 Johnson & Johnson will stop selling baby talcum powder in the US and Canada


Reuters said Johnson & Johnson faces more than 16000 consumer lawsuits that consumers believe its talcum products, including baby powder, cause cancer.

According to the lawsuit, Johnson & Johnsons talcum powder product contains asbestos, a known carcinogen. However, J & J, citing decades of scientific research, still insists that it has confidence in the safety of baby talcum powder containing talcum powder. Johnson & Johnson also said it will continue to sell baby talcum powder containing corn starch in North America and its products containing talcum powder and corn starch in other markets around the world. This is not the first time that baby powder has been controversial. As early as July 2018, a jury in a court in St. Louis, Missouri, ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $4.69 billion to 22 women and their families. The jury said Johnson & Johnsons talcum powder products, such as baby talcum powder, contain asbestos fibers that cause cancer. The 22 women developed ovarian cancer after years of using the products. At that time, Johnson said it would appeal. In February 2019, Johnson & Johnson also received a subpoena from the U.S. government for baby powder. Source: global.com Author: Ding Jieyun editor in charge: Wang Xiaowu_ NF
