Talcum Powder Lawsuits: What to Know

However, Johnson & Johnson did not reveal this fact to any of their distributors or individual consumers. The fact that the company knew this and did not disclose the information makes them guilty of negligence in the cases of any of their consumers who developed cancer due to the baby powder.
