Johnson & Johnson to stop selling talc-based baby powder worldwide

Johnson & Johnson (J&J) will stop making and selling its talc-based baby powder around the world from next year.
 
The announcement comes more than two years after the healthcare company ended sales of the product in the US.
 
J&J faces tens of thousands of lawsuits from women who allege its talcum powder contained asbestos and caused them to develop ovarian cancer.
 
But the company reiterated its view that decades of independent research shows the product is safe to use.
