What Companies are Involved in the Talcum Powder Cancer Lawsuit?

Video Transcript

Our firm handles two kinds of talcum powder litigations; one litigation deals with the female reproductive system that’s the one I’m going to focus on but there are also mesothelioma claimants as a result of the use of talcum powder they’re just far fewer in number. For the talcum powder cases where talcum powder was used below the waist the primary defendant for those cases is Johnson and Johnson. Johnson and Johnson manufactured baby powder and shower powder with talc in it for many years and they did it for decades after they knew that the talc was dangerous and could potentially cause cancer. There may be other talcum powders that women used on their bodies in particular below the waist and our firm is willing to consider those cases. We do Sue other talc manufacturers, talc powder product manufacturers, we sue a lot of them in the mesothelioma litigation. It just so happens that for the most part with the reproductive cases Johnson and Johnson was used on babies. Johnson and Johnson was used for the application that we’re talking about; however there may be other manufacturers involved.
