Four women from Washington and Oregon filed lawsuits against the popular baby-brand company Johnson & Johnson. They say the baby powder led to diagnoses of ovarian cancer, according to their attorneys.
One of the women died in Oregon from the illness in 2015.
“If we use it for our babies, why would any consumer question its safety? Women and athletes are encouraged to use these products to stay fresh,” said attorney Cheryl L. Snow of the Law Offices of James S. Rogers based in Seattle.
Attorneys say Johnson & Johnson knew the links to ovarian cancer and the mineral talc in their powder products linking to ovarian cancer.
“Unfortunately, Johnson & Johnson consumers were never warned about the dangers of these products when used regularly for decades,” said Attorney James S. Rogers.
