J&J to stop selling baby powder talc in US, Canada amid concerns

May 20, 2020 17:07 IST

American consumer products and pharmaceutical company has announced that it will stop selling its talc Baby Powder in US and Canada. J&J has stated that this is due to a fall in demand owing to what it claims to be misinformation regarding the safety of the product. With over 19,000 lawsuits from consumers and survivors claiming that the talc products contain cancer-causing asbestos, J&J's said it “remains steadfastly confident in the safety of talc-based Johnson’s Baby Powder.” J&J will continue to sell cornstarch-based baby powder in the US, and will sell both its talc and cornstarch-based products in other global markets.
