J&J Baby Powder Pulled from CVS, Rite Aid and Walmart

FRIDAY, Oct. 25, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Sales of 22-ounce bottles of Johnson & Johnson baby powder have been halted at CVS, Rite Aid and Walmart.

Last week, Johnson & Johnson recalled 33,000 bottles of baby powder after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found trace amounts of asbestos in a single bottle bought online, CBS News reported.

The company called the recall a precautionary measure and says its baby powder does not contain asbestos.

Johnson & Johnson faces thousands of lawsuits claiming that its talc products contain asbestos, CBS News reported.
