Johnson & Johnson recalls 33,000 bottles of baby powder in the US

Health care giant Johnson & Johnson has recalled 33,000 bottles of baby powder in the US, after health regulators found trace amounts of asbestos in a bottle purchased online.
 
The company said it had launched an investigation and repeated prior tests have not found asbestos.
 
The recall comes as the firm is facing thousands of lawsuits from people who claim its talc products caused cancer.
 
Johnson & Johnson has strongly denied those accusations.
 
The firm said it had initiated the voluntary recall of one lot of baby powder, produced and shipped in the US in 2018, out of "an abundance of caution".
