You’ve probably read news stories about jury court verdicts in the USA alleging that JOHNSON’S® baby powder can cause cancer. But you may not have read or heard this:
Of all the verdicts against Johnson & Johnson that have been through the appeal process, each one has been overturned. Further, there have also been several trials where juries have concluded that Johnson & Johnson’s product was not responsible for the plaintiffs’ cancer, and in other instances, judges have dismissed cases outright, based on their own review of the facts.
JOHNSON’S® baby powder is asbestos-free and does not cause cancer. We have scientific evidence to prove that our talcum powder is safe and beneficial to use. The facts about the science of talcum powder can be found on the website www.factsabouttalc.com.
