CVS, Rite Aid, Walmart stop selling J&J baby powder due to asbestos

Walmart, CVS Health and Rite Aid will remove all 22-ounce containers of Johnson & Johnson's baby powder from their shelves after the FDA found small traces of asbestos in the product, according to CNBC.

CVS Health warned customers who purchased the product from CVS stores to discontinue use and return them for a refund.

Rite Aid told CNBC in an emailed statement that it informed all stores to pull the product from shelves and store it in a secure location.

J&J voluntarily recalled one lot, or about 33,000 bottles, of baby powder last week and is working with investigators to determine the integrity of the test sample and validity of the test results, according to CNBC.
