Johnson and Johnson on Tuesday said it would stop selling its talc-based Johnson's Baby Powder in the United States and Canada as part of a broad reassessment of its consumer product portfolio prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

J&J faces lawsuits from consumers claiming its talc products, including Johnson's Baby Powder, caused their cancer, but J&J said it remains confident in the product's safety.
