• Investigation Finds Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder Contains Asbestos
  • January 8, 2019
  • While not every baby powder test was positive for Asbestos, the Reuters investigation found J&J was aware of the positive tests and did not take efforts to alert the public of the potential harm. The investigation also uncovered efforts by J&J to persuade lawmakers from restricting asbestos regulations. Additionally, the documents suggested the company wanted to reduce research efforts on the negative effects of asbestos.

    According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), any amount of asbestos exposure can potentially be harmful and cancer causing. The recent news reports suggest J&J baby powder has been linked to mesothelioma, ovarian cancer, pulmonary cancer and other asbestos-related diseases. However, the company is continuing to deny allegations that it knew asbestos was in its products.

    The effects from asbestos exposure can be devastating. Tragically, many people exposed to asbestos through J&J baby powder or similar products can have a difficult time proving their case. If you or someone you love is suffering from an asbestos-related disease, consult with an experienced mesothelioma and asbestos attorney to discuss your options and help you retain the compensation you deserve.
