Baby talc,Johnson and Johnson,

 For many people, this news will be a shock in India that the famous Johnson and Johnson company is fined 18.8 million dollars for the cancerous substance in its powder. The company is already struggling with a similar lawsuit in which it has to pay billions of dollars to the victims who have used baby products, especially baby powder. The company has already decided to shut its baby powder business worldwide but the company says that it has no plans to remove it from the Indian market. The Johnson and Johnson baby powder is blamed to contain asbestos which is known to cause cancer but the company denies it. 

In India, Johnson and Johnson's baby powder have enjoyed supremacy in the market for last many decades. Indians have trusted this brand blindly for their new brons kids. Despite all the acquisitions around the world, Johnson and Johnson still enjoys a majority share in the Indian market. Many new brands of baby products have emerged in the market but Johnson and Johnson is still leading. Many educated and informed people have started avoiding this brand because of its legal battle in the US about cancerous substances in its products. 

The company has said that it will discontinue its baby powder globally this year but there is no concrete news about their plans for India. We can easily find the baby products of Johnson and Johnson in India including its baby powder. As a responsible company, it is the duty of Johnson and Johnson to remove its baby products from India too if they are removing them from other countries too.
