Investigations

Ademi & O’Reilly, LLP announces an investigation of Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) for possible violations of securities laws.

The investigation focuses on whether J & J violated securities laws by failing to tell investors that its raw talc and finished powders tested positive for asbestos, and that J & J executives knew about the problem but failed to disclose it to regulators or the public.  Specifically, according to reports based on J & J’s internal documents, J & J’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower talc, longtime brands, may have been linked to ovarian cancer.
