India's top drug regulator has asked J&J Pvt. Ltd to reveal the composition of its talcum powder, two people aware of the matter said. The company's US parent was ordered to pay $4.7 billion to 22 women who claimed asbestos in its talc had caused them ovarian cancer. Johnson and Johnson insists its talc is safe and pure, and plans to appeal the verdict.
