Johnson & Johnson has agreed to pay $700 million in a settlement to resolve allegations that it misled customers about the safety of its talcum-based powder products.

The company reached the agreement with 42 U.S. states and Washington D.C.

“Attorney General Kwame Raoul, as part of a bipartisan group of 43 attorneys general, today announced a nationwide settlement with Johnson & Johnson (J&J) to resolve allegations the company deceptively promoted and misled consumers in advertisements related to the safety and purity of some talcum powder products, including baby powder and body powder,” a press release from Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul’s office stated.

“Consumers rely on accurate information when making decisions about which products to purchase for their families. Any company – no matter how large – must be held accountable when laws protecting consumers are broken and their trust is violated. I will continue to work to ensure consumers are protected from false advertising, scams and dangerous products in the marketplace,” Raoul said.


Per CBS News:

As part of the settlement, which is still pending judicial approval, the health products giant will permanently stop the manufacturing, promotion and sale of all of its baby powder and other body and cosmetic products that contain talcum powder. That includes Johnson’s Baby Powder and Johnson & Johnson’s Shower to Shower. The company decided to pull talc-based powders off the market in North America in 2020.

J&J will make four settlement payments, starting at the end of July, to 42 states and Washington, D.C., according to the settlement.

In a statement, J&J’s worldwide vice president of litigation, Erik Hass, said the company “continues to pursue several paths to achieve a comprehensive and final resolution of the talc litigation. That progress includes the finalization of a previously announced agreement that the Company reached with a consortium of 43 State Attorneys Generals to resolve their talc claims. We will continue to address the claims of those who do not want to participate in our contemplated consensual bankruptcy resolution through litigation or settlement.”

“Today, Attorney General Aaron Ford announced that he and 42 other attorneys general have reached a $700 million nationwide settlement to resolve allegations related to the marketing of Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder and body powder products that contained talc,” the Nevada Attorney General’s office stated.

“I, alongside 42 other states, reached a $700 million settlement with Johnson & Johnson, with nearly $15 million going to Maryland, regarding allegations of deceptive marketing. Certain talc-based products were marketed as safe, but some were tainted with asbestos, possibly causing serious health issues. My office is dedicated to safeguarding Marylanders from harmful products,” Maryland Attorney General Anthony Brown announced.

NBC News reports:

J&J did not admit wrongdoing in settling with the states, which were led by Florida, North Carolina and Texas, and has said its talc products are safe and do not cause cancer. The company announced a settlement in principle in January.

“This is a major advancement for consumer product safety,” Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody said in a statement.

J&J still faces tens of thousands of talc lawsuits, and a class action accusing the New Brunswick, New Jersey-based company of fraudulently hiding their dangers from shareholders.

As of March 31, about 61,490 people were still suing J&J over talc. Most were women with ovarian cancer, while a smaller number had mesothelioma, a type of cancer linked to asbestos.

J&J stopped selling talc-based baby powder globally last year, switching to corn starch as the main ingredient. It has maintained that its products do not contain asbestos.

The company has twice tried to resolve the litigation by placing into bankruptcy a subsidiary it created to contain its talc liabilities, but courts rebuffed both attempts.

On May 1, J&J proposed a $6.48 billion settlement to resolve most of the litigation through a third bankruptcy filing. It has set aside an $11 billion reserve to cover all talc liabilities.



J&J Enters $9 BILLION Baby Cancer Settlement

This is gonna make you sick, at least if you have ever had babies….and ever used Baby Powder on them from J&J.

According to new reports, it was alleged that the Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder caused cancer (how nice) and now the company is proposing paying out $8.9 BILLION to settle those claims.

We should be clear a settlement is not an admission of guilt or liability but it sure doesn’t look good!

Watch this short clip:

From the NY Times:

From Axios:

Johnson & Johnson said Tuesday it’s offering up to $8.9 billion to resolve lawsuits accusing the company of selling baby powder that caused cancer — an allegation that J&J has repeatedly denied.

Why it matters: J&J faces tens of thousands of lawsuits from people and their survivors related to the company’s talc-based powder.

Driving the news: J&J disclosed the offer Tuesday in connection with its decision to re-file its subsidiary LTL Management in Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

The Third Circuit Court of Appeals in January dismissed the original Chapter 11 petition made by LTL, the subsidiary J&J created for the purpose of housing its talc liabilities and filing for bankruptcy.
Details: The $8.9 billion in payments to alleged victims would be paid over 25 years “to resolve all the current and future talc claims,” J&J said in a statement.

The company, which originally offered $2 billion, said it “has secured commitments from over 60,000 current claimants” to support the deal.
J&J noted that it is not admitting wrongdoing — but fighting the cases “would take decades and impose significant costs” with “most claimants never receiving any compensation,” said J&J’s worldwide vice president of litigation, Erik Haas.

What they’re saying: Law firms representing what they described as a majority of the victims released a statement saying their clients are supporting the proposed deal.

“This settlement will provide expeditious, substantial and fair compensation to claimants who cannot afford to wait any longer for a resolution,” the victims’ representatives said Tuesday in a statement.

Makes me absolutely sick to think parents had no idea.

What is wrong with these companies???

Keep reading, I have a very important announcement for you below on what YOU can do to keep you and your family and your kids safe!  So important!  

More on that in just a minute below…

I love what Chris Greene says here, he’s spot on:

Think it’s just a one-off situation?

Just an “accident”?

Sorry folks, it’s happening ALL OVER THE PLACE with these big companies.

From Baby Powder we move to Spices.

Think the Spice Rack is safe?

Not unless you like eating literal rat poison!

For real, check this out:

WARNING: Arsenic, Cadmium, and Lead Found In Major Brand Name Spices!

Heads up folks!

This is a major consumer products alert…

Do you love to cook with spices?

Of course, who doesn’t?

Variety is the spice of life, and spices are the, uhhhh, spice of cooking!

But what happens when you reach for the Onion Powder or the Oregano, and along with those you get a heavy dose of Arsenic?

Arsenic would otherwise be known as literal “rat poison”.

Or Cadmium, which is a heavy metal.

Or Lead!

You know how we can no longer use lead-based-paint or leaded gasoline because of how toxic it is to humans?

What if the big companies had been putting it in your spices all along and you didn’t even know?

What if one of the reasons you constantly feel tired, slow and unmotivated is because you’re slowly being poisoned by what you eat?

It’s a Red Alert 🚨 situation, and I’m here to not only give you the bad news but also to give you a solution!

I never like to leave you with only the bad news, so keep reading and I’ll give you the solution to fix this for yourself and your family.

Check this out:

Literally poisoning Americans:

Maybe you’re not just tired, maybe you’re being slowly poisoned like that one episode of Dateline I saw where the woman poisoned her husband by feeding him small doses of antifreeze each day for a whole year.

Anyone else see that episode?

Except the wife is played by the Big Consumer Goods Companies that hate you and you’re the dying husband.

Sorry folks, I’m not making this stuff up, I’m just reporting the news.

According to this report, OVER ONE-THIRD of 126 large big-brand products tested had EXCESSIVE heavy metal levels:

FOUR Lawsuits have been filed already:

From Popular Mechanics:

In new research, Consumer Reports tested a total of 126 products from stores like Walmart and Trader Joe’s and found that 40 “had high enough levels of arsenic, lead, and cadmium combined, on average, to pose a health concern for children when regularly consumed in typical serving sizes.” Beyond big-brand names like McCormick and private labels, the offenders also include spices and herbs from the beloved Wauwatosa, Wisconsin-based brand Penzeys.

It’s important to note that there is no safe amount of lead, especially for children. That’s because our bodies don’t have a way to digest heavy metals, so they can easily accumulate in the body, physically interfering with other processes. (Remember when Entourage’s Jeremy Piven blamed a public outburst on mercury poisoning because he’d been subsisting on only sushi?)

“In children, [lead] can affect brain development, increasing the risk for behavioral problems and lower IQ,” Consumer Reports explains in the report, published last month. “In adults, it can contribute to central nervous system problems, reproductive problems, and hypertension, and can damage kidney and immune function.”

Lead in foodstuffs is usually tested through a standard protocol laid out by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), known colloquially as “EAM 4.7.” EAM stands for Elemental Analysis Manual for Food and Related Products. “This resource serves as a reference, for analysts at the FDA and around the world, providing not only general analytical information and procedures and detailed laboratory methods, but also helpful notes from analysts’ experiences using these methods,” the FDA explains online. In this testing, an acid chemically “digests” foods before they’re fed through a mass spectrometer machine that identifies the chemical signatures of different elements.

Which Herbs and Spices Contained High Levels of Lead?

Consumer Reports tested a total of 126 products across 38 brands, using two or three samples for each product. They ranked products from least to most concerning with the following system: no concern, some concern, moderate concern, and high concern. Here are the products that ranked as moderate or high concern:

  • La Flor Ground Oregano
  • La Flor Ground Turmeric
  • Happy Belly (Amazon) Ground Thyme
  • Spice Islands Sweet Basil
  • Tone’s Ground Thyme

And from Consumer Reports:

Roughly one-third of the tested products, 40 in total, had high enough levels of arsenic, lead, and cadmium combined, on average, to pose a health concern for children when regularly consumed in typical serving sizes. Most raised concern for adults, too.

For two herbs, thyme and oregano, all the products we tested had levels that CR experts say are concerning.

In 31 products, levels of lead were so high that they exceeded the maximum amount anyone should have in a day, according to CR’s experts.

When people think about heavy metals in their diet it’s probably the lead in their drinking water. But our tests show that dried herbs and spices can be a surprising, and worrisome, source.

Also troubling: There was no single predictor of which products contained higher levels of heavy metals—for example, brand name didn’t matter, and neither did “organic” or “packed in USA” claims.

Now, as I promised….let’s talk solutions.

I NEVER leave you with just the problem.

You know I’ve got the solution!

In fact, this is EXACTLY why I started my new Mission back in February.

The new mission is simply this: to help build out the Parallel-Economy.

Because here’s what I realized…

You THINK you have a choice between all these companies listed below in the circle, but what most people don’t realize is they’re all owned by only 11 companies.  


Interesting number.

Will probably be even less than that in the future when these merge even further.

It’s an ILLUSION of choice.

The same goes for all your media…

It’s just an ILLUSION of different choices, but owned by these 6 companies:

Now back to my Mission and my solution.

I figured I would eventually need to build a Parallel-Economy from the ground up.

I knew that would be a ton of work.

So it was on my back-burner.

In fact, it had been there on my back-burner since about 2016.

Until suddenly, in January of 2023, I connected with a company I had never heard of before….but they’re MASSIVE.

They’ve been in business for over 35 years and they’re a VERY pro-American, pro-Liberty, pro-Conservative values company!

They’re an American based, Made-In-America, warehoused-in-America, shipped-from-America company!

In fact, they’re the last private, family-owned, pro-American consumer goods company left in America NOT owned by those 11 companies I showed you above.

Oh, and what if I told you the products are BETTER and often CHEAPER than what you get from those 11 companies above?

Yes, for real.

And their founder was once placed on Barack Hussein Obama’s list of the Top 10 most “Dangerous Conservatives” in America?

(a list I one day hope to make myself!)

Once I learned all of that, I knew I no longer had to build this from the ground-up by myself, I simply needed to partner with this awesome company to help them get the word out.

So on top of being the last Family-owned major consumer goods manufacturer not part of the Big-11, comparable or often lower prices, supporting American jobs and families, here’s the part that ties in to the main point of this article”.

Non-toxic products!

That means no Arsenic, Cadmium, and Lead in their Spices!

Which really, if we’re being honest, should be the bare minimum for everyone, right?

Stunning I even have to tell you that, but I guess I do!

But it also means no Red Dye 40 or flouride in the toothpaste or chemicals in the cleaning products, or Deet in the mosquito repellant.

What novel concepts, right?

Oh, and Black Angus beef, pasture raised on hundreds of thousands of acres.

Free roaming with plenty of open air between all the cattle.

Grass fed.

No hormones and no antibiotics.  Never!

Oh, and it’s CHEAPER than Omaha Steaks!

But that’s a whole other topic!

Sound good to anyone else?

Me too!

The reason you’ve never heard of them is because it’s Invite Only.

I can get you in, but you can’t just go sign up.

They only want people on the same mission to join and they’re happy to say “no” to the Far-Left Libs!

They’ve been doing it for 37 years and it’s been working great.

Everyone gets a personal, white glove, concierge customer service support to get you access to everything they have.

Imagine that!

No call centers from India.

Just real, friendly, helpful and NICE Americans helping Americans!

Wow, like going back in a time-machine.

So it is Invite only…and good thing you know someone that has the invites….(me!).

If you’d like to find out more and get a FREE personal invite, just go here and tell them Noah sent you:

It’s the real deal, and because they don’t raise the Black Angus like the big companies do, they may have the SHUT OFF invites if they grow too fast.

So if you want in, let me know soon.

There’s only one pro-American, American made and manufactured, chemical free, toxin free, hormone free, company left….and I’m teaming up with them to FIGHT BACK!

Who’s with me?

In fact, I’ve assembled a team of patriots who will personally get you invited and signed up….if you want in.

Folks, we don’t have many strongholds left.

This is one.

Tell them Noah sent you and I promise you will get a personal call, text or email.

Don’t freak out when you do.

And make sure you tell them you are interested in the Black Angus beef too!

I know I tend to get concerned when I get messages from numbers I don’t recognize, but if you request a Free Invite (Link here: you WILL have someone from my Inner Circle reach out to you….so be ready!

These are awesome people and I think you’ll love getting a chance to talk with them.

And they’ll help get you all set up.

Who’s with me and who’s ready to stop eating Arsenic, Cadmium, and Lead?

Your friend,

– Noah

p.s. Since everyone gets personal attention, we will take these in the order in which they come in.  So if you are excited, ask for your invite now or you might be far down on the list.  I have a great team, but they can only do so much and they’ll work on a first-come, first-served basis.
