Johnson & Johnson: Tell The Talc Truth!

This petition had 570 supporters

On Feb. 22, 2016, a jury found Johnson & Johnson liable for the ovarian cancer death of a woman who had used the company’s talcum powder products for more than 35 years.

During the trial, internal documents came to light that showed the company was warned of the link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer by its own medical consultants. Despite this, J&J failed to warn consumers of the risk.

Nobody – other than the jurors – had ever seen the incriminating documents. That includes the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These documents comprise of reports on medical studies as well as internal letters and memos about talc dangers.

In spite of the jury verdict, Johnson & Johnson continues to publicly deny the risk of ovarian cancer associated with its talc-containing products. The public is entitled to have access to these internal documents so they can decide for themselves.

This petition calls on Alex Gorsky, Chairman and CEO of Johnson & Johnson, to make these internal documents public, and to publish them on the company’s website where they can be easily accessed by consumers.
