For decades, women have been using talcum powder for feminine hygiene. Companies that sell talcum powder, often sold as “baby powder” or “body powder,” have promoted it for this purpose. Numerous studies have shown that talcum powder, when used by women for feminine hygiene purposes, can cause ovarian cancer. Companies that sell talcum powder have known about the link between the product they sell and ovarian cancer for years. However, these companies have refused to adequately warn their customers of the danger that is posed.
Recently, a St. Louis jury awarded $72 million dollars to the family of a woman who died from ovarian cancer. The woman had used talcum powder for years. Another case resulted in a $55 million dollar verdict.
The attorneys of Sauter Sullivan need your help in spreading the word about this dangerous product and the injustice that has been perpetrated by talcum powder manufacturers. Please tell friends, relatives, neighbors, and co-workers about the dangers posed by talcum powder. If you or anyone you know have ever been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and have a history of using talcum powder, please call us immediately at 314-768-6800.
