Johnson & Johnson is recalling bottles of baby powder after the FDA found them to contain small traces of asbestos. The company is recalling about 33,000 bottles that shipped last year as part of Lot #22318RB, out of an "abundance of caution". Johnson & Johnson is currently facing thousands of lawsuits from people claiming they developed cancer linked to asbestos exposure after using its talc-based products. [PR News Wire]
