If you purchased Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Shampoo or Wal-Mart brand Equate Tearless Baby Wash, you may want to stop using it. A class action lawsuit has been approved this month that claims these products may contain a toxin linked to cancer.
The class action lawsuit, filed earlier this year, accuses 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. The law firm that filed the lawsuit is also investigating Target’s Night-time Bath and Body Wash, which is not currently named in the suit.
A third Johnson & Johnson plant is now also under investigation for alleged quality concerns. The new Johnson & Johnson plant is one that manufactures Pepcid and Mylanta among other products.

Thank you Pam! It is good to be informed!
If it is made with such a chemical wouldn't it have to be put in the list of ingredients? Of course I know it takes time for the FDA to catch some things, just as it's only just become an issue that stores sell "Pure honey" that shows only honey in the ingredients but that it has High Fructose Corn Syrup in it.
It seems that everything is being linked to cancer now a days...starting to think they're just labeling stuff out so they can keep others in fear so we have to look up to them for everything.
