Join other brave, St. Louis women in the fight against corporate negligence
In February 2016, a jury awarded $72 million to Jackie Fox, an Alabama mother who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using Johnson & Johnson baby powder products for a number of decades. Although Fox had passed away from her disease during the legal proceedings, her son finished the case, finally finding justice for his lost mother.
Sadly and shockingly, Fox is just one of an untold number of American women who thought that using talcum powder as a feminine hygiene product was safe. But the truth is that numerous studies over the past 30 years have correlated talc with ovarian cancer – and that behemoth companies like Johnson & Johnson have not done nearly enough to warn consumers or prevent more cancer deaths.
At Malman Law, we understand the anger, stress, sadness, confusion, and worry that comes with a cancer diagnosis that could and should have been prevented. We deeply believe that medical and pharmaceutical companies should be held fully accountable for their negligent actions in St. Louis, and that their victims be fully compensated for all damages, including:
Over the last four decades, organizations including the American Cancer Society (ACS) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have voiced concerns about the safety and health risks of talcum powder when used as a personal hygiene product for women. These concerns were based on the results of 16 separate studies, including:
Despite a large amount of evidence to the contrary, Johnson & Johnson still insists that their product "meets the highest quality, purity and compliance standards,” and that ovarian cancer is a complex disease with no known causes.

According to the Associated Press, there are currently more than 1,200 civil suits pending against Johnson & Johnson related to its talcum products, including Johnson’s Baby Powder and Johnson & Johnson’s Shower to Shower Absorbent Baby Powder. In all of these cases, women have used baby powder for personal hygiene for years, with no knowledge that there is scientific data showing it to be a carcinogen.
These women are not greedy, litigation-happy, or looking for a payday. These women are fighting for their lives – and determined to make Johnson & Johnson responsible for their actions (and inactions) regarding baby powder.
Filing a talcum powder lawsuit doesn’t just help you and your family when faced with your diagnosis, but it helps hold pharmaceutical companies accountable for their actions. It also prevents what happened to you from happening to other women.
Do not continue to wonder if you have a talcum powder case, or if you deserve justice and compensation.
