Baby Powder Recall Issued over Asbestos Fears

Johnson & Johnson has issued a voluntary recall of about 33,000 bottles of its Johnson’s Baby Powder.

The recall is in response to an FDA test indicating trace amounts of asbestos contamination. The company says the bottles were sold online, but the recall announcement does not specify which retailer.

They say they are recalling the products out of an “abundance of caution.”  It comes at a tough time for the company, which is currently facing lawsuits from 15,500 people who claim Johnson’s products gave them cancer. The company insists their products are safe.
