Talcum Powder Lawsuits

Thousands of women throughout the United States may have developed ovarian cancer from side effects of talcum powder. Lawsuits are being investigated over allegedly inadequate warnings provided by manufacturers who sell talcum-based products under various different names, including Baby Powder, Body Powder and Talc Powder.

STATUS OF TALC POWDER LAWSUITS Product liability lawyers are reviewing potential talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuits for women throughout the United States. Several cases have already been successful at trial against Johnson & Johnson over failure to warn about the risk of ovarian cancer, with one resulting in a $4.7 billion verdict.

>>CONTACT A LAWYER ABOUT A TALC POWDER INJURY<<

OVERVIEW: Talcum powder is derived from talc, which is a hydrated magnesium silicate. It is used for a multitude of purposes and is in many, if not most, U.S. households in some form or another.

While it is most commonly known as Baby Powder, used to prevent or treat rashes, many women also talc powder for personal hygiene and cosmetics. As a result, many different products are also marketed as body powder, such as “Shower to Shower” and other brand names.

Talc contained in many of these powders is a mineral composed of hydrated magnesium silicate. While talc powder is generally recognized as safe, it may pose serious and potentially life-threatening health concerns when used for feminine hygiene.

TALC POWDER OVARIAN CANCER RISKS: Concerns over the potential link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer has been suspected for decades. However, the manufacturers have sold talc body powder as a safe product, withholding important safety information from consumers.

As early as 1971, researchers found talc embedded in 75% of all ovarian tumors researchers studied. In addition, several studies and reports have confirmed that talc applied to a woman’s genital area may travel through the vagina and into the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries.

In June 2013, a study published in the medical journal Cancer Prevention Research found that women who used talcum body powder as a feminine hygiene produce may face a 20% to 30% greater risk of ovarian cancer compared to those who do not apply talc.

As a result of Johnson & Johnson’s and other manufacturers’ failure to disclose the potential ovarian cancer risks women may face, financial compensation may be available through a talcum powder lawsuit or settlement.

In October 2013, a South Dakota jury determined that Johnson & Johnson failed to adequately warn women about the risk of ovarian cancer from body powder. The trial involved a 56 year old woman diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2006, after using Johnson & Johnson Shower-to-Shower talc powder. Three doctors who examined her cancer tissue found talc in the tissue using an electron microscope, and determined that her cancer was caused by the body powder.

According to testimony offered by one expert during that trial, it is estimated that 10,000 cases of ovarian cancer may be caused by talcum powder each year.

In February 2016, a jury awarded $72 million in damages to the family of a woman who died from ovarian cancer, and a separate jury awarded $55 million in another talc ovarian cancer in May 2016, involving a woman who developed ovarian cancer following decades of using the popular products. Another verdict of $70 million in damages was awarded in October 2016 in a similar case. A verdict in May in yet another case resulted in $110 million in damages. However, the largest verdict was handed down in August 2017 by a California jury, who hit Johnson & Johnson with a $417 million verdict. That verdict has since been overturned and a new trial ordered.

In February 2017, Johnson & Johnson won its first defense verdict,.and in June 2017 another case was declared a mistrial following a Supreme Court decision limiting plaintiffs’ options for filing in state courts. Another California jury awarded a woman $29 million in March 2019.

However, the largest decision came in August 2018, when a group of 22 women were awarded $4.7 billion, in a verdict that was later upheld based on the amount of evidence indicating the company knew about the risks of ovarian cancer but failed to warn women or doctors for decades.

In early 2019, Johnson & Johnson settled three cases that were headed for trial, but has yet to announce efforts to reach a global settlement. That was followed by a $325 million verdict against Johnson & Johnson in New York’s so-called “asbestos court.”

In addition to ovarian cancer, several recent studies have suggested that talcum powder may have similar effects to asbestos and could cause mesothelioma. A November 2018 report indicated that internal memos within Johnson & Johnson revealed the company knew about the potential asbestos problem since at least the 1950s.

On October 18, the FDA announced it had discovered asbestos in Johnson’s Baby Powder, resulting in a recall of 33,000 bottles sold at major pharmacies nationwide. It is the first recall in the product’s history, according to Johnson & Johnson.

All talcum powder cancer lawsuits filed in federal courts nationwide are consolidated in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey. The first talcum powder bellwether trial is scheduled to begin in April 2022.

However, the fate of those trials has come into question after Johnson & Johnson formed a new subsidiary, LTL Management LLC, for the express purpose of placing responsibility for its talcum powder products into the new unit,  and then having the new subsidiary declare bankruptcy as a way to potentially isolate Johnson & Johnson from future costs of the litigation and potentially limit claims earned by plaintiffs.

    There is no evidence that would stand up to real science that talc causes ovarian cancer. The fact that you used talc an got ovarian cancer does not tell you the talc caused it.

    I also used talcum powder nearly daily from age 20 until mid 40's. I started hemorrhaging several times and was diagnosed with a very large fibroid tumor (grapefruit sized) It was decided that I needed to have a complete hysterectomy. I have read since then, that talcum powder can cause fibroids as well.

My earliest remembrance of using the J&J products was when I was three years old by my mother up until the time that I showered myself and she showed me the routine to do myself. As I got older I had been a daily user of the powder as well as shower to shower both the blue and the purple kind. After being forced into menopause at the age of 28 I have had nothing but health problems ever since. This is something that has completely changed the trajectory of my life in pretty much every way on the daily. I unfortunately lost my husband to cancer in 2011 however I’ve met a man that I’ve been with for over a year now who is 39 years old and I am unable to give him any children of his own and we are set to be married. Although he says that this is not a dealbreaker that I can not give him a child of his own, I feel that this was a decision that I or we really have had unjustly taken away from us to actually have the opportunity to make. I am very thankful of the Lord as he always does have a way of providing.

    I grew using Johnson's Baby powder, later shower to shower powder; in my late 30's my period became extremely heavy lasting up to 10 days. I was diagnosed with fibroids which resulted in a total hysterectomy. As mother I used it on my daughter, at about 6mo she developed a black rash , I was advised by her pediatrician discontinue the johnson and johnson powder. Do I have a case?

I have six children and requested help from doctors many times. friends told me that was normal after so many children. I had a 2.3 hemoglobin level, emergency 4 pt. blood transfusion and 2 years of attempting to regain health. I had two uterine fibroids, one being finally 16 cm when surgical removal of just the whole, in-tact fibroids was approved, as I did not want any organs removed. I have used Johnson's baby powder since I was a kid and loved the smell and ability to keep myself dry and fresh. I also used baby powder liberally with all of my children during their infancy to prevent diaper rash. If baby powder with asbestos is at the root of this, I would like compensation for my losses of freedom, health, and ability to thrive and prosper as an adult. I suffered immensely and almost died in 2015 before medical intervention. I have never been able to fully function without extreme stress and embarrassment or had to decline work due to heavy, uncontrollable blood loss for 5-7 days monthly.

    There are different types of Ovarian Cancer and Uterine Cancers, however, Epithelial High Grade Serous Ovarian Cancer can be related to Mesothelioma/Asbestos in Fallopian Tube and Ovaries. If you used Talc daily contact an Attorney.

    Real scientific evidence shows that there is really no link between J&J Baby powder and Shower To Shower powder and Ovarian cancer or Mesothelioma. Lawyers have been depending on "Junk Science" to prove otherwise.

When I learnt about this issue with talc, it got me thinking and now I so wish I had stayed away from that stuff. I will appreciate any thoughts or comments.

I did and a vaginal ultrasound reveled my uterus was completely full of fibroid tumors. They said my uterus was the size of a football and it was as if I was 5 months pregnant but not pregnant. My question is...why just ovarian cancer linked with talc powder? The powder has to pass through the uterus to reach the ovaries. What about us fibroid tumor girls who suffered and lost our uterus' due to talc usage? Thank you for your help.

    My mom used baby powder after showering my entire life. Then developed masses on her ovaries I believe in 2010. It started out with constipation symptoms. She was in ICU for months. The biopsies showed low grade in the masses. But because of these masses she ended up dying from complications in 2015. If it weren't for the masses she won't have been constipated; which caused her to become septic.

I recently had a breast cancer scare....fortunately, it was benign. The doctor informed me that cancer cells are present in every person's body, but your immune system naturally destroys them if they act up. However, if your immune system is compromised in any way, and your body is unable to destroy them efficiently, then they can spread and take over. :( In addition, I recently read that SUGAR and GMOs are the causes for our country's increase in all cancers! WE are hooked on convenience, love sugar (real/artificial), and quite honestly, lazy! MOST all foods in a grocery store have sugar and/or have been modified. As unfortunate as it is for all cancer diagnosis, I think WE ALL should be searching deeper into why the huge increase in cancers. I am not convinced that talcum powder is the true cause of ovarian cancer...maybe a trigger?? We need to consider all of the increases in diabetes (cut out SUGARS), Autism, Aspergers, colon, stomach, breast, brain cancers, etc. We need to be more informed and demand change!

Cancer then returned a few years as an aggressive for of sarcoma which had spread to her lungs & to her liver & our family was informed that it had spread to far & with her age she wouldn't be able to survive the chemotherapy as she was much to frail. My sister & I kept her with us along with hospice. She suffered a terribly painful death. My moms birthday was Aug. 5th & and she passed away on the 13th of Aug. that same year. Our family is still in mourning even to this day, she was the binding force for our family. With all the info now out for everyone to know I wonder if my mothers daily use of these 2 talcum products are the reason she suffered with all of these cancerous events in her life & caused her to suffer so much & has left our family to suffer now with our loss of her.

December 2014, I had a full hysterectomy. I wish I would have known sooner about the destructive use of talcum powder.

It was always in our bathroom cabinet as #1 product throughout our house. She even sang the song to the Shower to Shower Commercial. "A Shower A Day Helps Keep The Odor Away". She always wanted to smell fresh and clean. When she came home from work and smelling like a restaurant as a cook; she made sure she would use J & J. The main place was putting it down in her private area. When she finished her bath that Johnson and Johnson or Shower was the first thing. She made all of us girls use it also. Thank God I had graduated from Nursing school and being able to help her be a little more comfortable before she died. She didn't want anybody bathing her. I remember it so clear, putting that powder on her after I bathe her. My mother was like my private patient after getting out of the nursing classes. I myself stopped using that powder a little after my mom passed. At least not in the private area was the Dr's order. However, I also use to wonder why would the Doctors cut on my mother's neck, and her foot when the problem was in her ovaries, her uterus. I always felt My mother was used as an experiment. She was only 38 years old when she died. She was about 5'8 weighed around 190 pounds. When she died it as on Father's Day June 15th 1980. She weighed somewhere around 80 pounds. Up until her death she wanted that powder down in her private area. Everything that has a clean smell doesn't mean a thing. She never got the chance to see her children or grandchildren grow. Knowing that this Johnson and Johnson could have played a part in my mothers death makes me sick to my stomach and especially if they KNEW about the risk of this product. Woman use this powder everywhere around the country that's crazy. My sister is Linda is on point just above. My mother's youngest was 7 years of age, and I was 19 at the time. Memories I will never forget. I sure do miss her.

A month ago, we were told that the cancer has again spread, now to her liver and her lymph nodes. She will be 80 in November and she has had enough. She will do no more chemotherapy. She weighs 88#'s with her clothes on and even if she did choose chemo, she is just not strong enough to survive it. And yes, she always used talc powder; either J & J baby powder or shower to shower. She also used J & J baby powder on all of us when we were babies. As did I on our 3 children. ☹️

(I wont even get into all the problems i had after surgery and needing a wound vac after the 25 staples had been removed and 15 minutes later my stomach ripped wide open) anyway the huge ovary was sent to pathology and I was diagnosed with BODERLINE SEROUS TUMOR OF THE OVARY...they felt 95% sure that cancer was contained inside the ovary so didn't need any cancer treatments except for just getting the CA125 blood work every 6 months for 5 years...after 5 years of having this bloodwork done twice a year they informed me my numbers were good therefore I was free of cancer and didn't need to have the blood work test done any further...I have been a user of shower to shower talc and johnsons baby powder for more then 20 years using as a Femine hygiene product..I too am like others and curious if it was the talc I used all these years caused all the pain and suffering and the reason for the cancer and reason for the hysterectomy being necessary. .I have pictures of my actual enlarged ovary filled with cancer.

Her pants kept getting tighter and she was always bloated. Her stomach started looking like she was 8 months pregnant. My mother ALWAYS used Shower to Shower powder every day to stay fresh between her legs. She would even sprinkle the power on her panty liners. Even when she was diagnosed, she continued to use it. There is no family history of ovarian or breast cancer in our family. For 4 ½ years my mother suffered. She went through 3 cycles of chemo and lost her hair twice. I watched my mother get smaller and smaller until she passed away in my arms. My mother was 69 years old. Before she got sick, she danced, shopped and walked everywhere. Outside of a hangnail or the common cold, my mother was never sick. If this powder is the reason my healthy mom died, something needs to be done to this company. They should have disclosed the information they had.

I am 36 with the possibility if chemo doesn't work to die before I am 40. I am disgusted that they knew all this and didn't do anything to protect us woman. It is beyond terrible what they have done and still are doing.

    I have used this product years ago. Couple of years ago I had cancerous tumors on my ovaries and uterus I had a total hysterectomy. Could this refer to me as well?

  • TaraNovember 14, 2014 at 9:51 am

    Ok..what about all the OTHER powders on the market, such as the make up powders we all use. The majority of those are TALC powder.

    I had to have a hysterectomy at the age of 29 due to gynecological issues. The results came back as having stage 1 ovarian cancer. I used shower to shower and baby powder for most of teenage and young adult life. I would like to know if the use of talcum powder is associated with ovarian cancer

  • victoriaOctober 7, 2014 at 2:35 pm

    Shame shame to all you talc an powders for not saying anything to us moms who used this product on our babys and daugthers.and I myself used this for the same reason to keep things dry.And my mother before me,I'm looking at a long line here people whats up ?Well guess what is checkup time.

  • SHERRASeptember 23, 2014 at 2:41 pm

    My daughter who is 26 is suffering now with ovarian cancer and I did use powder on her. What are the qualifying guidelines for her to file a case?

  • RandiJune 18, 2014 at 8:25 am

    I've used baby powder and powder to powder my entire life. Keeps you dry down there. I suffered cervical cancer quite a few years ago. Could that have been from that powder?

  • TrevaJune 9, 2014 at 5:47 pm

    I also want to know for sure if the many containers of powder I used through my life caused my cancer. I never saw a warning on a container of talc powder, whether it was J&J or any other I used.

  • J. R. NakkenMay 19, 2014 at 7:05 pm

    I would want to know for sure - with certifiable proof - that a household name such as Johnson and Johnson KNEW that talc might be responsible for ovarian cancer, and did nothing or worse. Is such proof available?
