Parents, Doctors, Nurses to Johnson & Johnson: Make Safer Baby Products

Concerned about cancer-causing chemicals, more than 40 organizations representing 1.7 million parents, health care providers and environmental health advocates delivered a letter today to Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) urging the company to remove toxic ingredients from its popular baby products.  (more) 

Victory for Safer Baby Products

"On Monday, November 1st, 2011, the campaign sent Johnson & Johnson a letter, signed by about 25 environmental, medical and other groups representing about 3.5 million people in the U.S. and other countries. It urges the company to publicly commit by Nov. 15 to removing the chemicals from all personal care products worldwide." - Associated Press

Through meetings, letters, calls and grassroots mobilization, we've been pushing Johnson & Johnson for safer baby products for more than two years, and this week the company answered. In response to our report, Baby's Tub Is Still Toxic, J&J released a statement saying it's phasing two carcinogenic chemicals out of its baby products worldwide: formaldehyde-releasing preservatives and 1,4-dioxane.
