A verdict in the Missouri awarded $US5.4 million in compensatory damages to a woman in Virginia and expounded that  J & J was 99 per cent at fault as woman developed cancer after four decades of daily use of the talc-containing products produced by J & J, specifically well-known Johnson’s Baby Powder and the Shower to Shower Powder.

Johnson & Johnson was ordered by the St. Louis jury to pay more than $110 million to Virginia woman who blamed her ovarian cancer on the company’s talcum products.

Imerys Talc America, which provided the talc to the J&J, was ordered by the jury to pay about $100,000. Imerys Talc is a unit of the Paris-based Imerys SA.

Plaintiff Lois Slemp, 62, stated that she used the J&J’s baby powder for more than 40 years before her diagnosis with the ovarian cancer in the year 2012. J&J sold its Shower to Shower brand in the year 2012.

 

While the US FDA encourages the manufacturers to remove 1,4-dioxane, it is not required by the federal law.

Earlier this month, US Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand called on US FDA to ban it, saying it doesn’t have a real purpose in the cosmetics.

US Senators Charles Schumer  added that,’The fact that the 1,4-dioxane, a potentially dangerous chemical, is hiding out in everyday products expected to make us clean is very disturbing, and to make matters worse, the likely carcinogens like this one can be even more harmful to the kids’.

Number of companies have agreed to stop using the 1,4-dioxane including the Johnson & Johnson, which reformulated its baby bath products in the year 2014.
