Johnson & Johnson Faces Thousands of Lawsuits Over Baby Powder, Defective Drugs and More

Johnson & Johnson is a well-known household name that has been around for decades. They’re responsible for many of the baby care items that parents and families enjoy, but they’re also known for many other products as well.

Recently, more than 50,000 lawsuits were brought against Johnson & Johnson for a variety of reasons. Several of them were because of the use of their baby powder, and the fact that it led to many instances of cancer. Other lawsuits included:

• Metal-on-metal hip implants that released toxic particles into the body.

• Insulin pumps that were able to be hacked to deliver deadly doses of insulin into the body.

• Transvaginal mesh implants that caused a great deal of harm to thousands of women.

• Xarelto, a medication that causes blood thinning, but that does not have an antidote. 10,000 people have been injured because of it.

While Johnson & Johnson may have become a staple in American culture, it’s clear that something needs to be done to hold them accountable for these injuries and deaths.
