Johnson & Johnson Knew Their Baby Powder Had Toxic Asbestos and Did Nothing

It turns out the ubiquitous talcum powder that Johnson & Johnson has been selling for decades is deadly. It can cause cancer and respiratory problems because it has asbestos in it. Worse yet, the company knew about this since the 1970s and continued to sell the product that is used largely on children. 

Sign now if you think Johnson & Johnson should do more to make up for the way this product harmed people.

Parents used their baby powder on children for diaper rash and other ailments. No one would knowingly put something potentially toxic on their child. Johnson & Johnson spent 40 years misleading the public and hiding the results of internal testing on their product.

They could start a fund to help people suffering from afflictions caused by the product, or any number of other actions to try to atone for this horrible thing.

One way or another, they must be held accountable. There are thousands of lawsuits in the works but doing the right thing because you have to and because you should are two different things. 

If Johnson & Johnson ever wants to be trusted by the public again, they must do more.

Please sign on to tell them to take responsibility, apologize and take action to help people they harmed before a court tells them to.
