Talc-based baby powder to be pulled from market by J&J

| Medical Drugs

This week, Johnson & Johnson announced it is pulling talc-based baby powder from the market in U.S. and Canada. While the company blames the decision on “a change in consumer habits,” Beasley Allen lawyer Ted Meadows disagrees. Ted is leading the firm’s talc litigation team, representing thousands of women who blame their ovarian cancer diagnoses on genital talc use for feminine hygiene. A federal judge recently ruled in favor of allowing expert testimony that will allow 20,000 federal cases to proceed. The firm will continue to fight in state and federal courts for women who were harmed by the product.
