More than two years after stopping sales in the United States and Canada, Johnson & Johnson announced on Thursday that it would stop selling its talc-based baby powder globally in 2023.
According to a statement sent to Fox Business, “As part of a worldwide portfolio assessment, we have made the commercial decision to transition to an all cornstarch-based baby powder portfolio.”
Johnson & Johnson declared in 2020 that it will stop selling its talc-based Baby Powder in the US and Canada because of “misleading” information about the product’s safety.
About 38,000 lawsuits have been filed against the corporation by consumers and the survivors of those who have died from cancer, claiming that asbestos, a proven carcinogen, was present in the talc goods.
