Talcum Powder Lawsuits

Women were not given the information they needed to know

There is increasing concern that the long-term use of talcum powder causes ovarian cancer.

Questions about the safety of the product have lingered for decades. In 1971, researchers questioned whether the use of baby and other talcum powder causes ovarian cancer when doctors began uncovering talc particles in cancerous tumors. A 1982 Harvard University study quantified the risk, with researchers concluding that women who used talcum powder products were twice as likely to develop ovarian cancer and regular users of the products had nearly three times the risk.

Subsequent research has confirmed a link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer, including a study earlier this year that found African-American women who used talcum powder had a 44% higher risk of ovarian cancer.

RPWB attorneys are representing talcum powder users who developed ovarian cancer in lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson for its failure to warn women about the risk of using their Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products. The manufacturer for years has downplayed safety concerns in the face of an increasing body of science suggesting their products are harmful.
