Our office has recently received a number of calls from people concerned about exposure to asbestos from using Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder and other types of body talc.
There have been reports in the media regarding recent trials where juries have found Johnson & Johnson liable for selling asbestos contaminated baby powder and other body talcs that were contaminated with asbestos fibers which caused people to develop mesothelioma. McDermott & Hickey is currently representing several mesothelioma victims who were exposed to asbestos contaminated body powder manufactured and sold by several different companies.
Evidence has been uncovered in corporate records which show that not only was the talc used to make these body powder products contaminated with asbestos fibers but that the companies were fully aware of this and failed to disclose the danger to the government and consumers. If you or a loved one used body powders in the 1970’2 and 1980 and is suffering from mesothelioma please feel free to call us for a free consultation.
