As reported by The Wall Street Journal, health-products giant Johnson & Johnson has announced that it will discontinue the sale of its talc-containing Johnson’s Baby Powder in the U.S. and Canada, citing lowered sales in the wake of widespread litigation over alleged links between the powder and ovarian cancer in women who used the product for years.
The announcement comes after a series of recent legal victories won by women against talc manufacturers for cancer they alleged was caused by long-term usage of talcum bath products, including those manufactured by Johnson & Johnson. As of March 2020, nearly 19,400 plaintiffs had filed lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson in the U.S. over its talc-containing Johnson’s Baby Powder.
