Johnson & Johnson shares collapsed amid reports the US launched a criminal investigation against the company


In relation to the American corporation Johnson & Johnson, the US Department of Justice is conducting a criminal investigation, examining the possibility of the company hiding information that the use of talcum powders could have resulted in risks of cancer. According to Bloomberg, this information led to a fall in its shares by 4% on the New York Stock Exchange on Friday. It was the worst dynamic among large companies in the consumer sector. It is not the first time when the US Department is considering the possible content of carcinogenic substances in the company's products. In December last year, its shares also collapsed, when the media reported that the company could hide information about the presence of asbestos in products containing talc. Then representatives of the company denied this information.
