Johnson & Johnson to Stop Selling Talc-Based Baby Powder in US & Canada

FAIRLESS HILLS, Pa. (AP) — Johnson & Johnson is ending sales of its iconic talc-based Johnson’s Baby Powder in the U.S. and Canada, where demand has dwindled amid thousands of lawsuits claiming it has caused cancer.

Although, the world’s biggest maker of health care products said Tuesday the talc-based powder will still be sold outside the U.S. and Canada.

J&J faces about 19,400 cases alleging its talcum powder caused users to develop ovarian cancer and so far have had 12 wins, 15 losses and seven mistrials.

According to Black America Web, “All of the losses have either been overturned on appeal or are still being appealed.” Johnson and Johnson has always maintained that their talc baby powder is safe and doesn’t cause cancer.

I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been colorful, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
