      Measuring weight in a unit of volume - can't really get any more imprecise.

      •  

        Depends on the density of the powder, volume is an outlier then. 😊

      I thought most "baby" powders didn't use talc anymore because of that reason? Now mostly corn starch instead.

        First thing under ingredients on the label: Talc

        Anyone know why it's pulled from US and Canada but still sold here?

        Mods - can we pull listings of talc based products? Same way as we shouldn't promote smoking tobacco etc.

          Many things that are banned or discontinued in the US and EU are still sold here. Fewer protections and money talks.

          Titanium dioxide in most toothpastes in Australia as an example. Colgate pulled that ingredient in the US but continued to sell products with TiO₂ in Australia, only recently introducing a TiO₂ free toothpaste in parallel.

          Talc based products are banned in the EU but not the US - J&J just pulled the product because of a billion $ lawsuit. No such litigious opportunities in Australia.

          Wow.

          Maybe I shouldn't be so surprised. I met someone who was a J&J lobbyist - their specific job was ensuring government policies were friendly towards J&J interests. I think they were one of a few. I'd expect lots of big corps would have this type of bullying power. Go free market!!

      In the interest of balance and at the risk of this turning into a heated debate (which is not my intent), the Cancer Council has an opposing view…

    J&J pulling these powder products off shelves in USA and about to choose a stretegic way of bankruptcy to avoid law suits (split into two, then bankrupt one with law suits as cutting tail of bad business, remains in another one)

            @poulay: yep :), sad that we Aussies always are treated as dumpie ground for things that are outdated, pulled off shelves, polluted etc.

    This is not a bargain!
    Why would anyone support a company who cares 0% about all the ongoing deaths they have caused with their asbestos tainted talcum powder (which they knew about for years without disclosing this) and are now attempting to stop all compensation to anyone affected?
    This is mass murder and the executives should rot in jail or worse

    •  

      who cares 0% about all the ongoing deaths they have caused

      a bit like the COVID virus?

      •  

        And we have a lot of supporters of the country that started the pandemic.
