Talcum Powder Lawsuit Plaintiffs Claim Unsealed Documents Show Johnson & Johnson Knew of Talc- Asbestos Danger in 1970s, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Women's Health Weekly -- Plaintiffs pursuing talcum powder lawsuits in Missouri state court claim that newly unsealed documents show that Johnson & Johnson has known since the 1970s that its talc-based powders contained asbestos fibers, which could increase the risk of ovarian cancer in women who used the products for daily feminine hygiene. (Case No. 1522-CC10417, Circuit Court, City of St. Louis, Missouri)

"Our Firm is representing women who allegedly developed ovarian cancer due to Johnson & Johnson's talcum powder products. These documents are of great interest to our clients, and we will continue to monitor the Missouri litigation for any other developments that could impact their claims," says Sandy A. Liebhard, a partner at Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective medical devices, drugs and consumer products. The Firm is offering free legal reviews to women who were diagnosed with ovarian cancer that may be associated with Johnson & Johnson'sBaby Powder and Shower-to-Shower products (see also Bernstein Liebhard Llp).
