Talcum powder litigation update from Beasley Allen principal Ted Meadows

Following two major verdicts and more cases to be tried in the fall, Beasley Allen principal Ted Meadows updates our viewers on the talcum powder litigation and its importance to consumer safety. Talcum powder is a product widely used by women for personal hygiene in the genital area; however, this usage could increase the risk of ovarian cancer due to traveling talc particles reaching women’s ovaries. It is believed that as many as 2,200 cases of ovarian cancer diagnosed each year may have been caused by regular use of talcum powder.
