Johnson & Johnson baby powder recalled over asbestos concerns

Johnson & Johnson is recalling some of its baby power after trace amounts of asbestos was discovered.

The voluntary recall is limited to one lot of Johnson’s baby powder produced and shipped in the United States in 2018.

It’s about 33,000 bottles.

The asbestos was found in samples from a single bottle purchased from an online retailer.

Reuters published a report last December, alleging the company knew for a decades that cancer-causing asbestos could be found in its talc.

J&J has repeatedly said its talc products are safe, and that decades of studies have shown them to be asbestos-free and that they do not cause cancer.
