Johnson & Johnson will stop selling its talcum baby powder worldwide by 2023. The company says it has been troubled by the legal battle. The company’s powder has already been discontinued in the US and Canada a year ago.

In fact, it was alleged that this baby powder causes cancer and after this thousands of cases were filed against the company worldwide. Not only this, there was a huge drop in the sales of the product after the cancer apprehension report came to the fore.

19,400 cases registered against J&J
At present, 19,400 court cases are registered against J&J. It has been alleged that people have got ovarian cancer due to its talcum powder. This leads to mesothelioma cancer that attacks the lungs and other organs. So far, in the cases in which the court’s decision has come, the company has won in 12, while the decision came against it in 15.

The company is telling powder safe
The company itself did research on its powder and claimed that its talcum baby powder is safe and does not cause cancer. J&J said Thursday that it has taken a “commercial decision” to use cornstarch instead of talcum powder for all of its baby powder products after assessing it. The health group that keeps the product safe has faced nearly a decade of lawsuits alleging that its talc-based baby powder has been tied up to hide cancer risks.

The company is being forced to pay
In the court filing, J&J’s lawyer has stated that the company has paid more than $1 billion (about Rs 7968 crore) in the last five years for litigation. According to the company’s bankruptcy filing, J&J has been forced to pay around $3.5 billion (Rs 28 thousand crore) so far to settle settlement matters.

A 2018 jury ruling out of state court in St. Louis eventually forced J&J to pay $2.5 billion (Rs 20 thousand crore) to 20 women who targeted its baby powder for their ovarian cancer. did. Both the Missouri Supreme Court and the US Supreme Court refused to overturn the decision.

Powder has been sold since 1894
Johnson Baby Powder, being sold since 1894, became the company’s symbol product due to being family-friendly. Since 1999, the company’s internal baby products division used to do its marketing representation. It consists primarily of baby powder, as in J&J’s “#1 asset.”
