Egyptian media revealed that the American company Johnson & Johnson continues to sell its products in the Egyptian market, despite its involvement in spreading cancer in the world because of its carcinogenic products.
And the “Cairo 24” website said that the Amazon Egypt website showed that the product is sold inside Egypt on the Amazon platform at a value of 225 pounds, in addition to 26 pounds for the delivery value of 200 grams, despite the company’s announcement that it will stop producing baby powder all over the world.
Johnson & Johnson announced that it would pay $8.9 billion over the next 25 years to settle allegations that baby talcum powder and other talc products cause cancer.
The company indicated, in a disclosure to the Securities Commission, that its subsidiary, LTL Management, had filed for bankruptcy protection, according to CNBC.
The company’s vice president of litigation stated that resolving the issue through the proposed reorganization plan is more fair and effective.
He stressed that this solution allows for timely compensation to the plaintiffs, and enables the company to continue to focus on its commitment to profoundly impact health and humanity.
And in 2020, Johnson & Johnson said it would stop selling talc-containing baby powder in the United States and Canada because demand fell in the wake of what it called misinformation about the product’s safety amid a number of legal issues.
At the time, the company said it would continue to sell talc-based baby powder in the rest of the world.
Although Johnson & Johnson agreed to pay the damages, it indicated that it still believes those claims are flimsy and lack scientific merit.
The company ended sales of its talcum powder globally this year, after it faced thousands of lawsuits from customers alleging that its talcum powder products caused cancer.
Johnson & Johnson paid $7.4 billion in litigation costs between 2002 and 2021.
On August 12, Johnson & Johnson decided to stop the production and sale of baby powder that contains these all over the world, starting in 2023.
This announcement comes more than two years after the company stopped selling the product in the United States.
Johnson & Johnson faces tens of thousands of lawsuits from women who claim talcum powder causes them to develop ovarian cancer, but the company has reiterated its view that decades of independent research shows the product is safe to use.
The company’s baby powder has been sold for nearly 130 years and has become a symbol of the company’s image.
Baby powder is used to prevent allergic reactions to diapers and for other cosmetic uses, including as a dry shampoo.
