Talcum Powder and Talc Exposure Claims, Lawsuits, and Settlements

Talcum powder contains the mineral talc, and some talc in its natural form may contain asbestos. Asbestos is a known carcinogen that has been linked to mesothelioma and recently to ovarian cancer. Talcum powder was commonly sold for years by companies like Johnson & Johnson with no warnings about the potential risks. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, ovarian tumors, endometrial cancer, fallopian tube cancer or mesothelioma or other problems after frequent use of talc products, you may be eligible for compensation.

Talcum powder asbestos warning

Clear links have been found between talcum powder and ovarian cancer, and research has also found evidence linking talcum powder and mesothelioma.

The two products which lawsuits are generally revolving around include:

  • Johnson’s Baby Powder: A staple consumer product that has been on the market for over a century. The product has built a following because of history and branding.
  • Shower-to-Shower Body Powder: While newer than Johnson’s Baby Powder, this product has been on the market for over 50 years.

Alongside these two products, a number of other companies have faced lawsuits because of their talcum powder products, including Whittaker, Clark & Daniels, and Colgate-Palmolive.
