To date, Johnson & Johnson has faced one major lawsuit in U.S. District Court in which a plaintiff alleged she developed ovarian cancer as a result of using talcum powder. The lawsuit was concluded in October of 2013 in favor of Ms. Deane Berg, the plaintiff. (Deane Berg v. Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc., U.S. District Court, District of South Dakota, Case No. 09-4179) According to court documents, the jury in this case found that Ms. Berg’s diagnosis of ovarian cancer was in fact linked to her daily use of products containing talcum powder, including Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower.
Talc particles may enter the female reproductive system through direct dusting or through the use of feminine products coated in baby powder. According to a 2011 study entitled “Perineal use of talcum powder and endometrial cancer risk,” cancer researchers believe that once inside the body, talc can migrate to the ovaries where the particles are thought to cause an inflammatory response. The inflammation yields conditions that are conducive to the proliferation of cancer cells, accounting for the increase in risk of cancer.
