On Wednesday, Johnson & Johnson (J&J) revealed that it had received federal subpoenas related to alleged asbestos contamination in its signature Baby Powder product line. The inquiries come as Reuters reported in December that J&J knew for decades about the contamination, and kept much of this information from regulators and the public. The Reuters story continues to garner attention from other media outlets, including an NBC Nightly News report this week on the inquiries. Johnson & Johnson has denied any wrongdoing and stands behind the safety of its products.
