Do you know what is in your personal care products? Most of us do not. Not because we are not cautious and don't care, but because skin care products and other cosmetics are not a regulated industry. As a result, you won't find warning labels or complete ingredient lists on these packages.

With the recent Johnson & Johnson $72 million verdict awarded to the family of Jackie Fox who died of ovarian cancer, consumers are becoming more aware of the dangerous and toxic chemicals in skin care products. This law suit was brought in 1997 when Jackie Fox first sued Johnson & Johnson. Her son took over as plaintiff after she passed away from ovarian cancer in 2015. Jackie was among more than 1,200 women who were suing Johnson and Johnson for failure to warn against the dangers associated with use of their products.

The link between talc and ovarian cancer first came to light when talc was found in ovarian tissue samples taken by experts from women with ovarian cancer. When it comes to Johnson and Johnson talc products, studies going as far back as 1982 reveal that there was a connection between the use of talc powder and ovarian cancer. Even with this knowledge Johnson & Johnson continued to sell their products without a warning label. A 1997 internal memo from Johnson & Johnson's medical consultant states "anybody who denies the risk of using hygenic talc and ovarian cancer is denying the obvious in the face of all evidence to the contrary" as reported by The Associated Press.

If you or someone you know have developed ovarian or other kinds of cancer resulting from using a Johnson & Johnson product our attorneys would like to speak with you. You may be able to file a lawsuit against the company that manufactured the product you used. Contact us here for a free consultation.
