Asbestos in Baby Powder

Asbestos in Baby Powder
•Asbestos is a term used to refer to six naturally occurring silicate minerals. All are composed of long and thin fibrous crystals, each fiber being composed of many microscopic ‘fibrils’ that can be released into the atmosphere by abrasion and other processes. 
•When asbestos is used for its resistance to fire or heat, the fibers are often mixed with cement or woven into fabric or mats. These desirable properties led to asbestos being used very widely.
•Johnson and Johnson (J&J) recalled 33,000 bottles of one lot of its talcum powder (Baby Powder) supplied in the United States (US) on October 18, 2019, as asbestos was found in it.
