There are pending cases in New York, New Jersey, and South Dakota involving plaintiffs who have brought suit against the manufacturers of talc products and mining companies. They are alleging charges ranging from putting unsafe, cancer-causing products on the market to fraud, conspiracy and destroying evidence in an attempt to avoid prosecution.
In the New Jersey lawsuit, evidence has been allegedly uncovered that shows that BASF and their legal counsel lied to victims about carcinogenic substances found in talk products made by BASF. Further, the company gathered any evidence of asbestos being found in its products containing talc in order to protect itself from plaintiffs who were victims of asbestos-induced diseases such as mesothelioma and certain forms of cancer.
Ultimately, if a company causes harm, illness or death because a person used their products in good faith, that company should be held responsible. That a company had prior knowledge of even the potential of harm and then attempted to cover it up is inexcusable.
