The Talcum Powder Lawsuit – Ovarian Cancer Injuries
The current talcum powder lawsuits claim the manufacturers of baby powder failed to warn users of the increased risk of ovarian cancer when women use these products for personal hygiene. The Dugan Law Firm is accepting clients who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and had significant exposure to talcum powder, including Johnson’s Baby Powder.
Plaintiffs’ attorneys claim the manufacturers of talcum powder have known for more than 40 years there is a link between using the product near the genital area and ovarian cancer. However, these companies intentionally made the decision not to warn women that the powder could cause cancer by entering the vagina after being applied to the genital area or on sanitary napkins or condoms.
The main talc products used for personal hygiene are: Johnson’s Baby Powder by Johnson & Johnson; Shower to Shower by Valeant Pharmaceuticals; and Baby Magic Baby Powder.
Research has shown that women who use talcum power on a frequent basis for personal hygiene have a 30% higher chance of getting ovarian cancer.
