Details of the Johnson & Johnson Talc Class Action

Baby Powder, otherwise known as talcum powder, is made from talc, which consists mainly of magnesium, silicon, and oxygen. Baby Powder is commonly used to prevent moisture and reduce friction in sensitive areas on both adults and children. 

Studies have shown that the prolonged use of products containing talcum powder may increase an individual’s risk of developing ovarian cancer, especially if used regularly. Further, research shows that over time, applying talcum powder to one’s genitals, underwear, and/or sanitary napkins increases the risk of developing ovarian cancer by at least 33%. Despite this evidence, Johnson & Johnson has maintained its denial of such a connection, and has kept its product on the shelves for decades without any consumer warnings.

Frequently Asked Questions

A class action is a lawsuit which provides a method for a large group of people with common claims to come together to advance one claim on behalf of the group. Class actions are more efficient and cost-effective and allow for groups of people with common claims to gain access to the legal system and seek justice on their behalf.

A certification motion is where the court determines whether an action can be pursued as a class action. The court considers factors such as whether the claims of the class members raise common legal and/or factual issues and whether a class action is the preferable method of pursuing the claims (as opposed to individual actions).
