Talcum Powder Lawsuits
Mass Tort Attorney In Oceanside

Johnson & Johnson (J&J), one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, has been targeted by numerous talcum powder lawsuits and mass torts for harm caused by its talc powder products. The company has been accused of advertising talc powder as safe for use as a feminine hygiene product despite knowing of potential carcinogenic properties of the substance.

Dangers Of Regular Talcum Powder Use
When talc powder is used regularly for feminine hygiene, it can cause a noticeably increased risk of ovarian or fallopian cancer. Talc is a naturally occurring mineral, which is refined and manufactured into talc powder. When used for feminine hygiene, as it has been advertised, trace amounts of talc mineral can begin to collect in the fallopian tubes or the ovaries.
As time goes on, the deposit will inflame and irritate the surrounding tissue, to the point of triggering cancerous growths. Due to the gradual accrual of talc mineral in microscopic amounts, the longer a woman used talc powder for this purpose, the more likely she will be at risk of ovarian cancer.
Johnson & Johnson has been slammed with numerous lawsuits — many of which have been lost by J&J in court but appealed for review — due to accusations it new the dangers of talc powder long ago. In fact, some reports seem to corroborate with decades' old American Cancer Society (ACS) research that indicates J&J knew or should have reasonably knew talc powder use caused ovarian cancer.
For the Big Pharma company to continue to advertise talcum powder as a safe product for so many years after knowing of its dangers is an egregious form of negligence that must be met with appropriate legal action. This is where your mass tort lawsuit becomes so important, as you can help ensure such corporate negligence never hurts someone in a similar way again.
