Johnson & Johnson’s Liability
According to internal Johnson & Johnson documents, the company knew
about the dangers talc powder posed to women consumers for years. Talc
was a primary ingredient of Baby Powder and Shower to Shower. According
to one medical consultant's memo to the company, the consultant claimed
anyone that downplayed the correlation between hygienic talc and ovarian
cancer is "denying the obvious in the face of all evidence to the
contrary." That memo was submitted in 1997.
Regardless of the memo, Johnson & Johnson continued to manufacture
baby powder and Shower to Shower, both of which contain talc. There are
no warnings about the risk of ovarian cancer due to talc on the baby powder
products or on the Shower to Shower products. Also, medical research by
a Harvard epidemiologist conducted in the early 1980’s concluded
that the use of talc can lead to ovarian cancer. The results of the research
were provided to Johnson & Johnson, but no consumer warnings regarding
ovarian cancer and talc appear on the products, Baby Powder or Shower
Two large jury verdicts have been returned in Missouri against Johnson
& Johnson related to the use of Johnson & Johnson products that
contain talc and cancer:
- In May 2016, a jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay one affected woman
$55 million for her injuries, including cancer. That recovery includes
both damages and punitive damages.
- In February 2016, a jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay the family
of a deceased woman who died of ovarian cancer $72 million. The victim
had used both baby powder and other Johnson & Johnson products that
contain Talc for many years.
