ALBUQUERQUE — Fifteen women from New Mexico have joined a class-action lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson claiming their talcum powder caused them to develop ovarian cancer, according to the Albuquerque Journal.
Of those joining the suit, two of them are estates representing a deceased loved one.
Over 1,100 women have sued the drug manufacturer so far, with more reportedly to come. The lawsuits claim that Johnson & Johnson should have alerted its consumer of the ovarian cancer risk by including a warning label alerting its consumers to refrain from using the powder on genitals.
Suits site more than 20 studies that have shown an increase in ovarian cancer risk when using talcum powder on underwear and genitals as opposed to those who do not. This is significant as Johnson & Johnson had specific talcum powders marketed specifically for female genital use.
Johnson and Johnson has responded to these lawsuits with a video and statement in which it stated: “We also know that some epidemiology studies have reported an association between talc and ovarian cancer. However, various governmental and non-governmental agencies as well as other expert panels have reviewed and analyzed all available data, and none have concluded that talc can cause cancer.”
As settlements are reached, more lawsuits are expected to be filed against Johnson & Johnson in the near future.
