hygiene have their cancer risk increased
by up to 40 percent. In fact, talc is considered a possible carcinogen
by both the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute.
Talc particles that migrate into the body can become embedded within the
walls of the ovaries, causing irritation that could encourage the growth
of potentially malignant tumors. Ovarian cancer can be difficult to detect
early and is often found after it has already has a chance to worsen.
Because of this, ovarian cancer could be a fatal diagnosis.
Recently, juries in two separate
talcum powder lawsuits have ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay a combined $127 million in compensatory
and punitive damages. The company still faces approximately 1,200 other claims.
