Johnson & Johnson and Wal-Mart Sued for Selling Toxic Baby Shampoo

There is class action lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson and Wal-Mart Stores of selling shampoo and baby wash that allegedly contains methylene chloride, an ingredient banned by the FDA in cosmetics because it’s linked to cancer. Johnson & Johnson said it would reformulate all of its beauty and baby care products, including Aveeno, Neutrogena and Johnson’s Baby Shampoo, by the end of 2015.  The reformulations will either reduce or eliminate toxic chemicals that are increasingly being linked to health problems such as breast cancer, diabetes and birth defects.
 Johnson & Johnson ingredients:
Water, PEG-80 Sorbitan Laurate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium
Trideceth Sulfate, Glycerin, Lauroamphoglycinate, PEG-150 Distearate,
Sodium Laureth-13 Carboxylate, Fragrance, Polyquaternium-10,
Tetrasodium EDTA, Quaternium-15, Citric Acid, D&C Yellow #10, D&C
Orange #4.
