Neutrogena Sunscreen Lawsuit: Benezene Cancer Claims

Our firm is actively investigating claims that certain Neutrogena sunscreens cause cancer, including leukemia, chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), non-Hodgkins lymphoma, and multiple myeloma, among others. Riddle & Brantley is committed to fighting for justice for deserving victims in benzene sunscreen lawsuits.

HEADS UP: In July 2021, Johnson & Johnson issued a sunscreen recall of certain Neutrogena and Aveeno sunscreen products, acknowledging that the presence of benzene in these sunscreens may increase the risk of cancer.

Neutrogena Sunscreen Lawsuits Consolidated in MDL

In October 2021, Neutrogena sunscreen lawsuits — along with other benzene lawsuits concerning other brands like Aveeno — were consolidated in multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the Southern District of Florida. This is an important step forward for plaintiffs, and means that costs associated with evidence discovery will be shared and the legal process will be streamlined into key "bellwether" trials that will be used to weigh evidence. Bellwether trials typically influence potential settlements (though no Neutrogena sunscreen lawsuits have been settled to date and there are no guarantees). Johnson & Johnson, the manufacturer of Neutrogena sunscreen, strongly denies any allegations of negligence or wrongdoing.

"Does Neutrogena Sunscreen Cause Cancer?"

Certain Neutrogena sunscreens (as well as other brands of sunscreen) have been found to contain benzene, a known cancer-causing chemical. Johnson & Johnson and other manufacturers maintain that the presence of benzene is unintentional, and all defendant(s) have denied allegations of negligence and/or wrongdoing.

In its statement announcing the Neutrogena sunscreen recall (also affecting Aveeno products), Johnson & Johnson said that benzene “could potentially cause cancer depending on the level and extent of exposure.”

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), part of the World Health Organization (WHO), classifies benzene as a carcinogen, meaning that it can cause cancer. IARC notes that benzene (as found in certain Neutrogena and other sunscreens) has been linked to acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), multiple myeloma, and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Many other scientific organizations and government agencies have also designated benzene as a human carcinogen, including the National Toxicology Program (NTP) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), and the Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

To be clear, benzene in Neutrogena sunscreen (and other sunscreen brands) may represent a clear and present danger, and can potentially cause cancer.
