J&J recalls baby powder due to asbestos

Johnson & Johnson is recalling 33,000 bottles of baby powder after an FDA test found small traces of asbestos in the product. 

The recall is limited to one lot of baby powder made in the U.S. last year. 

People that have baby powder from lot 22318RB are advised to discontinue use of the product. 

J&J "has immediately initiated a rigorous, thorough investigation into this matter, and is working with the FDA to determine the integrity of the tested sample and the validity of the test results," the company's statement reads.
