THOSE IMPACTED MAY BE ELIGIBLE FOR A SETTLEMENT
Thousands of women have filed lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson® and other manufactures of talcum powder.
People who were exposed to industrial talc or used cosmetic talcum powder and got diagnosed with ovarian cancer, may be entitled to compensation.
FOR 22 WOMEN
Talcum powder itself comes from the mineral Talc, which is composed of magnesium and oxygen. However, many forms of talc from various suppliers and companies have been found to contain asbestos, a highly toxic material that has been strongly linked to cancer development.
One of the largest producers of talc, Johnson & Johnson®, had conducted a study on their own talc mine, only to find that two types of asbestos fibers were clearly present in the talc mine. Due to this blatant contamination, some consumers may be exposed to asbestos without even knowing it.
As of May 2020, Johnson & Johnson® will stop all sales of their talcum powder in the United States and Canada. Additionally, one of the world's largest talc mining companies, Imerys®, forfeited their North American business in order to settle over 14,000 cancer lawsuits linked to asbestos-contaminated talc extracted from their mines. The funds from the sale of Imerys® assets will go directly towards compensating victims of talcum powder.
