(CNN) – Johnson and Johnson is recalling some of its baby powder after it was found to be contaminated with asbestos.
The food and drug administration discovered the asbestos in a bottle of powder purchased online.
In response, Johnson and Johnson issued a voluntary recall for one lot of its powder Friday.
The affected bottles were produced and shipped last year.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that is found close to the mines used to gather talc.
Johnson and Johnson runs the website “facts about talc.com” — which insists the talc it uses is safe.
The company has lost several multi-million dollar court cases claiming asbestos in its talcum powder causes cancer.
