Lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson allege a possible link between its talcum powder-based products and ovarian cancer. A jury recently awarded $72 million to the family of a woman who died of ovarian cancer.
Lawsuits state that the manufacturers failed to warn users of the increased risk of ovarian cancer caused by using talc-based products for personal hygiene use, despite knowledge of this adverse side effect. Plaintiffs allege these companies intentionally made the decision not to warn consumers that the powder could cause cancer if it travelled through the vagina, uterus, and fallopian tubes to the ovaries after being applied to the genital area or on sanitary napkins, diaphragms or condoms.
