Women request samples in Talcum Powder Lawsuit
Women in Johnson & Johnson Talc Case Request Samples
August 28, 2017
A group of New Jersey women involved in a Multi-District Litigation (MDL) case have requested samples of the talcum powder products over which they have filed their suits.
In the hotly contested case, Johnson & Johnson, the maker of the talcum powder and baby powder that are at the heart of the lawsuit, has said that any samples of the product would necessarily be destroyed during the process that tests them for carcinogenic content. The plaintiffs allege that J&J has no proof that the samples will be destroyed in testing.
Plaintiffs say that Johnson & Johnson has failed to explain any knowledge of the testing procedure, and that the company alleges that the plaintiffs have “conspired” with state courts to deny J&J the ability to test the products themselves.
Indeed, the plaintiffs have not yet even formally requested any samples, which, should they be provided, the plaintiffs assert, would not be destroyed entirely in testing.
Some 2000 cases are pending in the wide-ranging, closely watched MDL, in which the central allegation is that Johnson & Johnson’s talc-containing products are the cause of the plaintiffs’ cases of ovarian cancer.
Johnson & Johnson has lost four or five talc trials in Missouri, and recently lost a $417 million decision in California over the talc-cancer link.
