Talcum Powder

Beasley Allen attorney Danielle Mason speaks with Good Morning America about the recent verdict finding Johnson & Johnson liable for injuries related to talcum powder. The jury heard evidence that decades-old research provided information that genital use of talcum powder increases a woman’s risk for developing ovarian cancer, but that J&J failed to warn consumers of this risk. The jury awarded the family of a woman who died from ovarian cancer after using the talc-containing products for 35 years $72 million in damages. The verdict included $10 million for actual damages, and $62 million in punitive damages.

Join The Fight!
Let your voice be heard and sign the petition to ask Johnson & Johnson to release the internal documents revealing the link between talcum powder and cancer. A St. Louis jury has seen the evidence, which ultimately led them to award a $72 million verdict. Hundreds have signed, but we need thousands – tens of thousands – of signatures to get the industry’s attention. So, please take a brief moment and do something that can change lives forever. Please sign and share the petition with your friends and colleagues, and say to J&J, #TellTheTalcTruth!
