In the early 1970s, studies uncovered a link between ovarian cancer and talcum powder. Talcum powder was popularized by Johnson & Johnson® with Baby Powder and Shower to Shower®. Since, research confirming the link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer has been opposed by Johnson & Johnson. In 1999, the American Cancer Society announced talcum powder use could lead to serious illness. Regardless, products remain on store shelves, many of them without any warning that talcum powder could increase the odds of developing cancer. In May of 2020, Johnson & Johnson announced that it would stop selling its talcum-based powder in the United States.
If you have been diagnosed with cancer after using Johnson & Johnson's Baby Powder or Shower to Shower®, you may qualify for compensation.
