Did Johnson & Johnson fail to warn women of ovarian cancer risks related to the use of its talcum powder products? For years, Johnson & Johnson has marketed its talcum powder products for feminine hygiene. Yet, the company never warned that the use of talcum powder for feminine hygiene may be linked to ovarian cancer.
Since the early 1970s, numerous studies have indicated an increase in the risk of ovarian cancer with this use of talcum powder. So, why did Johnson & Johnson not warn consumers? Why did Johnson & Johnson continue to make money marketing these products as safe and effective for women? These are questions being raised by women who have suffered ovarian cancer after years of using talcum powder products.
