Popular medical device company Johnson & Johnson, recalled a shipment of baby powder after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found evidence of asbestos in the product.This is comes after numerous claims were made over the years stating that the talc-based product contained the cancer causing carcinogen. Allegedly, the company knew about the dangerous effects of the product but may have failed to warn consumers.

Some reports claim that Johnson & Johnson may have been aware about the harm the product may cause for nearly 50 years. This is not the first time Johnson & Johnson has been at the forefront of a large consumer class action for its products. The company also disclosed months prior to the recall that it is being investigated by the Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission over the alleged asbestos-tainted product.
What do Johnson & Johnson Lawsuits Claim?
Asbestos comes from talc, which is a natural mineral that found underground. Exposure to asbestos can cause serious diseases and cancers such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, ovarian cancer, and more. Although the FDA found a small amount of asbestos in the powder, U.S. health agencies claim that no amount of exposure to asbestos may be deemed safe.
Johnson & Johnson’s issued recall allegedly covers 33,000 bottles of baby powder. This includes online and in-store purchases by retailers. The recall may add to the number of lawsuits that have been filed over the dangers of talcum-powder made by Johnson & Johnson in previous years. Those who have been exposed to asbestos tainted talcum-powder may develop serious complications as a result.
