Martin & Jones Investigating Mesothelioma From Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder

Johnson & Johnson has announced a recall of approximately 33,000 bottles of its Johnson’s Baby Powder, after testing by the FDA revealed the presence of asbestos in samples of the product.

Until this recall, Johnson & Johnson has repeatedly claimed that its Johnson’s Baby Powder was asbestos-free.  In 2018, the company took out a full page ad in the New York Times, stating that the company had scientific evidence that its talc is safe.  The ad said in part, “If we had any reasons to believe our talc was unsafe, it would be off our shelves.”  Despite the company’s previous claims that its talc was safe, juries in multiple trials have found that asbestos was present in Johnson’s Baby Powder and caused malignant mesothelioma in past users of the product.

Martin & Jones is currently pursuing cases for clients who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma after using Johnson’s Baby Powder.  Read more about the recall here.

“We would like to express our gratitude to you (Hunt Willis) for accepting our case. First of all, when I called this law firm, a very sweet and kind lady answered the telephone and gave me assurance by asking and going over the accident with me, while my husband was in the hospital. I felt assured I was doing the right thing for us. She was so helpful in so many ways. What a professional lady. Secondly, we are much pleased that you have settled this case with the insurance company to receive the proper amount to assist us in so many ways. My husband and I are very happy with you and the firm in handling our case. You made us have confidence in your professional and integrity along with your assistant Ms. Routh, when you both came to see us in our home, in which we saw your compassion and thoughtfulness at that time. We will never forget what you have done for us, and we thank the lord for directing me to contact this firm. I’m glad I did.”
